Downtown Brea is an exemplary success in creating a vibrant urban core in a previously sleepy suburban community. Working in partnership with the City of Brea, CIM set out to create an urban district with residential, retail, dining, and entertainment options, as well as plentiful parking. This mixed-use development provided contemporary loft-style apartments, and offered an ideal home for retailers including Old Navy, Tower Records, Chicos, Bath and Body Works, Ann Taylor Loft and Eddie Bauer.

CIM sold this property in 2002.



Investment Highlights
  • Ample parking in city-owned structures
  • 62 loft-style apartments above retail
  • Easy access to public transportation
CIM views urban investing as a discipline rather than a market niche or a trend.
