The Boulder Group, a net leased investment brokerage firm, has completed the sale of a single tenant triple net leased Walgreens property located at 4520 Balfour Road in Brentwood, California for $7,000,000.
Walgreens is the sole occupant of the 14,490 square foot retail building that was developed in 2003. The property is located on over two acres at the southeast corner of Balfour Road and Walnut Boulevard in Brentwood, California. This signalized intersection experiences traffic volumes in excess of 30,000 vehicles per day. The property is located within an affluent area and is positioned in a strong retail corridor directly across from a Food Maxx grocery anchored center. The property is fully leased to Walgreens with fifteen years of primary lease term remaining as well as ten five-year renewal options.
Randy Blankstein and Jimmy Goodman of The Boulder Group represented the seller, a family partnership based on the West Coast, in the transaction. The buyer was a high net worth individual located in California in a 1031 exchange.
Walgreens has fifteen years of lease term remaining on an original twenty-five year lease. Walgreens is a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (WAG), with a market capitalization of $51 billion. Walgreens is an investment grade rated company with a Standard & Poor’s rating of BBB and has over 8,500 locations nationwide.
“The market for Walgreens properties remains active as investors are attracted to investment grade rated companies with long term leases” said Randy Blankstein, President of The Boulder Group. Jimmy Goodman, Partner of The Boulder Group, added, “While single tenant properties are selling in all types of locations; core markets, like San Francisco, are at the forefront of investor demand.”
