There have been two Chino Hills multi-tenant retail property sales to report, in deals totaling just over $19 mil. The properties — Chino Hills Grand Plaza and Gateway Village — were acquired by separate buyers. They combine for 27.7k sf of space and are both located near Hwy 71 at the Grand Ave entrance/exit.
Both properties were sold by VantageOne Real Estate Investments of Newport Beach. The seller was repped in both transactions by Hanley Investment Group’s Ed Hanley, Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko.
“Investor demand for well-located, multi-tenant retail properties has been at unprecedented levels in the second half of 2021,” said Asher. “We generated many competitive and qualified offers on both Chino Hills Grand Plaza and Gateway Village, and secured two separate Southern California-based 1031 exchange buyers at 100% of the asking prices for both assets.”
In one of the deals, Chino Hills Grand Plaza, a 12.9k sf, multi-tenant retail building on 1.64 acres at 3410 Grand Ave in Chino Hills, sold for $11.425 mil.
