RN South Mountain Properties, LLC originally purchased the property in February 2012.

RN properties back-fi lled the former Mervyn’s building with a Goodwill store and a Cal Ranch Store, a 20-store ranch and home chain from Boise, Idaho. In addition, the RN properties group recently negotiated a to-be-built McDonald’s on a ground lease on the hard corner as well as a new Filiberto’s restaurant.
Built in 2007, the shopping center is nearly 80 percent occupied and has the additional 6.6 acres of excess land which is entitled for an additional 61,788 SF of building space. The entire property sits on 25.6 acres. The center is located in the dynamic Laveen area of Southwest Phoenix and is bounded by major arterial corridors such as Southern Ave., 35th Ave. and is close to Interstate 10.
