SAN FRANCISCO-Cost Plus Plaza near Fisherman’s Wharf has changed hands for $29 million, or $329.54 per sf. The 88,338-sf retail center at Bay and Taylor streets is anchored by Cost Plus World Market, Barnes & Noble and, in a separate building, Petco. Starbucks’ regional headquarters office is on the upper floor of the building occupied by Cost Plus and Barnes & Noble.

The new owner is DMP Properties, a Newport Beach, CA-based private investment group making its first acquisition in the Bay Area. The seller is VICPHIL (US) Inc., a Hong Kong-based family trust. Michael Federle, Nicholas Bicadro and Cynthia Stevenin of Grubb & Ellis had the disposition assignment and also procured the buyer.

Located at the north end of the city’s historic cable car route, Cost Plus Plaza was built in 1986 as a replica of the original Cost Plus store that it replaced, with the added benefit of underground parking. The buildings received a seismic upgrade in 1995.

Federle tells GlobeSt.com that the asset is a long-term hold for the new owner, who beat out 17 other suitors. The sale price represents a sub-6% capitalization rate, Federle says.

The seller ultimately completed a 1031 exchange, Federle says, buying an office property in Reston, VA, for $36.5 million.
