Hanley Arranges Sale of Newly Built Chipotle at Record-Low Cap Rate

Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors completed the sale of a new construction single-tenant Chipotle Mexican Grill property in the Quad District of Sacramento’s North Natomas area. The sale price for the new Chipotle property was $4.95 million, representing the highest price per square foot sale of a single-tenant Chipotle drive-thru nationwide this year.

EVPs Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko at Hanley represented developer Chase Partners. The buyer, a private Los Angeles-based investor, was represented by Jenny Eng from CBRE’s Glendale office.

Asher said, “We generated multiple offers within the initial weeks of marketing, leading us to secure a 1031 exchange buyer based in Southern California. We procured the buyer while the building was under construction and closed escrow the day Chipotle opened for business.”

He noted the closing cap rate was a record low for a single-tenant Chipotle sale in California in 2023, and one of the year’s lowest cap rate sales for a single-tenant Chipotle nationwide.
