Major news as a couple of large retail centers trade hands in the Puget Sound over the last two weeks. Wesbild has closed on a sale of Burien Town Plaza to Merlone Geier Partners of California for $14.4MM. At the same time, Wesbild is selling Westwood Village in West Seattle to Bentall Kennedy for $78.1MM.

The Westwood sale represents the largest single property retail center sale in the Puget Sound since the nearly $100MM sale of Factoria Mall in 2004. Burien Town Plaza is Merlone’s third purchase in the last four months after acquiring Marysville Town Center and Sunset Square.

Another center that has just closed is Promenade 23 in Seattle’s central district. Publicly traded REIT, Weingarten Realty, purchased the 97,000 sf center for $18.4MM last week from a group of local private owners and a non-profit. At $190/sf the center has a future development potential that could include mixed-use multi-family over retail.
