IRVINE, Calif. — Shopoff Realty Investments (“Shopoff”), a national manager of opportunistic and value-add real estate investments, announced today that the company has successfully sold Mead Valley Quarry, comprising 577 acres of vacant land located in unincorporated Riverside County, for $23 million to San Diego-based developer Lansing Companies. 

The property was historically used for surface mining of granite rock, but had not been actively mined for several decades. After purchasing the land, Shopoff completed surveying and testing to determine potential uses for the property. With the land rich in valuable, high-grade aggregate materials, Shopoff began crafting a strategy to secure vested mining rights for the property so it could be later developed into an modern operational aggregate rock quarry.

“Mead Valley Quarry was a unique opportunity for our team to focus on what was in the ground, rather than what we could build on top of it,” explained Shopoff Realty Investments President and Chief Executive Officer William Shopoff. “Over the last few years, we had worked closely with our team to secure vested mining rights and determine how this land could be elevated to its highest and best use. After receiving the unsolicited offer, resulting in the mutually beneficial sale, we are thrilled to be able to refocus our efforts to our next project, and look forward to seeing what the future holds for this unique property.”

The property is located northwest of the City of Perris, California, at the intersection of Rider Street and Seaton Avenue, providing easy access via Interstate 215.
