SKT Investments bought Crossroads Marketplace, a 539,270-square-foot retail center in Chino Hills, Calif., from CRCH, LLC for $79 million. The property houses PetSmart, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Steinmart, Sport Chalet and CVS Pharmacy. The buyer assumed an existing CMBS loan on the center. CB Richard Ellis' National Retail Investment Group-West represented the seller in the transaction. The CMBS loan was interest only. The sale closed at a cap rate of 5.87 percent.

"This sale demonstrates CBRE's ability to reach 'one-of-a-kind' private buyers that are intermittently in the market," said Philip D. Voorhees, of CBRE, in a statement. Voorhees, together with Todd Goodman and Kirk Brummer, brokered the deal. "Database-driven, cooperative marketing uncovered a broker representing a foreign investor with an immediate requirement for a large, high quality center. Compared with portfolio sales, selling properties individually continues to yield the highest pricing and greatest surety of closing for sellers."

There are approximately 361,831 people living within a five-mile radius of the property, with the average household income of $83,451 a year.
