The medical facility will replace the Fresh & Easy market

Principals Dan Bacani and Jodi Shoemake of Lee & Associates Pasadena represented the landlord, Highlander Center, LLC. While a sales tax revenue generator such as a replacement grocery store would have been preferred by many at city hall as well as the landlord, the reality of the commercial real estate market across the country as it relates to big box retail forced everyone involved to reconsider.
“We provided our client and the city with information regarding the challenges big box users are currently facing and the market trends toward medical operators and experiential retailers replacing traditional tenants,” said Ms. Shoemake. “At the end of the day, a medical tenant is a use that will benefit the community.”
