CBRE Completes $2.79M Sale of Rustic Hills Marketplace
CBRE announced the $2.79 million sale of Rustic Hills Marketplace, a multi-tenant retail center located at 1330-1360 North Academy Boulevard in Colorado Springs. Brad Lyons, Matthew Henrichs and Parker Brown with CBRE Capital Markets, National Retail Partners in Denver, represented the seller, Madison Realty Investors of Denver. The buyer, a private capital investor out of Colorado Springs, purchased the property as part of a 1031 exchange.
“We continue to see strong demand for small format retail centers in growing markets like Colorado Springs, where investors understand they can achieve a greater return than they otherwise might,” said Brown. “While Rustic Hills Marketplace provided reliable in-place cash flows from the existing tenants, the investor was also interested in this property because of the opportunity to generate additional rental revenue and ancillary revenue, thus increasing its NOI and cash flow.”
Rustic Hills Marketplace was approximately 89 percent leased at the time of sale. Built in 1985, the retail center consists of two adjoining buildings that together total 38,275 rentable square feet on a 2.9-acre parcel of land. Current tenants represent a mix of national and local retailers, including Aaron’s, Inc., The Camp Transformation Center, Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Flavor Monster Vape Shop, Capri Fitness Studio and Muse Comics & Games. The property is located along Academy Boulevard, one of Colorado Springs’ most heavily trafficked north-south arterials with an average daily traffic volume in excess of 60,000 vehicles.
Andrew Evans of Madison Realty Investors stated, “After several years renovating, repositioning, and re-tenanting the entire asset, we successfully transformed a struggling property and created a stable, durable and performing asset. We are pleased and impressed by the results and execution provided by CBRE and their entire team.”
