Unique retail building sells in stable trade area

Starbucks recently opened a new free-standing unit with a drive-thru at the hard southeast corner of the intersection with Smash Burger.

Judi Butterworth and Lacey Eyman of ORION Investment Real Estate facilitated the sale. Butterworth said, “Village at Superstition Springs is a beautiful property in a unique setting among lakes and a golf course. It was a perfect acquisition for an out-of-state buyer looking for a stable asset.” Butterworth just closed an office building sale in Scottsdale.

Butterworth and Eyman recently sold a center at Guadalupe Road and Recker Road in Gilbert, and have several other retail sales in escrow at this time.
