NEWPORT BEACH, CA – May 6, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — Mark Lucescu, President of LUCESCU REALTY, a market leading investment real estate services firm, announced today the sale of Deer Springs Town Center Shopping Center in the City of Las Vegas, Nevada for $50.5 million. Deer Springs Town Center was developed by Regency Centers Corporation (NYSE:REG), a preeminent national owner, operator, and developer of dominant grocery-anchored and community shopping centers. Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, Regency is a real estate investment trust with a portfolio encompassing 46.3 million square feet.
LUCESCU REALTY represented the interests of the seller and procured the buyer, Stoltz Real Estate Partners. Headquartered in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, Stoltz Real Estate Partners is an established manager of private real estate equity funds that owns and manages approximately 9.5 million square feet of retail, office, residential, mixed use, industrial, and land assets nationwide.
Deer Springs Town Center is a 512,325-square-foot community shopping center, anchored by Target, Home Depot, Toys ‘R’ Us, Babies ‘R’ Us, Ross Dress for Less, PetSmart, Staples and Michaels. Target, which totaled approximately 143,160 square feet, was tenant owned and not a part of the sale. Home Depot, Toys ‘R’ Us, Babies ‘R’ Us, Ross Dress for Less, PetSmart, Staples and Michaels occupy approximately 86 percent of the gross leasable area that was conveyed. The blue-chip tenant roster also included AT&T, In-N-Out, Pacific Dental, Nevada Federal Credit Union, Verizon Wireless and State Farm Insurance. Also included in the sale were 12 graded, land parcels entitled for 223,000 square feet of additional GLA.
“It’s an institutional quality piece of real estate, built by one of the premier real estate investment and development companies in the U.S.,” noted Lucescu. “For decades Regency has been building centers of the highest quality in the top markets in the country and this property is no exception,” Lucescu further commented. “Regency did a great job assembling the land, lining these tenants up and built a great center. Stoltz should do well with this acquisition as they continue their pursuit of high quality commercial real estate assets throughout the Las Vegas Valley.”
Built in 2009, Deer Springs Town Center is situated on a 62-acre parcel, at the southeast quadrant of the Interstate 215 Beltway and 5th Street. There are over 17,000 residential units planned within a 2-mile radius of the property. The average household income within a 5-mile radius is $72,727.
According to Lucescu in discussing the latest market trends, “We expect both core and opportunistic offerings to continue to garner very high investor demand due to the dearth of available inventory and the surplus of capital pursuing these types of offerings. In addition we anticipate both Las Vegas, NV and Phoenix, AZ to continue to lead the recovering markets in the western U.S.”
