HANFORD, CA-Inland Western Real Estate of Oak Brook, IL has signed Kohl’s department store to a 20-year lease of a 68,726-square-foot former Mervyns store at 1677 W. Lacy Blvd., one of seven former Mervyns locations that Inland has filled with new tenants. Kris Wojtecki, asset manager for Inland Western, says that the firm is “witnessing an increase in leasing velocity as certain retailers, particularly those we have tenured relationships with,” sign for space in the company’s buildings.

Wojtecki and his team worked directly with Kohl’s on the lease, which fills one of 25 Mervyns vacancies in properties owned by Inland. In addition to the seven sites that Inland Western has leased to new tenants, it has an additional 12 of the 25 Mervyns vacancies in active negotiations. The lease in Hanford comes on the heels of Inland’s recent re-leasing of 10 former Circuit City/Linens ‘N Things spaces.

Among the other Mervyns spaces that Inland Western has leased are three in California totaling 233,022 square feet that the Oak Brook-based REIT leased to Burlington Coat Factory. Those three include 77,192 square feet in Moreno Valley, 77,936 square feet in Vacaville and 77,874 square feet in Elk Grove.
