This Week's LA Deal Sheet

Stevenson Ranch Plaza in Santa Clarita, a 187,035 SF shopping center anchored by Ralph's, just sold for $72.5M.


Bisnow caught up with Hanley Investment Group president Ed Hanley and InvenTrust Properties Corp SVP of transactions Chris Covey to get the scoop on the deal.

InvenTrust, a self-managed REIT, purchased the property from a local private investor.

Ed (pictured with his son, Brendan, in Cabo San Lucas) says the seller recognized this property was an "excellent fit for an institutional buyer" interested in acquiring a "top-notch retail center in a market with superior demographics."

The seller wanted to capitalize on the current market conditions, according to Ed.


Chris says Stevenson Ranch Plaza "met the parameters for InvenTrust Properties’ acquisition strategy," which include it being in a market with "projected income and population growth."

It helped that the property is close to three other InvenTrust centers in LA.

As a result, InvenTrust Properties will be able to apply "our strategic knowledge of the market to property leasing and operations," Chris says.
