The Boulder Group Arranges Sale of a Net Leased Chipotle Property in Milwaukee

The Boulder Group, a net leased investment brokerage firm, has completed the sale of a single tenant net leased Chipotle property located at 3232 South 27th Street in Milwaukee, WI for $1,824,000.

Chipotle is the sole occupant of the 2,295 square foot retail building that was awarded the Mayor’s Design Award for its outstanding architecture. The property is located along South 27th Street, a heavily trafficked north-south thoroughfare approximately five miles southwest of downtown Milwaukee. South 27th Street experiences traffic counts in excess of 31,000 vehicles per day. The property is located within a densely populated area with over 400,000 people living within five miles. A Walmart Supercenter and Walgreens anchored development is located across the street from the property. There are approximately 10 years remaining on the Chipotle lease that was recently extended.

Randy Blankstein and Jimmy Goodman of The Boulder Group represented the seller, a private investor based in Chicago. The buyer was an investor in a 1031 exchange from California.

Chipotle has approximately 10 years remaining on their net lease that was recently extended. The lease features a 12.5% rental escalation in the primary term and renewal option period. Chipotle is a publicly traded company (NYSE: CMG) with a market capitalization in excess of $16 billion.

“The market for net lease properties in Top 50 MSAs remains robust as these assets are in high demand among private investors.” said Randy Blankstein, President of The Boulder Group.  Jimmy Goodman, Partner of The Boulder Group, added, “Properties with rental escalations throughout the lease term are at the forefront of investor demand because they provide investors with an inflationary hedge.”
