NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Oct. 26, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $6.58 million sale of a 15,120-square-foot, single-tenant retail building triple net leased to Walgreens in the Los Angeles County community of Whitter, California.

JLL marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Walwit LLC, a family trust. A private investor acquired the asset in an all-cash transaction. 

A leader in the pharmacy, health and beauty sector, Walgreens is a subsidiary of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc., which has a BBB (S&P) credit rating. The building is situated on 2.11 acres at 8201 Greenleaf Ave. in Whittier’s major retail trade area, and Walgreens has occupied the property since it was constructed in 2001, providing a recession-resistant tenancy for the new owner.

Whittier is an upscale community nearly 18 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles, and its strong demographics are favorable for a Walgreens retail location. There are 452,748 residents who earn an average annual household income of $118,977 within a three-mile radius of the property. Additionally, daily traffic counts at this location exceed 53,000 vehicles per day, and the property has three points of access.

The JLL Retail Capital Markets team representing the buyer was led by Director Daniel Tyner and Managing Director Gleb Lvovich.

“The sale of Walgreens in Whittier represents the third triple-net-leased drug store property we have closed in the last 30 days,” Tyner said. “The market demand remains as strong as we’ve seen in recent years for these types of properties, and we expect that to continue into 2022.”
