Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm arranged the sale of a recently constructed, two-tenant net-leased investment occupied by Mattress Firm and Club Champion located on an outparcel to Walmart Neighborhood Market on Highway 111 in Palm Desert, California. The sale price was $5 million.
Hanley Investment Group’s Executive Vice President Eric Wohl and Associate CJ Kiehler represented the buyer and seller. The seller, Sage Investco, is a developer based in Newport Beach, California, and the buyer is a private investor based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
“We generated multiple qualified offers and secured an all-cash 1031 exchange buyer who had a vacation home very close to the property,” said Wohl. “This property is located at one of the highest profile intersections in Palm Desert and will provide the buyer with an excellent long-term investment with strong cash flow.”
The two-tenant property occupied by Mattress Firm (3,800 square feet) and Club Champion (3,016 square feet) is located on a 0.18-acre parcel at 72306 Highway 111 and was built in 2019. The 6,816-square-foot property sits at the signalized intersection of Highway 111 and Fred Waring Drive, with 63,000 cars per day at the intersection. The property is an outparcel to a Walmart Neighborhood Market, with other tenants in the center including Shell Gas Station, Jiffy Lube, Marriot SpringHill Suites Hotel, and a future two-tenant shop building. The shopping center is surrounded by national credit tenants, including Target, Whole Foods Market, Nordstrom Rack, PGA Superstore, Trader Joe’s, Best Buy, Ross Dress For Less, T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, HomeGoods, Bed Bath & Beyond, Five Below, Aldi and others.
