The note on the first two phases of Monte Vista Crossings, a retail shopping center in Turlock, Calif., has sold for approximately $44 million.

Dennis Williams, managing director in the San Francisco office of NorthMarq Capital, arranged the sale on behalf of its correspondent lender, Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America.

The 298,971 sq. ft. Monte Vista Crossings is at the intersection of Highway 99 and West Monte Vista Avenue. Major tenants are Ross Dress for Less, BevMo, T.J. Maxx, OfficeMax, Pier 1 Imports, and Bed Bath & Beyond. The note sale excludes some anchor tenants on the site, including Safeway, Home Depot, Target, Lowe’s and Kohl’s.
