NEWPORT BEACH, CALIF. Marinita Development Company, a developer, builder and manager of retail, residential and industrial properties based in Newport Beach, Calif., announced that the company is 85 percent pre-leased on one of its latest project, a 26,400-square-foot retail convenience center in the City of Riverside, Calif., and has commenced construction. The development, known as Orangewood Centre, is located on a signalized intersection at the northeast corner of Van Buren Boulevard and Dauchy Avenue in the Orangecrest master plan area and is expected to open in the summer 2008.
Situated on 2.7 acres, Orangewood Centre will consist of a total of four new buildings ranging in size from 6,000 to 8,100 square feet. Tenants include Firestone Tire (8,100 sq. ft.), Kragen Auto Parts (6,000 sq. ft.), 7 Eleven (2,400 sq. ft.), Subway (1,100 sq. ft.), Sips Coffee (1,700 sq. ft.), a dry cleaner (1,300 sq. ft.), and a nail salon (1,200 sq. ft.).
This is a great location in an underserved market for retail, said J. Scott Fawcett, president of Marinita Development Co. Orangewood Centre offers convenient access, great demographics and impressive traffic counts, and high visibility. We are very excited about this project and have received a great response from the community and the retail industry.
We only have four inline spaces remaining, ranging in size from 1,000 to 1,300 square feet, noted Fawcett. We certainly have not experienced any decrease in demand for retail space at our projects.
Marinita Development currently has eight projects in various planning stages with a total of three retail projects under construction. In addition to Orangewood Centre, Marinita has a project in Indio, Calif. under construction as well as a supermarket/drug store anchored shopping center in Corona.
Orangewood Centres architecture is best described as Contemporary Craftsman and was designed by Nadel Retail Architects, LLP of Costa Mesa, Calif. The general contractor is Moorefield Construction of Los Angeles, Calif. Funding for the project was arranged by Jeff Randolph of Avalon Financial Group Inc. of Irvine, Calif. from Vineyard Bank. Lee & Associates of Riverside is leasing and marketing the center. Jeff Stanley, Nick Wirick and Kathleen Hunt are the leasing agents.
