This Week's LA Deal Sheet
Seco Canyon Village, a 42,134 SF shopping center in Santa Clarita anchored by a CVS Pharmacy, sold for $15.5M.
The buyer was a private 1031 exchange buyer, a family trust based in Beverly Hills. The seller was a Beverly Hills private investor.
Seco Canyon Village is at 22872-22892 Copper Hill Drive and 27911-27983 Seco Canyon Road.
In addition to CVS, which has a drive-thru pharmacy, the 12-year-old Seco Canyon Village's tenants include AIM Mail Center, Papa John's Pizza, Verizon Wireless and Supercuts.
CVS represents 41% of the tenancy and has successfully operated at the center since it was built.
Outside of CVS, 100% of the tenants have signed new leases or extended their existing leases. Eighty-two percent of the tenants have been in the center for at least six years.
"The buyer was seeking an investment that would balance a high-quality location while still providing a higher yield than the single-tenant property the buyer sold in the exchange downleg," Hanley Investment Group Executive Vice President Kevin Fryman said. "Seco Canyon Village accomplished these objectives as the demographics are very affluent with an average household income of $131K in a one-mile radius."
Fryman and President Ed Hanley represented the buyer and seller.
Fryman said having CVS as the anchor provides the stability of a long-term lease.
The seller felt it was an ideal time to sell with interest rates and cap rates continuing to remain low combined with a 96% occupied center with minimum near-term lease rollover, he said.
