Reno, NV, 3/7/2016 - Shopoff Realty Investments announced that the company has acquired, through a lender REO, the 186,000-square-foot Iron Horse Shopping Center, located in Sparks, NV. The transaction was brokered by Roxanne Stevenson, Senior Vice President of Retail Services at Colliers International, Reno and the Colliers International, Los Angeles office who represented the buyer.

The shopping center is located at the high traffic intersection of E. Prater Way and McCarran Blvd. It is currently 33 percent occupied with tenants including, Dollar General, Subway, Payless Shoes, Sizzler, Jack in the Box, El Pollo Loco, as well as a number of local businesses. The Save Mart that is the center's anchor was not part of the purchase.

Shopoff has committed more than one million dollars to improve and enhance the appeal of the property, strengthening the opportunity to increase overall revenue and lease-up an additional 100,000-square-foot vacant "big box" space that was included in the purchase.

"We believe this value-add acquisition provides a significant opportunity to realize outsized investment gains," said William Shopoff, Chief Executive Office of Shopoff Realty Investments. "This is an underutilized space in a growing market - an ideal combination for our experienced team of turnaround experts."

Along with serving as the procuring broker for Shopoff in the acquisition of Iron Horse, Roxanne Stevenson will also be representing them as the exclusive listing broker for the shopping center. "I am very excited to work with Shopoff Realty Investments in the revitalization of Iron Horse Shopping Center, who are highly experienced in turnaround properties such as this one," said Stevenson. "With Shopoff's dedication and experience, we are eager to bring in new tenants that will aid in the growth of the local economy."
