IRVINE, Calif., July 21, 2015 – Faris Lee Investments, a leading retail advisory and investment sales firm, has completed the $9.73 million sale of a freestanding, 15,413-square-foot, single-tenant retail property that is occupied by Walgreens in Tucson, Ariz. The property’s absolute, NNN-lease with Walgreens is corporate-guaranteed and has 23 years remaining on its 25-year initial term.
Nick Coo, Matt Mousavi and Patrick Luther of Faris Lee Investments represented the seller, Los Angeles-based Sierra Industrial, LLC. The buyer, Los Angeles-based Capital Forsight, paid all cash and was represented by CAPRE Real Estate Investments. The transaction closed at a cap rate of 5.25 percent.
“This property offered an attractive long-term Walgreen’s lease with rental increases in the option periods,” said Coo. “Faris Lee highlighted the unusual increases in rent during the extension periods; the excellent hard corner location; and the fact that the adjacent center to the rear was under redevelopment. We secured five strong offers and selected a qualified, all-cash buyer who was able to close escrow within a very tight timeframe per the seller’s requirement.”
Built in 2008, the property is located on a signalized intersection at 7111 East Golf Links Road and is an outparcel to the 99 Cent Only-anchored Desert Square Shopping Center. Other nearby retailers include Walmart, Safeway, Fry’s Food and Drug, and O’Reilly Auto Parts. Walgreens is within a densely populated area with more than 212,000 permanent residents within a five-mile radius and in excess of 110,000 daytime employees.
