Set to open in late June and early July at Long Beach Exchange, GritCycleRa Yoga, and Orange Theory Fitness have reported impressive membership and package sales — powerful evidence that boutique fitness is of high interest and relevance to area residents and consumers.

Marc Thomas

Long Beach Exchange is proud to welcome Orangetheory Fitness, a national boutique fitness studio with locations throughout Southern California, to its roster. The new, state-of-the-art studio recently opened on June 6 and has already become a hit with the local community.

“The opening of our LBX location marks a milestone for Orangetheory Fitness, as we already have achieved an opening membership level unsurpassed by any other location in the region,” said Marc Thomas, LBX Studio Owner and Area Developer of Orangetheory Fitness. “Typically, a location opens with approximately 400 members, and we have far exceeded that - the LBX location is one of our strongest openings yet.” 
Stephen Thorp

“Ra Yoga is so excited to be joining the Long Beach community. The interest in our special promotions, class packs and unlimited membership programs has been far better than anticipated,” said Robert Kittleman, co-owner of Ra Yoga. 

“The volume of inquiries has been astonishing, and many of the people who have shared excitement about our Long Beach location have never visited our studios in Orange County. We didn’t expect to be so well received even prior to opening.”

“As we continue welcoming new tenants to the LBX roster, we are increasingly pleased with the positive feedback they are receiving by the local community,” says Steve Thorp, Director of Acquisitions and Partner at Burnham-Ward Properties – the developers, owners and operators of Long Beach Exchange.

 “At Anthem, we created an urban, creative experience that resonates with the market. Every project is unique because every market is different, and we work very closely with the neighborhoods we serve to deliver a quality development that enhances the community.”

a saltwater pool with a sun deck and private cabanas; 24-hour fitness center with group classes; poolside club room and sky deck overlooking Historic Fourth Ward Park; outdoor grilling stations and fire pit; clubhouse with bar lounge; bike storage;

JLL Completes Sale of Redeveloped Ocotillo Plaza in Chandler, AZ

Ocotillo Plaza, Chandler, AZ

Peter Bauman

PHOENIX, AZ – The Phoenix office of JLL has completed the $11.2 million sale of Ocotillo Plaza, a redeveloped retail building situated in the heart of Chandler’s Ocotillo area, a thriving residential, retail and employment hub adjacent to the popular Price Road commercial corridor.

JLL Senior Vice Presidents Peter Bauman and Tivon Moffitt, Senior Managing Director Dennis Desmond and Senior Vice President Tyson Switzenberg represented the building seller, Thompson Thrift Retail Group. Nina Patel represented the buyer, Southern California-based Slater Avenue II LP.

Ocotillo Plaza totals 121,829 square feet at 2880 S. Alma School Road, on the northwest corner of Queen Creek and Alma School roads in Chandler, Arizona.

Tivon Moffitt
 The building and 10-acre site was purchased in 2017 by Thompson Thrift and then renovated from a former Target store into a multi-tenant retail building that is now fully leased to Goodwill and the flagship location of Shoppers Supply, a ranch, home and outdoor supply retailer.

The repositioned building sits within the larger Ocotillo Plaza shopping center, which is also in the process of a redevelopment that includes the addition of an Aldi supermarket. 

It is part of a desirable retail corridor boasting anchor tenants such as Albertsons, HomeGoods, Office Max, Sprouts and Stein Mart.

“Investors continue to be attracted to high quality, stabilized greater Phoenix commercial real estate, and that created significant investor demand for this listing,” said Bauman.

Dennis Desmond
“The area’s demographics, combined with this building’s newly renovated space and its stable long-term tenancy, were a strong draw for the buyer. 

"We were very pleased to work with them on a property that we believe will provide a high-quality, income-producing asset for their portfolio.”

 “It has been a pleasure to work with the entire JLL team on this transaction,” said Chris Hake, Thompson Thrift Vice President, Director of the Southwest Region.

 “We feel this redevelopment exemplifies the need for creativity in today’s retail real estate environment. As the Prie Road corridor continues to grow its office presence and its number of daily employees, this intersection of Alma School and Queen Creek Road will continue to show strong results from the retailers that are located there.

Tyson Switzenberg
"Again, thank you to Tyson Switzenberg, Peter Bauman and Tivon Moffitt for their outstanding work on this project.”

Ocotillo Plaza is the second project sold by the JLL team in the Ocotillo/Price Road corridor area in the past few months. Their other recent transaction was the sale of a single-tenant, Class A office building located on the Price Road corridor. That office building, which is fully occupied by Walgreens, sold during the first quarter for $16.7 million.
