The Neema Group of Marcus and Millichap is pleased to present 701 Huntington Drive, a rare NNN retail investment opportunity located on the hard, signalized corner of Huntington Dr & Shamrock Ave in the city of Monrovia. Currently occupied by Church’s Chicken, this can be either a value-add or long-term investment opportunity; the current lease expiration is December 2024 with two ten-year options to extend. This is a passive investment as the tenant is responsible for property taxes, insurance, and expenses; current rent is $57,960 annually with fixed 1.5% annual rent increases for the remainder of the lease term as well as the option periods. Leased and guaranteed by a Church’s Chicken corporate franchisor, Cajun Realty LLC, if the tenant extends the lease, there is long-term investment opportunity with fixed increases annually to hedge against inflation. If the tenant vacates at the expiration of the lease term, there will be a great value-add opportunity to rebrand the property and secure a quality tenant at market rent.
