This is the first retail acquisition since 2008 for Decron, which owns and manages approximately 600,000-square feet of additional retail assets and nearly 10,000 multifamily units in California, Washington, and Arizona.

"We saw this as an opportunity to add a marquee retail asset to our growing San Diego portfolio," said Decron CEO David Nagel. "Only a few years ago it was assumed that brick and mortar retail would be taken over by e-commerce. While there is still strong demand for online shopping, we are seeing a rise in people still wanting the in-store experience and the market/drug anchor line up sets the tone for a daily/weekly visit to the center, helping drive sales for all the tenants in this major regional shopping center."
