Santa Ana, CA – June 14, 2016 – On June 9, 2016, Red Mountain Group, Inc. completed the simultaneous acquisition and disposition of four properties in one day valued at over $47,200,000.
These transactions were part of Red Mountain Group’s strategic plan to replace assets in the competitive grocery anchored segment with urban in-fill re-development opportunities. In this case, Red Mountain Group sold Copperwood Square Shopping Center, a 123,390 SF retail center in Citrus Heights, California, anchored by FoodMaxx, Planet Fitness, Dollar Tree and Hometown Buffet and purchased 240 N. Brand Blvd, a 63,000 SF building located in Glendale, on the southeast corner of Brand Blvd and California Avenue. This property is a vertically oriented and strategically located at ‘ground zero’ in the heart of downtown Glendale – an exciting, vibrant urban center with excellent shopping, dining, working, living and entertainment opportunities all within walking distance. In addition, Red Mountain Group also purchased an existing 37,606 SF retail center in Memphis, TN and a restaurant pad in Phoenix, AZ.
Red Mountain Group also has another property in Glendale in escrow located on the southwest corner of Central Avenue & Salem Street – the site of Clancy’s Crab Boiler. The prime located site is only three blocks north of the Americana at Brand. Red Mountain Group is considering all possibilities to re-develop both sites, including multi-story office buildings with ground retail or mixed-use hotel/residences. For leasing information on either Glendale property, please contact Kristin Ambrose at 714-460-1564.
“The complexity of completing these transactions in one day is a testament to the depth and quality of our in-house Finance and Acquisitions/Dispositions team. We are very excited to be part of acquiring such core real estate in Glendale’s vibrant urban downtown community. We look forward to reaching out to the city and community to explore what’s possible with the purchase of these two key assets.” – Michael H. Mugel, CEO and Founder of Red Mountain Group
