Valley Plaza Shopping Center. Sacramento CA.

Structured Lease Agreement. This 165,000 sf Community center owned by Weingarten REIT suffered from a vacant grocery anchor building. As consultants, we devised a plan to re-tenant the anchor space with a value based grocery chain. We secured a 54,000 sf Food 4 Less tenancy operated by PAQ, Inc after the past leasing agent had listed the property for 5 years without success. Our focused approach at solving the owner problem is leading to a sale assignment when the store is completed.
