Cortaro Crossing, located at 5850 W. Arizona Pavilions Dr., is a 19,901 SF multi-tenant neighborhood shopping center located in a predominate retail hub known as the Arizona Pavilion, and serves a large customer base due to limited competing centers and its proximity to I-10. Tenants include local restaurants, Taekwondo and insurance operators.

“Our investment strategy focus zeroes in on neighborhood shopping centers that provide everyday goods and services and community convenience,” said David Puchi, Baceline’s Managing Partner. “This means businesses that are internet-resistant and located in highly visible and densely populated communities. Grand Marketplace and Cortaro Crossings perfectly align with this strategy and are great additions to our portfolio.”

Baceline’s targeted core income strategy focuses on holdings in the country’s midsection and is designed to benefit investors who seek to earn consistent and higher levels of distributable income from their portfolio.
