SRS Real Estate Partners, San Diego, Planet Fitness, Sorrento Mesa, Sorrento Towers

Newport Beach, CA – SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group (NNLG) has completed the $8.15 million sale of a 17,000-square-foot single-tenant property occupied by Planet Fitness located at 9420 Scranton Road in San Diego, CA. At a 4.90% cap rate, the sale broke a national record for the lowest ever cap rate for a Planet Fitness-occupied property, per CoStar.

SRS NNLG’s Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a Southern California-based retail property owner and operator, and the buyer, a Southern California-based family partnership, who paid all-cash.

“At the entrance of the Sorrento Mesa hub, this asset offers the new ownership a prime San Diego infill location just two miles from UCSD and adjacent to Sorrento Towers which is a direct customer base for Planet Fitness to draw from,” said Mousavi. “The demand from investors and tenants for fitness property is back, and this high-profile, record-breaking low cap rate sale is testament to that. We received a tremendous amount of interest and several offers.”

Built in 1986 and renovated in 2020, the property sits on 1.74 acres at the intersection of Mira Mesa Boulevard and Scranton Road and near the 805 freeway. There are more than 239,000 residents and 287,000 employees within five miles of the property.
