Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, one of the most dominant retail investment groups in the western United States and a market leader in the sale of retail properties, announced today Edward B. Hanley and Eric P. Wohl of Hanley Investment Group represented the seller in the sale of a multi-tenant retail strip center in Orange County, Calif. The purchase price was $2,990,007, representing $312 per square foot.
The 9,597-square-foot retail center, known as Walnut Newport Center, is located at 13842 Newport Avenue in Tustin. The four-tenant strip center is anchored by Blockbuster Video and is situated on a 0.74 acre parcel of land. Built in 1986, Walnut Newport Center was 100 percent occupied at the time of sale.
“It was a rare sale of a multi-tenant strip center in Orange County,” said Edward B. Hanley, president at Hanley Investment Group, based in Irvine, Calif. “Due to the property’s excellent location and surrounding demographics, we experienced a great deal of interest.”
“It was a challenging transaction due to the uncertainty of Blockbuster Video as a tenant in today’s market and the fact that they occupied approximately 65 percent of the property’s square footage,” said Eric P. Wohl, a vice president at Hanley Investment Group. “The strength of the location overcame initial objections and the future potential to re-tenant the space if Blockbuster Video were to vacate the premises.”
Hanley notes the sale was an all cash transaction.
The buyer, Lee Family Trust of Orange County, Calif. was represented by Chuck Hathoot of Prudential California Realty based in Laguna Niguel, Calif. The seller was Westwood Financial of Los Angeles, Calif.
