Lee & Associates Negotiates 10-Year Retail Lease to HomeGoods

Lee & Associates, one of the largest broker-owned commercial real estate firms in the country, has negotiated a 10-year, $3.4 million retail lease at Irish Hills Plaza in San Luis Obispo.

Clarice Clarke and Steve Leider of Lee & Associates Santa Barbara represented the landlord, Irish Hills Plaza West LLC. The new tenant, HomeGoods, a retail chain with stores all over the country, will replace existing tenant OfficeMax in the 20,059-square-foot premises.

“The tenant was thrilled with the co-tenancy at this community retail hub,” said Clarke, president of Lee & Associates Santa Barbara. “The property is surrounded by a diverse mix of retailers, making it an attractive location for any retail tenant. Pair this with a central location with access to major highways and downtown San Luis Obispo, the deal offers tremendous upside for the tenant.”

Located at 1530 Froom Ranch Way, the shopping plaza hosts numerous well-known retail brands such as Costco, Home Depot, PetSmart, BevMo!, New Frontiers Market and T.J. Maxx, which is also owned by the same company as HomeGoods.

OfficeMax is slated to close its doors sometime around the new year, with HomeGoods expected to open in spring 2014.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
