Primior’s First Harbor Plaza Development in Santa Ana, CA Opportunity Zone to Break Ground June 26

First Harbor Plaza development in Santa Ana, CA
 Breaks Ground June 26
NEWPORT BEACH, CA, June 18, 2019 – Primior, a leading real estate development and investment management firm, is scheduled to break ground on its First Harbor Plaza development in Santa Ana on Wed., June 26, 2019.

Two major tenants are already in place for the mixed-use project, Chase Bank and Optima Salon Suites.

At the intersection of N. Harbor Blvd. and W. 1st St., First Harbor Plaza is a 40,129-sq.-ft. restaurant, retail, office and medical property located in one of Santa Ana’s busiest areas with high traffic counts of some 71,000 cars daily.

Johnney Zhang
The surrounding area has a population of just over 784,000 within five miles. A key draw of the property is its location in a recently established Opportunity Zone.

“We are very pleased to be developing one of the first properties of this type in Santa Ana under this important program,” said Primior CEO Johnney Zhang.

“The positive impact this innovative financing model will have on the local community in terms of strong economic opportunities and an enhanced quality of life has led us to seek out areas where we can make a contribution.”

The Opportunity Zone program was created by the 2017 Tax Cuts & Jobs Act to revitalize economically distressed communities through private investment as opposed to taxpayer dollars. Opportunity Zones have now been designated in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. possessions.

To motivate participation in the program, taxpayers investing in a Qualified Opportunity Zone via an Opportunity Fund can benefit from capital gains tax incentives available exclusively through the program. Moreover, in comparison to other programs that encourage private investment in low-income areas through tax advantages, the Opportunity Zone program is less restrictive, costly and reliant upon government agencies.

First Harbor Plaza includes two structures. Building 1 encompasses some 14,400 sq. ft. in two large anchor suites and five smaller spaces on the first floor, with the same configuration on the second floor. 

Chase Bank occupies the premium, first-floor corner space in that building. Building 2 includes approximately 3,880 sq. ft. on the first floor, two suites on the second floor totaling 3,778 sq. ft. and a third-floor suite of 3,778 sq. ft. to be occupied by Optima Salon Suites.

Daum Commercial Directs Sale of $8 million, 123,754-SF Industrial Asset in Phoenix, AZ

  • Trevor McKendry
    PHOENIX, AZ – DAUM Commercial Real Estate Services has completed the sale of a 123,754 square-foot industrial building in the Southwest submarket of Phoenix, Arizona on behalf of both the buyer, Exeter Property Group, and seller, David Turner International, LLC.
 The property was purchased for $8.16 million. The building is located at 4502 W. Monterosa Street in Phoenix, Arizona.

The buyer will benefit from the property’s long-term, in-place lease to a food processing and manufacturing tenant, as well as its location within the Southwest Valley submarket, which has seen sustained rent growth over the past several years, notes Trevor McKendry, a Vice President at DAUM Commercial, who completed the sale alongside DAUM First Vice President Chris Rogers.

“The industrial sector in Phoenix has experienced strong investor capital interest as the city continues to see a tremendous amount of economic, employment, and population growth,” says McKendry.

Chris Rogers
 “Through our long-standing connections and focus in the metro-Phoenix industrial market, we were able to secure the deal with Exeter, whose Phoenix industrial presence enabled them to quickly recognize the opportunity to acquire a property of this size off market.”

The Phoenix industrial market experienced a decrease in vacancy to 7.1 percent in Quarter 1, with an uptick in new construction deliveries, and very strong activity amongst all product and tenant types, notes Rogers, citing a recent DAUM report.

 This asset benefits from a prime location that offers convenient access to major freeways including I-10, I-17, U.S. 60, 101 FWY, and the South Mountain 202, which is currently under construction.

Rogers adds: “These route options ultimately provide shorter drive times to other major markets, and are considered a demand driver for the area. The property also benefits from features that are all synonymous with the functionalities of today’s user needs.”

The asset itself is situated on a fully paved 7.2-acre site and includes an air-conditioned warehouse, six dock-high and two grade-level doors, ample parking, and a clear height of 24 feet.
