Tucson Real Estate: Southside Spectrum shopping center sold for $84M

The owner of the shopping center identified it as an unlikely candidate for growth or redevelopment, leading to its sale.

Tucson Spectrum Shopping Center at Irvington Road and Interstate 19 has been sold for $84 million.

Two years ago, its real estate investment trust owner — SITE Centers — formed Retail Value Inc. to hold and dispose of its centers without prospects for growth or redevelopment, explained Paul Schloss, associate broker with NAI Horizon.

Following the 2012 acquisition of the Tucson Spectrum for $125 million, the shopping center has now been sold to Canadian investors North American Development Group.

The sale price reflects 105% of the property’s loan amount, with the balance retained by RVI for distribution to its shareholders, Schloss said.

The 12-year-old shopping center includes over 1 million square feet of retail, including Target, Home Depot, Food City and a Harkins movie theater.

While the prior owner expanded it, since 2012 there has been little demand for expansion.
