Staff | September 28, 2010

CB Richard Ellis' San Diego Central office says that six leases totaling 30,460 square feet with a combined consideration of $9.8 million have been signed for Komar Desert Center in La Quinta.

Developed by Komar Desert Properties LLC, the 300,000-square-foot, Costco-anchored shopping center is scheduled for overall completion in late 2008.

Located on 24 acres at the Jefferson Street and Highway 111 intersection, Komar Desert Center's conceptual site plan was developed by San Diego-based SGPA Architecture and Planning and will offer shop and anchor tenant locations ranging from 1,500 to 20,000 square feet. All of the free-standing pads are leased.

The retail and food buildings were completed and turned over to tenants for interior build-out in mid-May with the Beverages & More shell building ready for tenant build-out at the end of June. Mimi's shell building is to be completed by the end of July with tentative opening scheduled for September, and Souplantation completion is scheduled for November. Costco opened in November 2006.
