SAN DIEGO – April 5, 2019 – Colliers International San Diego Region announces the sale of Cornerstone Centre, a 43,423-square foot industrial property located at 10840 Thornmint Road in San Diego’s 4S Ranch community for $8,800,000. The sale of Cornerstone Centre is the latest deal completed in a series of related 1031 tax-deferred exchange transactions valued at more than $59 million total.


Mark McEwen of Colliers International represented the seller, McEwen Entities. The buyer, Navarra Properties, was represented by David Harper of Colliers International.


“This purchase is the latest in a strong series of acquisitions by Navarra Properties as part of several 1031 tax-deferred exchange transactions,” said Mark McEwen, Senior Vice President at Colliers International. “As was the case with this 1031 purchase, we will continue seeing more property owners disposing of assets to take advantage of record pricing levels throughout this year. As a result, active and motivated 1031 tax-deferred exchange buyers will continue to be prevalent in the marketplace.”


As part of the exchange, the McEwen Entities purchased a retail and automotive service property located at 1177-1251 N Escondido Boulevard, Escondido, CA valued at $5,800,000 million. The property includes a 7-eleven and separate automotive service buildings. The McEwen Entities also purchased a mixed-use property located at 510 N Coast Highway, Oceanside, CA for $5,475,000.
