Deka Immobilien has acquired a single-tenant retail property in Santa Monica for $54.25 million from Tooley Interests LLC. The 29,064-square-foot property is fully occupied by a Whole Foods grocery story. Deka Immobilien acquired the property through its fund Deka-ImmobilienNordamerika, and the transaction is its second purchase on the West Coast.

The sale is a quintessential example of the investor demand for retail product. Over the last two years—as a result of the ongoing pandemic—grocery stores are experiencing record sales. According to Driss Oualkadi, president Deka Immobilien in the USA, the trend is what attracted the company to this Whole Foods-occupied single-tenant property. “This asset’s established and necessity-based footprint, combined with a long-term lease in the heart of Santa Monica, is an ideal example of the opportunities we seek to acquire as we enter into 2022,” he said in a statement.
