“We continue to focus on opportunities in multi-tenant retail, and these properties fit our disciplined acquisition strategy targeting core retail centers leased to nationally recognized, creditworthy tenants under long-term leases,” said Scott Holmes, vice president of multi-tenant retail acquisitions for Cole. “These are well-located centers in the western United States, with strong demographics, and they serve as primary retail destinations within their respective trade areas.”
