Buyer pays $10M to purchase local Walgreens in Citrus Heights
The Walgreens store at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Greenback Lane has been sold for $10.41 million, according to County records and a report in the Sacramento Business Journal. Built in 2007, the 14,820 square-feet store is located on a two-acre parcel at 6199 Sunrise Blvd., with the sale price equating to just over $700 per square foot.

Although both the buyer and seller were unnamed in the Journal’s article, Sacramento County property records confirm the Walgreens store has been sold to a Newport Beach-based company called “Career Lofts Laguna Niguel, LLC.” The seller was listed as “Cordano Devco I, LLC,” which is connected to the large network of property and development companies run by the Sacramento-based Cordano family. A broker involved with the sale told The Journal the new buyer is typically a multifamily property investor, with such investors being attracted to less management commitment involved in retail leases versus multifamily. Earlier this year, the Montage multifamily apartment community in Citrus Heights sold for $74 million.
