SRS Real Estate Partners NNLG Completes $24 Million Sale to Buchanan Street Partners of Flex/Showroom Retail Center

Newport Beach, CA (March 15, 2021) – Buchanan Street Partners has completed the $24 million acquisition of E405 Euclid Shops, a 91,517-square-foot flex/showroom retail center located at 18225 to 18349 Euclid Street in Fountain Valley, CA (north Orange County). Situated on 4.9 acres, the highly-visible center includes tenants: Sherwin-Williams, Guitar Center, and Cort Furniture, among others.

SRS National Net Lease Group’s Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther, and Executive Vice President Rich Walter, represented the buyer, Newport Beach-based Buchanan Street Partners as well as the seller and original developer, a Southern California-based family trust. 

The property is located in Fountain Valley and has more than 670,000 residents and 350,000 employees within a five-mile radius. The center offers easy access to the 405 freeway and features a 70-foot pylon sign directly visible from the freeway.

Buchanan Street was attracted to E405’s strong infill location and excellent visibility along the 405 freeway.

“E405 is irreplaceable real estate that rarely comes to market,” said Matt Haugen, vice president, Buchanan Street Partners. “These buildings provide us with multiple investment strategies due to the product type, location and visibility.”

“E405 was a significant, multi-tenant retail center sale and is one of the few transactions of its type in Orange County since the onset of the pandemic,” said Mousavi. “We received significant buyer interest on this property.” Mousavi added, “Buchanan Street presented a solid offer. Additionally, the company has a strategic business plan for the asset that will add value over the coming months and years.”

In July 2020, Mousavi and Luther executed the $9.182 million sale of VCA Animal Hospital which is adjacent to E405 Euclid Shops and was the first phase of a break-up strategy SRS executed. The 23,800-square-foot property is at 18300 Euclid Street closed at a cap rate 4.75 percent.
