LONGVIEW, Wash. – CBRE Executive Vice President Philip D. Voorhees announced today that the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West) completed the sale of Triangle Center in Longview, Washington, a community center, 98 percent leased to high performing, national and regional credit tenants including Winco Foods (not a part), Ross Dress for Less, Bed Bath & Beyond, Michaels, Petco, Rite Aid, Ace Hardware, Ulta Beauty, Big 5, Office Depot along with Five Guys, Great Clips, GameStop and others. The purchase price was $38.3 million.
CBRE retail experts Jimmy Slusher, Kirk Brummer, James Tyrrell, Dino Christophilis, Alex Martinac and Voorhees represented the seller, Highlands REIT, a Chicago-based investment trust. The private buyer, based in San Diego, purchased Triangle Center to complete a 1031 exchange. CBRE’s Debt & Structured Finance team led by Shaun Moothart and Danielle Priore exclusively advised the buyer in procuring debt financing for the acquisition.
“Our team canvassed the debt market to drive leverage to a 72.5 percent loan-to-value, at a 154-spread with multiple years of interest only, maximizing the buyer’s levered cash on cash returns,” said Moothart.
Built in 2004, Triangle Center is a 260,627-square-foot community shopping center, situated on 36.9 acres of land at 1015 Ocean Beach Highway in Longview, roughly one hour north and west of Portland.
“Private capital investors snapping up institutional-quality shopping centers around the west is certainly a theme in 2018,” said Voorhees. “Our team sourced a high-net-worth family office investor, based in San Diego, completing a 1031 exchange for Triangle Center. The buyer’s offer was more competitive in price and terms than both institutional and well-known regional investors active in the Pacific Northwest.”
“Necessity and value-focused shopping centers, even in tertiary market areas, continue to perform well,” said Slusher. “Triangle Center is the one-stop location for Longview residents and the dominant community center in the trade area, pulling from a wide radius in this part of rural Washington.”
CBRE’s marketing efforts produced more than 284 confidentiality agreement/offering memoranda distributed and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated multiple offers to purchase the property, according to Slusher.
