Core Retail Asset with Redevelopment Potential for Sale in Silicon Valley

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – Marcus & Millichap (NYSE: MMI), a leading commercial real estate investment services firm with offices throughout the United States and Canada, announced it has been appointed as exclusive advisor for the sale of World Savings Plaza, a 34,700-square-foot neighborhood shopping center in Mountain View, California.

“This is an opportunity for an investor to acquire an exceptional site in one of the most desirable markets in Northern California,” says Kirk Trammell, senior managing director investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Palo Alto office. “The property is the gateway to Mountain View from the adjacent cities of Los Altos and Palo Alto. It currently produces a stable income stream and there is tremendous upside to be gained by redeveloping the site with a residential, commercial, or mixed-use project.”

The call for offers date is October 12, 2017.

“More than 2,100 residential units and 1.1 million square feet of new commercial space are in the planning stages or are already under construction in the neighborhood,” notes Cutler. “The neighborhood is rapidly transforming into an urban village that will offer residents a place to work, shop, eat, and play, all within a short walking distance.”

The property is situated on 2.8 acres at the intersection of El Camino Real and San Antonio Road, less than one-half mile from the Caltrain San Antonio station. The site has excellent access and visibility; it benefits from some of the highest traffic counts in the region, with more than 67,000 vehicles passing by each day. El Camino Real is the area’s major retail thoroughfare and features many national tenants, including Target, Walmart, Safeway, Whole Foods, Kohl’s, 24 Hour Fitness, and Trader Joe’s.
