NEWPORT BEACH, December 20, 2019 – JLL announced today that it has arranged $19.6 million in acquisition financing for Fairmont Shopping Center, a 102,982-square-foot, coastal, shopping center anchored by Safeway in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Pacifica, California.

JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, GRI Fairmont, LLC, an affiliate of First Washington Realty, Inc., to place the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with PGIM Real Estate Finance.

Anchored by a high-performing Safeway, the 96%-leased Fairmont Shopping Center is also home to an internet-resistant tenant lineup, including Rite Aid, Dollar Tree, Supercuts, Banfield Pet Hospital, American Sushi House, Starbucks, Southland Nails, Ernie’s Wine & Liquor and Rockway Beach Optometry. Completed in 1966, the retail center was remodeled in 2015 and 2018. Fairmont Shopping Center is situated on 7.46 acres at 705-799 Hickey Boulevard in Pacifica, a coastal community between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay. It is at the high-traffic intersection of Hickey and Skyline Boulevards, where it is visible to approximately 45,860 vehicles per day. Less than half a mile south of the Pacific Coast Highway, the retail center is in a growing trade area with an anticipated population increase of 4.2% over the next five years, and more than 163,953 residents earning an average annual household income of $134,610 live within a three-mile radius of the property.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the borrower was led by Managing Director Greg Brown, Director John Marshall and Director Bercut Smith.

“JLL was able to negotiate attractive loan terms and found the ideal lender for this asset,” said Daniel Radek, President of First Washington Realty. “The transaction went very smoothly, and we could not be more pleased with the outcome.”
