The Rainier Cos. has sold a 27-property retail portfolio spread across eight states in the Central U.S., with 14 of the assets situated in Texas. A CBRE team facilitated the transaction.

The remaining properties are located in Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming. The portfolio encompasses some 678,000 square feet of space with a combined occupancy rate of 92 percent. Furthermore, the properties have performed at above 90 percent occupancy for more than 20 years.

The average rent for the portfolio is $6.25 per square foot, with 19 of the assets being single-tenant and the rest being multi-tenant, housing no more than three tenants. The roster consists of a mix of stable businesses including:

  • six grocery stores
  • five home improvement stores
  • three auto parts stores
  • three fitness centers
  • three dollar stores
  • two U.S. Post Offices
  • one pharmacy
  • one gas station

First Vice President Michael Austry and Senior Vice President Jared Aubrey from CBRE worked on behalf of the seller. According to Aubrey, the challenge with selling such a large portfolio was in finding a way for investors to unlock value and increase returns on the assets. Recently, another CBRE team arranged the sale of Crystal Falls Town Center, a 94,820-square-foot Class A, grocery-anchored retail facility in Leander, Texas.
