CBRE’s Philip D. Voorhees and Jimmy Slusher of the NRP-West Team Complete Sale of Regional Mall in Santa Maria, CA

Santa Maria Town Center, Santa Maria, CA

SANTA MARIA, CA – CBRE Executive Vice President Philip D. Voorhees and Vice President Jimmy Slusher announced the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West) completed the sale of Santa Maria Town Center in Santa Maria, California, a regional mall anchored by Sears and Macy’s (both not a part of the sale) and a high performing Edwards Theatres RPX Digital Cinema among an assortment of regional and national tenants.

Philip D. Voorhees
 CBRE retail experts George Good, James Tyrrell, Slusher and Voorhees represented the seller, Goldman Sachs, a New York-based leading global investment banking, securities and investment management firm. The buyer, a global insurance company, purchased the property.

Built in 1976, Santa Maria Town Center (SMTC) is a 331,804-square-foot regional mall, situated on 6.11 acres of land at 100 Town Center East in Santa Maria, adjacent to the Santa Maria City Hall, Civic Center, Santa Barbara Superior Court, and the city transit center.

Jimmy Slusher
 “SMTC represents the only enclosed shopping experience or department store option within a 60-mile radius,” said Slusher. “Santa Maria Town Center’s continued performance with year-over-year NOI growth, increasing tenant sales and new tenant leasing interest has bucked today’s mall trends, representative of its downtown location and connection to the residents of the expanded Santa Maria trade area.”

 Voorhees said, “Opportunities to purchase performing properties for perhaps 20 percent of land-inclusive replacement cost at double-digit cap rates are very compelling. 

George Good
"As more ‘box’ anchor spaces are acquired from failing tenants, we expect the mall narrative to become very positive. 

"Malls were built in the ‘center of the trade area’ locations and Santa Maria Town Center is great real estate. We look forward to following the property’s progress in the years to come.”

CBRE’s marketing efforts produced more than 283 confidentiality agreement/offering memoranda distributed and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated 19 offers to purchase the property, according to Voorhees.

 With this closing, CBRE's NRP-West team topped $10.8 billion in successfully closed retail investment sale transactions. 

Select NRP-West team California listings include: The Outlets at the Border in San Ysidro, listed for $60,000,000; Market Place at Oxnard in Oxnard, listed for $42,500,000; and Albertsons in downtown San Diego, listed for $23,000,000. More information is available at
