NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 24, 2022 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $9.45 million sale of Galleria Vera Cruz, a 28,451-square-foot, value-add retail strip center in the northern San Diego-area community of San Marcos, California.

JLL and Retail Insite marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Galleria Vera Cruz, L.P. A private buyer acquired the asset.

Originally constructed in 1986, Galleria Vera Cruz is 95.33 percent leased to a mix of local food, health and beauty and financial services tenants, including Kumon, Darunee Thai Cuisine, iTan, Filipino Depot, Inland Tavern and more.

Galleria Vera Cruz is situated on 2.16 acres at 1001-1003 W. San Marcos Blvd. at the highly visible intersection of San Marcos Boulevard and Via Vera Cruz, which is seen by approximately 41,200 vehicles per day. This easily accessible position along one of the main thoroughfares in San Marcos and within a top retail corridor in the North San Diego submarket is less than a mile from SR-78 and Interstate 15. The property serves a growing trade area with more than 96,150 residents within a three-mile radius, which is expected to increase nearly five percent to 100,871 by 2026.

Representing the seller was the JLL team, led by Senior Director Daniel Tyner and Managing Director Gleb Lvovich, and Retail Insite, led by Mike Moser.

“The sale of Galleria Vera Cruz further proves the strong demand for infill located strip centers in Southern California,” Tyner said. “The relatively low in-place rents compared to the nearby submarket provided an attractive opportunity to investors, which resulted in us receiving multiple offers on the sale.”
