NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $64.1 million sale of Glendale Marketplace, a 154,049-square-foot urban retail center with popular big-box tenants in the heart of the northern Los Angeles-area community of Glendale, California.
JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, EB Arrow. Chicago-based Pine Tree acquired the asset.
Glendale Marketplace is 94.8 percent leased to an impressive variety of some of the most popular fitness, home furnishings restaurant and discount store retailers in the country, including Ross Dress for Less, LA Fitness, HomeGoods, Five Below, Buffalo Wild Wings and Old Navy. Constructed in 1998, the property offers a large pedestrian alleyway lined with retail suits and has ample parking augmented by an adjacent public parking garage owned by the city.
The retail center is situated on 2.2 acres at 106-146 S. Brand Blvd. in an urban, infill area of Glendale, which, with a population of more than 595,000, is the third largest city in Los Angeles County. Glendale Marketplace is in a rapidly expanding trade area that has added more than 2,100 multi-housing units within walking distance in the past five years, and more than 238,200 residents live within a three-mile radius with an average annual household income of $96,384.
The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Managing Directors Gleb Lvovich, Bryan Ley and Geoff Tranchina and Senior Director Daniel Tyner.
“We are extremely excited and bullish on big-box retail, especially in urban areas,” Lvovich said. “With retailers efficiently utilizing their stores to facilitate in-person shopping, returns and last-mile fulfilment, bricks and mortar have never been more relevant.”
