Rancho Cucamonga, CA – April 4, 2016 – Progressive Real Estate Partners, a leading Inland Empire retail real estate brokerage, announced today the sale of Bluffs Crossing, a 6,167 square-foot multi-tenant retail center located at 1231 E. Washington Street in Colton, CA. The property sold for $1.9 million ($323 psf) at a cap rate of 5.1% in a 1031 exchange transaction. The center is ideally located directly adjacent to the heavily traveled I-215 freeway and Washington Street with a combined average traffic count of approximately 350,000 cars per day.

Progressive Real Estate Partners retail investment sales expert Greg Bedell exclusively marketed the property and represented the seller, a private investor based in Sherman Oaks, CA. Fred Furey, an independent Huntington Beach based broker, represented the buyer, a private investor based in Chino Hills, CA.

Built in 2007, Bluffs Crossing is conveniently located in the retail hub of Colton in a well-established trade area. The center is home to a mix of food and service users including Premier Insurance, U-Haul, a Verizon cell tower and newcomer Pizza Q, the first restaurant in the area to combine pizza and slow-cooked BBQ under one roof. A top performing Starbucks drive-thru and Dunn Edwards are located immediately adjacent to the center. Other neighboring national retailers include Wal Mart, Ashley Furniture, Ross Dress for Less, McDonalds and Carl’s Jr creating a strong regional draw and cross-shopping benefit to the property. In addition to the excellent freeway visibility, the tenants also enjoy prominent freeway pylon signage and strong demographics with a population in excess of 190,000 people within a 10 minute drive.

“Bluffs Crossing’s superb freeway visibility combined with the center’s newer construction, diverse tenant mix and excellent regional location within Colton’s retail hub made it a very attractive acquisition for the buyer,” according to Greg Bedell, Investment Sales Specialist. He added “In order to best position the center for sale, Progressive also helped with the lease-up by attracting Pizza Q to the property, thus adding a significant amount of value.”
