Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors announced today that in the last two months, Hanley Investment Group has sold seven shopping centers totaling over $40 million and more than 250,000 square feet, and is now marketing for sale three Southern California grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping centers totaling $112 million.
According to Edward B. Hanley, president of Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, the retail investment marketplace in Southern California has seen a flurry of activity in the past several months causing some excitement in what has otherwise been a very quiet year. "In addition to a few high profile bank-owned properties, we have also seen more equity sellers begin to come to the market with institutional quality shopping centers," Hanley reported. "Although the market fundamentals for retail properties still have some time left to completely recover, look for retail investment sales activity to increase as investors begin to tire of waiting for the avalanche of distressed opportunities that have failed to materialize."
Additionally, Hanley stated that his firm recently negotiated the following shopping center sales in the last 60 days: Grand Covina Plaza in Covina, Calif. (112,200 sq. ft.); Trussville Marketplace in Trussville, Ala. (67,325 sq. ft.); Foothill Promenade in La Cañada, Calif. (42,093 sq. ft.); Rowland Plaza, Covina, Calif. (17,553 sq. ft.); Yorba Linda Plaza, Yorba Linda, Calif. (7,345 sq. ft.); Single-Tenant Red Robin in Apple Valley, Calif. (5,532 sq. ft.); and Single-Tenant Del Taco in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. (2,200 sq. ft.).
