Hong Kong Investor Purchase South Hills Plaza
Our friends did an astute purchase in the hot Los Angeles market recently.
They beat 23 other purchasers to secure the purchase of the 120,589 sq ft South Hills Plaza in West Covina was acquired for a 6.8% cap rate.
Marukai Market, a Japanese food specialty store and 24 Hour Fitness anchor the centre. The parent co. of Marukai, runs more than 160 locations in Japan and Hawaii so is a secure tenant. The community centre has a well established trading population since it was built in 1982. Well done!
