A building on Sunrise Boulevard soon to be home to See’s Candies, is now on the market for $6,112,000, according to a recent listing on commercial real estate site LoopNet.

Renovation work is currently under way to make the 10,621-square-foot, two-story building a See’s Candies flagship store. See’s has a 15-year lease, according to the listing.

A sales brochure released jointly by commercial real estate firms CP Partners, Retail Pacific and Tallen Capital Partners, says the asset is 100 percent leased with a land area of just under one acre. The site is at the corner of Sunrise Boulevard and Uplands Way in the Sunrise Marketplace.

The site is located on the same block as the Sunrise Village center where redevelopment work began two years ago, according to a previous report by The Sentinel. Several new businesses have opened at the center, including a Starbucks drive-thru and Firehouse Subs.

The brochure shows a large, unnamed “grocer” occupying a suite next to Joann Fabrics. Club Studio is shown as a fitness center occupying a second anchor space in the center.

Sunrise Village remains home to Olive Garden, Wienerschnitzel, and Rite Aid. The aging property was purchased by San Francisco-based Merlone Geier in 2017, with renovation plans approved in 2020. Changes at the 15-acre plaza have included demolition of several buildings, including the former Coco’s restaurant and Benihana. Exterior facades have also been added, along with modifications to existing roof lines to modernize the center.
