Glendora Commons

Seagrove Property Group has sold a leasehold interest at Glendora Commons — a nearly 42,000-square-foot retail center anchored by an Aldi grocery store — to a foreign investor for $13.65 million.

Leasehold interests, or ground leases, are becoming more common. They allow property developers to get a foothold in prime neighborhoods where land doesn’t often change hands, and they give the landowners a steady source of monthly income without the responsibility of owning, maintaining, managing and improving a building.

Glendora Commons, located at 1241-1251 Lone Hill Ave., is nearly fully leased to tenants including Aldi, Guitar Center and Chick-fil-A.

Brokerage Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. represented the seller in the deal. The leasehold interest includes the option to purchase in 2031, according to CoStar Group Inc.
