Milan Capital Management sells Camarillo Village Square, a 242,000-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center, for $83,595,000.

Milan Capital Management is very pleased to announce the sale of Camarillo Village Square, a 242,000-square-foot grocery-anchored shopping center, for $83,595,000. This was a TEXTBOOK "buy and flip" Investment case.
We originally acquired this center in
May of 2021, in the midst of the pandemic, for $61,000,000 at around 87% occupancy. 22% of the square footage here was leased by either restaurant or fitness tenants, nearly all of whom were on COVID relief, and most of the investment community was scared to make any big bets on retail at the time. We were able to bring nearly all of those tenants back to paying full, contractual rent by Q4 2021, exactly in line with our underwriting. 


Within the first 6 months of ownership, we executed the sale of a Starbucks/Urgent care pad at a 4.35% cap, and $1,043/foot, reducing our basis by about $4.875M. 


For years, Rite Aid had been occupying a larger than a prototypical box of around 24,000 square feet, and at acquisition, we took over the relocation of this tenant to a 14,000-square-foot box adjacent to Sprouts Farmers Market. Following the relocation, we backfilled Rite Aid’s space with a turn-key built Ross, delivered on time and on budget, bringing the center to around 93% occupancy and adding substantial credit to the asset. 

Additionally, we were able to lease what we considered the most "un-leasable" portion of the center to ACE Hardware, and filled nearly all of the final few shop spaces with strong local operators, bringing the center to nearly 100% occupancy in less than 2 years, and increasing the net operating income of the property by 33%. We also worked diligently to extend the leases of many of the larger credit tenants at the property, bringing the weighted average lease term of the asset to more than 7 years. 


The property was sold on February 10 to an exchange buyer who recognized the value that we had created and appreciated the stability of the asset, as well as its potential for long-term appreciation through a parcelization strategy that we were implementing. The new buyer will be retaining Milan Capital Management as the property manager.  


On a project level, we achieved a 38% IRR. 


We'd like to thank our preferred equity partner, Peaceable Street Capital (, our lender, Prime Finance, all of our high-net-worth equity investors who trusted us with their hard-earned money, and of course El Warner's team at Colliers who worked on this deal both at acquisition and at disposition, “from the cradle to the grave”, if you will.
