Tallen Capital Partners and Citivest Purchase Citrus Heights’ CA Bank Building, Leases Property to See’s Candies for New Flagship Store

Citrus Heights, CA (October 4, 2022) – Tallen Capital Partners, LLC, and Citivest Commercial, Inc. acquired the well located, two-story building pad formerly housing a regional Patelco Bank from Patelco Bank on May 23, 2022. See’s Candies has entered a long-term triple net lease for the building to house its first flagship store with a retail shop, business-to-business operations, and regional offices.

The freestanding 10,621 square foot, two-story building, is located at the high traffic intersection of Sunrise and Uplands Way.  “See’s Candies representatives have relayed to us that they have found the perfect location for their first corporate flagship operation in over 100-years,” said Terry Tallen, CEO, Tallen Capital Partners, LLC (TCP).  We are immensely proud to add this jewel box to our growing retail portfolio.”

TCP and Citivest are known in the retail real estate industry for the successful repositioning of properties and achieving significant returns on invested capital through the redevelopment of under-performing shopping center and retail projects in both urban and suburban markets. The companies believe the value creation process depends on establishing strong relationships within communities, staying connected to the market, adeptly addressing the discretionary approval process, while focusing on establishing successful locations for its national, regional, and local tenant and broker relationships. They completed the redevelopment of the renown Rossmoor Shopping Center in Walnut Creek, CA in early 2020

“We have been active in the greater Sacramento, CA market for over 20-years and look forward to acquiring additional retail and multifamily properties in our state’s capitol. See’s representatives have advised us that they are consolidating several other locations in the greater Sacramento marketplace to create the flagship store which See’s stated will include their popular retail store, a business-to-business unit for corporate sales as well as the relocation of their nearby corporate offices,” says Mr. Tallen.

Both transactions were brokered by Carol Therien of Walnut Creek-based Retail Pacific.
