Transwestern Brokers Two East Bay Retail Deals
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Transwestern today announced it brokered leases on behalf of two retail tenants. 9Round Fitness & Kickboxing assumed a 1,300-square-foot lease for five years in the Diablo Plaza at 2415 San Ramon Valley Road in San Ramon, Calif. Buon Vino Manufacturing, offering high-quality wines at affordable prices, signed a 1,635-square-foot lease for three years at 1545 Locust St. in downtown Walnut Creek, Calif.
Transwestern Senior Associate Coby Mikulich represented both tenants. He was assisted by Transwestern Vice President Matt Hurd in the representation of 9Round Fitness & Kickboxing. In the representation of Buon Vino Manufacturing, Mikulich was assisted by Transwestern Managing Director Ed Del Beccaro and Senior Vice President John Sechser. Diablo Plaza and its parent company, Regency Centers, were represented by Gwen White of Cornish and Carey Commercial Newmark Knight Frank. Representing the landlord at 1545 Locust St. were Mikulich, Del Beccaro and Sechser.
"We are excited to have found new East Bay homes for two popular retailers," said Mikulich. "The expansion of the 9Round fitness center franchise into Diablo Plaza is an excellent complement to the retail mix at the upscale shopping center. The company's hands-on, old-school approach brings a fresh alternative to fitness in San Ramon. And Buon Vino's new store in downtown Walnut Creek is well-located in a vibrant, pedestrian district that attracts customers with expendable incomes. Buon Vino is in a good position for sustainable growth, offering not just sales but also an enjoyable space for parties and business events."
