Granada Village is a 224,648 square foot shopping center located in Granada Hills, California. Located 21 miles northwest of Downtown Los Angeles, the Center lies in the greater San Fernando Valley which is home to 1.75 million residents and is continuing to become increasingly dense and diversified by way of multi-family developments and immigration. Granada Village is an established promotional/neighborhood shopping center in the north San Fernando Valley and draws not only from Granada Hills, but the neighboring communities of Northridge, Porter Ranch, North Hills and Chatsworth as well. The Center is supported by a strong and stable population base of over 146,000 residents within a 3-mile radius. The majority of these residents (66%) own their homes and consist of well-educated (approximately 42% of the population holds a Bachelor degree or higher) and high- income families with an average annual household income exceeding $108,000. Granada Village is located at the northwest corner of Chatsworth Street and Zelzah Avenue which is considered to be one of the area’s primary retail intersections in that it supports over 500,000 square feet of retail tenants and a traffic count consistently exceeding 38,000 cars per day. Along with the centers surrounding the Northridge Mall at Nordhoff and Tampa (the regional retail hub of the north San Fernando Valley), and Porter Ranch Town Center (the power center at Corbin and Rinaldi), the retail at Chatsworth Street and Zelzah Avenue is recognized as one of the primary destinations for new retailers seeking space in the trade area. The variety of retail offerings (i.e., grocery, drug, soft goods, food offerings, etc.) allows Granada Village to serve not only as a dynamic community destination, but also as a common meeting place and shopping venue for the 35,000 students attending California State University Northridge (approximately 1 mile south of Granada Village) and the 1,500 students at Granada Hills High School (1 block south of Granada Village). While located in the heart of the community, Granada Village is also conveniently located one mile south of the north San Fernando Valley’s primary east/west thoroughfare, the 118 Freeway. The property’s layout is designed to support and benefit from its high traffic volumes as a result of its ten major access points and two signalized intersections. Granada Village maintains a strong mix of successful anchor tenants including a high-volume TJ Maxx which is ranked within the top 10% of its California stores, Rite Aid, and Stein Mart which is the only location that serves the greater San Fernando Valley. Also, Regency Centers has executed with Sprouts Farmers Market and HomeGoods, among numerous other national anchors. Regency Centers also negotiated with other big-name tenants to fill the current shop space and pad vacancies. With the announcement of this new tenant base, a renovation and rehabilitation of the Granada Village shopping center was entitled and designed. This remodel entailed a dramatically updated exterior façade and architectural components, a new pedestrian plaza, updated signage, and a reconfigured parking lot. All of the existing retailers remained open during the Center’s upgrades, which commenced in early March 2011 and finished in 2012. Prior to completion of the project, in addition to the previously signed anchor tenants, several new shop and pad tenants have had leases executed to call Granada Village their home. Some of these tenants included Freebirds World Burrito, Zankou Chicken, Wells Fargo Home, Gatten Sushi, Sprint, Presto Pasta, Carter’s, 4G Wireless (Verizon), Salon Integriti, and Fantastic Sam’s.
