CBRE's Philip D. Voorhees and NRP-West Team Complete Sale of Bristol Center Across from South Coast Plaza for $46.5 Million

SANTA ANA, Calif. – CBRE Executive Vice President Philip D. Voorhees announced today that the National Retail Partners-West (NRP-West) completed the sale of Bristol Center in Orange County, California, a community center, 97% leased to high performing, national and regional credit tenants including CVS/pharmacy, Michaels, Staples, Party City, Wells Fargo, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chick-fil-A, Chipotle and Firestone Auto Care, among others. The purchase price was $46.46 million. 

CBRE retail experts Preston Fetrow, Kirk Brummer, Megan Wood, Sean Heitzler and Voorhees represented the seller, Sarofim Realty Advisors, a Dallas-based investment advisor. The buyer, also represented by the NRP-West team, was JH Real Estate Partners, an Orange County-based real estate investment company who purchased the property as an addition to its portfolio.

Built in 1974, Bristol Center is a 165,508-square-foot community shopping center, situated on 14.18 acres of leased-fee land at 3601-3825 S. Bristol Street in Santa Ana, directly across from South Coast Plaza.

“Many of the best retail properties are on leased land due to their exceptional location,” said Voorhees. “With proximity to world-renowned South Coast Plaza, Bristol Center demonstrates that best-in-class community centers in premier locations like Orange County continue to generate strong investor demand.”

“The property’s ideal Bristol Street location across from South Coast Plaza, strong historical occupancy, improving tenancy and upward trending rents in this highly dense and affluent trade area make it a very attractive acquisition for the buyer,” Brummer noted.

According to Heitzler, CBRE’s marketing efforts produced more than 376 confidentiality agreement/offering memoranda distributed and through the team’s “managed bid” offer process, generated multiple offers to purchase the property.

With this closing, CBRE's NRP-West team topped $10.4 billion in successfully closed retail investment sale transactions.
