Axiom Retail Advisors, an Irvine-based retail brokerage and consulting firm and X Team Retail Advisor platform member, arranged a 15,000-square-foot retail lease for DSW, Inc. in the 75,000-square-foot Lincoln & Rose Shopping Center located at 201 Lincoln Blvd. in Venice. The tenant will occupy a space formerly leased to 99 Cents Only in the Whole Foods-anchored shopping center
Stephanie Skrbin and Lea Clay Park of Axiom, along with managing director Bryan Norcott at Newmark, represented the landlord, Combined Properties. Nadia Gilmore, SVP of Leasing at Combined Properties, negotiated the lease transaction on behalf of ownership. Tom Gyulay of Sage Retail Group represented DSW.
“DSW was looking for a long-term home in the Venice area where they can re-invest and continue to support their loyal customer base,” said Park. “The new location, adjacent to an incredibly successful Whole Foods, was a great fit.”
This transaction is one in a string of wins for the Skrbin/Park team on the west side of Los Angeles, where they are expanding their presence.
