SAN PEDRO, CA-Regency Realty, a Florida-based REIT, has paid $5.1 million to add a San Pedro shopping center to its growing portfolio of Southland properties.

The 105,000-sf Garden Village Shopping Center stands on 9.4 acres at the northeast corner of Western Avenue and Westmont Drive. The property was built in 1979 and experienced high vacancy levels and leasing problems in the late 1980s.
