CBRE has completed the sale of a twenty-four property gas station and convenience store portfolio for properties in Tucson and southern Arizona. The portfolio commanded a sale price of $39.75 million.
Pete Villaescusa and Jesse Peron in CBRE’s Tucson office represented the seller, Reay’s Ranch Investors, LLC of Tucson. The buyer was a national REIT, American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP).
Of the 24 convenience store locations, eight are in the Tucson area, and the rest are located throughout Southern Arizona. Under a new master lease agreement between ARCP and El Paso, Texas-based Western Refining, the stores will be rebranded and operate under the “Giant” moniker. In addition to the twenty four sale properties, another seven locations were leased to Western Refining for a total of thirty one new locations for their company to operate.
This sale was the culmination of tremendous efforts and cooperation between the Reay’s Ranch group, ARCP, and Western Refining,” said CBRE’s Villaescusa. “It was a very complex deal involving operating businesses, fuel supply agreements, some fee owned and some leasehold real estate, and existing inventory and employees. It will provide Western Refining with more retail outlets for their product and reward the Reay’s group for building a successful business over their operating history.”
