Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services, 7 Lakes Development, Bellevue, Arlington, Amazon

September 19, 2022 (Bellevue, WA) – Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services is pleased to have brokered the acquisition of Smokey Point Plaza, a 24,794 square-foot retail center located in Arlington, WA, on behalf of their client 7 Lakes Development.

Located on 172nd Street NE in Arlington, Smokey Point Plaza was purchased for $7,165,000. The retail center consists of 13 tenants and was 100% occupied at the time of sale. Less than one mile away is Amazon’s new 2.8 million square foot distribution center, contributing to the more than 1,000 new jobs being created in the immediate area. With its mix of national and regional tenants, including Pacific Northwest-based Taco Time, the property is positioned for long-term growth.

The asset fulfills the first portion of the buyer’s 1031 exchange and permits the seller to exit after a brief holding period.

“This deal allowed the buyers to expand their real estate portfolio by acquiring a stabilized asset with a diverse tenant mix. The property offers primarily service-based retail presenting a hedge against e-commerce, and a robust nearly 30-year anchor tenant,” noted Levi Sterley, Associate at Lee & Associates Commercial Real Estate Services.

The Lee & Associates team of Ted Wood and Levi Sterley represented the Buyer in this transaction.
