Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P., (HFF) is exclusively marketing for sale Plaza Del Sol, a 165,528-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center located adjacent to The Hollywood/Burbank Airport in the Los Angeles-area community of Burbank, California. Currently 100 percent leased, the retail property for sale is anchored by a top-performing Vallarta Supermarket and features a synergistic tenant roster well suited to community demographics. Additionally, the property offers significant upside via pad development and a fair market value adjustment in the anchor lease, while maintaining strong cash flow.

Plaza Del Sol includes nine separate condo units, which consists of a prototypical grocery-anchored center in the front and highly desirable industrial in the back that is leased to Oakwood Worldwide Housing, Diet to Go, Planet Fitness and Wet Design. These condo units can be held for cash flow growth or sold off to lower a potential investor’s basis and provide cap rate arbitrage. The Burbank industrial market is one of the most desirable infill markets in the country with virtually no space available for lease or for sale.

The property provides the opportunity to develop an approximately 900-square-foot retail pad site, providing immediate upside to investors. Current ownership is currently in negotiations with Starbucks to lease the pad site for development. Upon execution of the lease and completion of the development, investors will enjoy a boost in net operating income and experience more traffic to the property. Given Burbank’s extremely infill location, opportunities to develop are rare, making Plaza Del Sol a rare opportunity to acquire 11.4 acres in the heart of Burbank.

Retail Center for Sale Investment Highlights

  • Embedded Value with Significant Upside and Attractive In-Place Cash Flow:  Vallarta Supermarket is generating extremely strong sales and only paying a triple net lease equivalent rent of ±$0.92 per square foot per month, providing a great health ratio. Vallarta’s lease calls for a fair market value rent adjustment during the hold period, allowing potential investors to mark Vallarta’s lease to market and enjoy a significant increase in cash flow. Additionally, the potential to add a Starbucks drive thru (ease in negotiation) will add immediate upside. Plaza Del Sol is 100 percent leased with a strong occupancy history, offering potential investors income security to complement the potential upside available due to below market leases and current tenant interest.
  • Anchored by a High-Volume Grocery Store:  The retail property is anchored by Vallarta Supermarket (45,000 square feet), generating extremely strong sales. With 50 stores chain-wide, Vallarta Supermarket is well positioned to capitalize on the population growth and spending power of the Hispanic consumer in California. Other retail tenants include Subway, Metro PCS, Mega Dollar Store, Clinica Nueva Vida, KD Pharmacy, Fatburger and Pollo Campero.
  • Densely Populated, Urban Southern California Trade Area Ensures Customer Traffic and Limits Competition:  Given the 251,896 surrounding residents located within a three-mile radius of the property, the extremely high barriers to entry and the lack of developable land in the submarket, Plaza Del Sol is certain to provide long-term appreciation.
  • Irreplaceable Location Adjacent to the Burbank Airport:  The retail center for sale is at 10950 Sherman Way within infill Los Angeles and adjacent to the Burbank Airport, which will undergo a $400 million expansion and remodel in 2018 that will add significant traffic to the area and further strengthen the industrial portion of the property. This, coupled with the extreme density of the surrounding trade area positions Plaza Del Sol as a rare opportunity to assemble more than 160,000 square feet in the heart of Burbank.

Plaza Del Sol offers investors the opportunity to acquire a dominant grocery-anchored center in an extremely infill and high density pocket of Burbank. The property is offered without existing debt, allowing investors to take advantage of historically low interest rates and achieve enhanced leveraged returns.
