Capital Square Realty Buys CVS Store in the Heart of Strip’s Development Boom
By Alex Girda, Associate Editor
The appeal of drugstores to investors was recently underscored when an affiliate of Capital Square Realty Advisors L.L.C. acquired a 14,378-square-foot CVS on the ground floor of Sky Las Vegas, the luxury condominium tower on the Las Vegas Strip. Capital Square’s purchase also reflects the demand expected to flow from the multibillion-dollar resort projects under development nearby.
Located at 2700 S. Las Vegas Blvd., the store is leased to CVS Caremark Corp. on a long-term basis. Capital Square Realty CEO Louis Rogers commented in a statement, “The facility also benefits from a strategic location on the rapidly-developing north end of the Las Vegas Strip.”
High-profile projects under way include SLS Las Vegas, the 1,600-key resort scheduled to open this year on the former site of the Sahara, and the $2 billion Resorts World Las Vegas, which will debut in 2016 where the Stardust once stood.
Regarding the deal’s financing, Capital Square’s vice president of acquisitions, Yogi Singh, added that the firm placed “highly accretive debt on the property based on the credit of CVS Caremark Corporation.” BCG Capital Partners procured the senior debt.
