BLT Enterprises Acquires Golf Manufacturing Facility in San Diego, CA for $38 Million

Industrial Facility, Carlsbad, CA
Bernard Huberman

San Diego, CA  BLT Enterprises, a multi-faceted real estate investment company, has acquired a 166,310 square-foot industrial facility in the Carlsbad submarket of San Diego, California that is fully leased to a global leader in golf equipment and apparel. The property, which serves as a manufacturing facility, was acquired off-market for $38,250,000.
“This was a rare opportunity to invest in a Class A industrial property with a major credit tenant in place, representing a tremendous long-term value proposition,” says Bernard Huberman, Founder and CEO of BLT Enterprises. “The acquisition is well-aligned with our ongoing platform, which is to make strategic investments that deliver value over long hold periods.”
Huberman points to an increasing tightening in the San Diego industrial market, specifically in the North County region, as an indication of why the timing was right for this acquisition.

Ron Jacobson
“Industrial vacancy ended 2017 at 4.97-percent - a 13 basis point drop from the prior quarter,” he says. “That said, development has ramped up, and with more than 1.8 million square feet of product under construction, supply will soon begin to meet demand.  In this case, our new tenant recently renewed its full-building lease for ten years, delivering strong, consistent cash flow for the next decade.”
Ron Jacobson of SD Realty Partners represented BLT Enterprises as the buyer, and Aric Starck of Cushman & Wakefield’s San Diego office represented HGREIT II 2819 LOKER LP as the seller in the transaction.
The property is located at 2819 Loker Avenue in Carlsbad, California.

Hanley Investment Group Completes Sale of Six Retail Pads at Walmart-Anchored Shopping Center in Inland Southern California Totaling $29.5 Million

Perris Marketplace, Perris, CA

PERRIS, CA - Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally-recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced the firm has completed the sale of six retail pads in separate transactions at Perris Marketplace, a 225,000-square-foot Walmart Supercenter-anchored shopping center in the City of Perris, California.

Bill Asher
The 100-percent-occupied properties totaling approximately 39,000 square feet consisted of three multi-tenant pad buildings and three single-tenant fast-food pad restaurants. The combined sales price for the six pads was approximately $29.5 million.

Hanley Investment Group Executive Vice President Bill Asher and Senior Associate Jeff Lefko represented the seller, owner and developers Evergreen and Trachman Indevco, in the sale of the six retail pads.

 Spanning the last 42 years, Evergreen is a national retail and multi-family development company with heavy emphasis on developing projects in California, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. Trachman Indevco is a real estate investment and development company that specializes in new ground-up retail development and retail development/repositioning opportunities in southern and central California. 

“On behalf of the partnership we are extremely happy with the professionalism, strategic execution and outstanding results that Bill Asher and Hanley Investment Group exhibited throughout the sales of multiple transactions of both single-tenant and multi-tenant assets,” said Andy Trachman, president of Trachman Indevco.

Perris Marketplace is located at 1820-2000 North Perris Boulevard in Perris, less than ¼ mile from the heavily traveled I-215 freeway. The center was originally planned to include two multi-tenant shop buildings but, due to the high demand, a third approximate 12,500-square-foot shop building was added to accommodate tenant interest.

Jeff Lefco
 The impressive line-up of retailers features a variety of popular food and service tenants including America's Best Contacts and Eyeglasses, Chipotle, Dickey's BBQ, Great Clips, Jamba Juice, Jimmy John’s, Pacific Dental, Panda Express, Pieology, Popeye's, Sally Beauty, Starbucks, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Waba Grill, Wendy’s and Yogurtland.         

“Investors and the eventual buyers were very attracted to the overall strength of the location and the history of Walmart being established in the area since 1992,” said Asher.

“The original Walmart in Perris was the first to open in all of Riverside County. The relocation to the subject site to build a new Supercenter format store in 2015 showed Walmart’s long-term commitment to the region and was a key driver to investors’ interest in each pad within the project.”

“We were able to maximize value for the owner through individual sales to private non-institutional investors in a price range ($2-$10 million) that in today’s market appeals to arguably the largest buyer pool in the retail investment industry.

"Four of the six buyers satisfied 1031 exchange requirements with most purchasing each asset because of the reliable stable income stream created by internet- resistant, service-based, national and regional credit tenants on new long-term leases,” Asher said.

“In addition to executing a break-up sale strategy, with interest rates rising and the overall retail market continuing to transition in regard to pricing, we implemented a pre-sale marketing process on multiple buildings prior to completion of construction to help the seller retain maximum value for the development.

Andy Trachman
"For multiple transactions, we were able to procure buyers for each asset prior to each building being completed, and structure closings after tenants had finished their build-outs and opened for business,” said Asher.

“Perris Marketplace is one of the best positioned and highest profile new regional retail sites in Riverside County. The combination of the quality of location, draw of Walmart and brand-new construction, were all factors that generated a significant amount of interest in each retail pad,” Asher said.

“Newly-built single-tenant NNN retail investments and multi-tenant retail leased to food and service-based credit tenants, will continue to be highly sought-after in today’s market,” said Asher. “We continue to experience steady demand and values have yet to significantly decline of this size and type over the past four years. Properties priced $10 million or less will remain the most active.”

“Lenders continue to take a conservative position when approaching commercial loans, and this is especially true of distressed retail assets, which tend to be viewed as higher risk,” says Grimaldi. 
“To secure competitive financing for this property, we demonstrated to potential lenders the strong fundamentals presented by the shopping center, despite neglect from previous ownership, and how the asset would benefit from the Sponsor’s plans to establish a hands-on landlord approach.”
