La Palma & Magnolia
Frontier acquired a struggling, dated Anaheim strip mall desperately in need of redevelopment due to deferred maintenance, a lack of previous property management, and the unexpected departure of its anchor tenant a few years earlier. Located at the highly trafficked intersection of La Palma and Magnolia, the Frontier team’s dual goal was to 1) bring the center back to life to serve the community, and 2) place a client, Rite-Aid, in a center that would allow for a drive-thru pharmacy. Known for honoring architectural roots and repurposing historic elements to lend a sense of place, Frontier worked closely with the City of Anaheim to preserve the center’s Mid-Century Modern pylon signs and match the new architecture to that period. The team also added an 8,000 square-foot patio area for dining. The changes drew appealing tenants to the center, including Hiccups Coffee+ Tea Bar, Churroholic, Firehouse Subs, Waba Grill, Popeye’s and Tacqueria de Anda. Now, the center is a busy community amenity with unique architecture and strong restaurant sales.
