able to lease up the center’s single
vacancy and also sees upside in
adjusting some of the rents tomar-
ket rates, he said.
Wagner said the property has
a good tenant mix that Western
Centers hopes to maintain, and
the company will make improve-
ments to the property as needed.
Some of the tenants have been in
the center since it was developed
in 1987.
Kluck, who handled the sale
with CBRE’s Matt Henrichs, said
within a week of being listed, the
property received several offers,
and it was under contract within
two weeks.
The five buildings at 1310, 1330,
1350, 1370 and 1390 S. Parker
Road comprise a rare property
type in Denver, said Kluck, who
noted it is very difficult for certain
automotive users – body shops,
for instance – to find locations. “It’s
really hard to find zoned auto-
motive space or space where a
municipality will allow automo-
tive uses anywhere in the metro
area,” he said.
Kluck said one tenant looked at
the Parker Road center sixmonths
before it needed space. “They
searched the entire market and
came back six months later and
said, ‘We can’t find anything,’”
he said.
Parker Road Car Center houses
various automotive uses, includ-
ing businesses that specialize in
auto body work, repair, gas and
brakes, for instance.Aconvenience
store is part of the mix.
