HFF announces $43.55M sale and $32.325M financing of grocery-anchored shopping center in Kapaa, Hawaii


NEWPORT BEACH, CA – November 28, 2017 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announces the $43.55 million sale of and the $32.325 million acquisition financing for Kauai Village, a 109,466-square-foot, grocery-anchored community shopping center in Kapaa, Hawaii, on the island of Kauai.

The HFF team marketed the property on behalf of the seller, ValueRock Realty Partners.  Austin, Texas-based Epic Real Estate Partners purchased the asset free and clear of existing debt.  Additionally, working on behalf of the new owner, the HFF team placed the three-year, floating-rate loan with a life company.

Kauai Village is 81.2 percent leased and home to Safeway, Ross Dress for Less, Panda Express, Starbucks, ABC Stores, and more.  Completed in 1989, the center underwent renovations to the anchor space in 2014 and renovated and expanded select tenant space in 2017.  The center is situated on 8.23 acres at 4-831 Kuhio Highway in Kapaa, the largest city in Kauai.  Kauai Village is adjacent to several resorts and timeshares and is located in one of the most heavily trafficked sections of Kauai along Kuhio Highway with nearly 30,000 vehicles per day.

The HFF retail investment advisory team representing the seller included Gleb Lvovich.

The HFF debt placement team representing the new owner consisted of Kyle Spencer and John Chun.

“We are thrilled to continue to grow our market share on the Hawaiian Islands with the sale of Kauai Village,” Lvovich said.  “In addition to generating local investor interest, our team was able to generate activity from mainland U.S. investors, ultimately bringing a new investor from the U.S. mainland to Hawaii for their first acquisition. This is the second new investor our team has sourced to acquire retail real estate in Hawaii in the past 18 months, complementing our recent sale of Lahaina Cannery Mall for $64.75 million in Maui.”
