The MemorialCare Medical Foundation has signed a 10-year lease on the retail location once occupied by Crown Ace Hardware in University Park in Irvine, according to CBRE.
Financial terms of the lease were not disclosed, but CBRE said in a statement that the foundation had signed a 9,460-square-foot lease for the retail center at 18102 Culver Drive. University Park tenants include Wholesome Choice, Rite Aid, Wells Fargo and Carl’s Jr.
Andy Nott and Austin Kanzler of CBRE represented MemorialCare. MemorialCare’s medical department provides internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, emergency care and dental care in Orange County.
“MemorialCare was not actively looking for space on the market, but when the right property became available we quickly mobilized and negotiated terms,” said Kanzler. “This transaction is indicative of increasing demand for quality retail space for medical users.”
Car wholesaler leases complex in Buena Park
According to DAUM Commercial, a two-building complex on 4.4 acres in Buena Park was leased to an unidentified automobile wholesaler.
Terms of the lease were not disclosed.
The campus at 7015 Knott Ave. includes corporate offices, a showroom and storage space at 14,019 square feet, DAUM officials said.
DAUM Commercial’s Chris Migliori represented the owner, Cal Hickel Holdings LP, and secured a six-year lease for a single tenant.
“Our client had a prime, central Southern California location with the potential to be used or adapted for a variety of uses, including storage and distribution, vehicle sales or a parking lot,” Migliori said in a statement. “…Ultimately, we identified an auto wholesale and warehousing business that saw strong value in the property’s existing facilities and a 20:1 parking ratio.”
According to a new DAUM report, the North Orange County submarket has “barely vacant rates of 1.24% in the first quarter”.
