WALNUT CREEK, Calif., April 8, 2014—X Team International, an international alliance of retail real estate advisors with expertise in more than 45 major markets throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe, announced that partner John Cumbelich & Associates, a San Francisco Bay Area-based commercial real estate firm, represented both buyer and seller in the recent sale of 1280 Willow Pass, a 73,167-square-foot shopping center in Concord, Calif. Firm Principal John Cumbelich made the announcement.
“1280 Willow Pass is a tremendous property, both due to its proximity to the adjacent Sun Valley regional mall, and by virtue of a new long-term anchor tenant lease,” said Cumbelich. “It was no surprise that multiple offers were secured for this shopping center, and we are confident that both the buyer and seller were pleased with the result.”
The shopping center on Willow Pass will be home to a new, 57,000-square-foot Hobby Lobby store—one of the chain’s first stores in Northern California. Cumbelich also represented the seller in securing the Hobby Lobby lease, and achieving 100 percent occupancy, prior to marketing the property for sale.
