Charing Cross Partners is further expanding its retail portfolio in Southern California after buying 111,624-square-foot Home Depot for $61.8 million.

The property includes a 94,530-square-foot Home Depot building and an outdoor garden sales area totaling 17,094 square feet. It’s about one mile west of the Glendale Galleria and The Americana at Brand shopping center.

U.S. retail sales rebounded slightly in August after a drop in July, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. And retailers nationwide said they plan to open more stores than they close this year.

The Home Depot had an explosive 2020 as the home improvement sector thrived. Foot traffic this year is still up significantly compared to 2019 levels. In July, national visits to Home Depot were up nearly 13 percent compared to July 2019, according to a recent report from Placer.ai. It showed visits during July were up by at least 7 percent compared to July 2019 in California, Texas, Florida and New York.

Charing Cross added the Home Depot after it acquired a Walmart-anchored shopping center in the South Bay in a deal that closed on the last day of 2020. And, last month, the firm acquired an office complex in Pasadena. Meanwhile, L.A.-based Decron Properties is a frequent player in the multifamily game as it replaces its retail and commercial space with residential
