MARINA DEL REY, CA-Macerich Co., the giant retail REIT based in nearby Santa Monica, says it has sold a shopping center here in this toney Westside community for $99 million in cash and the assumption of debt.

The 448,000-sf community shopping center, known as Villa Marina Place, is just a few blocks from Fisherman’s Village.
