Hanley Investment (HI) Urban Retail Advisors, a division of Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, specializing in the sale and advisory of high profile mixed-use and urban retail properties in dynamic commercial districts across the United States, announced that Carlos J. Lopez, President of HI Urban Retail Advisors, represented the seller in the purchase of the 10,583-square-foot retail building located along Pasadena’s renowned South Lake Avenue Retail District. The purchase price was not disclosed.
Located at 320 South Lake Avenue, the retail building is situated in the premier shopping corridor of Pasadena, Calif. The property’s dynamic urban location features neighboring retailers including Macy’s, Anthropologie, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn Kids, Talbots, Ann Taylor, Pacific Sales, Corner Bakery, Trader Joe's, The Children’s Place, and many others. The building was vacant at the time of sale.
The buyer, a private investor in Beverly Hills, Calif., was represented by Patrick Luther and Nicholas Coo of Faris Lee Investments of Irvine, Calif. The seller was a private investor based in Encino, Calif.
“The buyer competed with 6 other buyers that were also interested in buying the asset and had a desire to buy a building along this active street," Lopez stated. “The purchase price was in alignment with other vacant buildings located along South Lake Avenue, which have sold in the past 3 years.”
This transaction is the second sale HI Urban Retail Advisors has executed within the city of Pasadena and along South Lake Avenue in recent months. In November of 2011, the company executed the sale of The Commons along this district. The Commons is an 85,000-square-foot retail/office project consisting of high-profile retail and office space. The retailers include notable tenants such as: Williams-Sonoma, Lemonade, Green Street Café, The Counter, and Café 140.
