Cassidy Turley and Rockwood Real Estate Advisors Complete Sale of Metrocenter

Published on January 20, 2012

PHOENIX – Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial, a leading commercial real estate services provider in the U.S., announced they, working in conjunction with Rockwood Real Estate Advisors from New York, completed the sale of Metrocenter Mall.  Carlyle Development Group, a retail investment firm based in New York, purchased the two-story, super-regional mall located at 9616 N. Metro Parkway in Phoenix for $12.2 million.  The seller was a court-appointed receiver, Douglas P. Wilson of San Diego, who sold the property on behalf of a commercial mortgage-backed securities trust managed by Midland Loan Services of Overland Park, Kansas.

Built in 1973, the sale consisted of the owned portion, ±525,225 SF, of Metrocenter.  This included ±428,077 SF of in-line, kiosk, storage and food court suites and ±97,150 SF of movie theatre (Harkin’s.)

Metrocenter’s total gross leasable area of ±1,369,914 SF includes ±844,687 SF of department store space (Macy’s, Dillard’s and Sears) and outparcels pads that are individually owned and therefore were not part of the sale to Carlyle Development Group.  The mall has undergone two renovations, one in 1996 and most recently a $32 million renovation in 2007. Carlyle announced they plan to make additional investments into Metrocenter Mall.

Thomas Dobrowski with Rockwood Real Estate Advisors and Michael Hackett, Ryan Schubert, Eric Wichterman and Mike Coover with Cassidy Turley BRE Commercial’s Capital Markets Group and Executive Vice President executed the sale transaction on behalf of the seller
