SAN DIEGO, Sept. 22, 2014 – JLL’s Capital Markets today announced Mission Equities Real Estate, Inc. has sold Palomar Place to a partnership formed by Hannay Realty Advisors and MDC Realty Advisors USA for $15 million. The property, a 15,317-square-foot neighborhood retail center in the San Diego submarket of Carlsbad, California, is located along the Pacific coast at 961 and 965 Palomar Airport Road. 

JLL Managing Directors Bob Prendergast and Lynn LaChapelle led the transaction for the team, along with Craig Killman, West Coast Retail Market Lead, and Vice President Bryan Cunningham.
“Palomar Place represents our vision to create a best-in-class retail center befitting its tenants, customers, neighbors and the community as a whole,” said Nick Foussianes, President of Mission Equities Real Estate, Inc. “We are extremely proud of its success and of the team that worked together to make it a reality.” 
Palomar Place is fully leased to a predominantly national tenant base.

Craig Hannay, President of Hannay Realty Advisors, stated, “We are delighted with our acquisition of Palomar Place. This is a brand new Class A asset that is an excellent addition to our growing California portfolio.”

JLL research show that retail vacancy stands at just three percent in Carlsbad, as compared to 4.4 percent throughout San Diego County. Average asking retail rent for Carlsbad during the second quarter of this month was $29.42, compared to the San Diego County average of $22.34.

“Palomar Place is an unusual investment opportunity; a new, premium retail center that’s fully leased by high-quality tenants in a coastal location with barriers to entry for new development,” said Prendergast.
