New-Construction Starbucks Drive-Thru Sells to 1031 Buyer

Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors arranged the sale of a new construction, single-tenant Starbucks Drive-Thru in Fresno for $3.18 million. The property is located less than five minutes from California State University, Fresno

EVPs Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko represented the seller and developer, Laguna Canyon Group, based in Orange County. The buyer, a private investor based in Fresno, was represented by Patrick Conway with CBRE in Glendale, California. 

“We generated multiple qualified offers and procured a local, all-cash, 1031 exchange buyer who lives in close proximity to the property,” said Asher. “We structured a timely three-week contingency period and scheduled the close of escrow upon Starbucks’ formal rent commencement.” 

Connect Orange County will take place Sept. 27, 2023 at VEA | Newport Beach Marriott in Newport Beach, concurrently with Connect Healthcare Real Estate on Sept. 27 and 28. Click here to register for Connect Orange County, and here to register for Connect Healthcare Real Estate.
