$16.9M FOR CENTER IN SIMI
In another large retail property sale, the Smart & Final-anchored mall in Simi Valley has changed hands for $16.9 million, or about $170 per square foot. Milan Capital Management of Anaheim purchased the 99,662-square-foot shopping center.
Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services represented both buyer and seller in the deal. The firm also arranged interim refinancing of the seller’s existing conduit debt with a $7.5 million flexible bridge loan that permitted repayment without penalty, according to a press release. That mortgage was retired at closing with a new loan arranged by Milan Capital, providing leverage and construction money. The new owner is planning a complete renovation that includes an expansion as well as an extension of Smart & Final’s lease.
