Montecito Plaza Shopping Center

In 1986, Seagate identified this well located, yet run-down retail center as a unique value-added opportunity in an infill location. Substantial deferred mainatenance, passive management, high vacancy and poor market position resulted in a unique opportunity to renovate the physical structure and reposition and re-tenant the property. Retail sales increases exceeded 200%, continued high occupancy, and lease rates that lead the competitive markets attest to the successful implementaion of this strategy by Seagate.
