New York Investors Buy Troubled Anaheim Mall

Mark Mueller Wednesday, October 3, 2012

A trio of New York-based investment firms has partnered to buy the struggling Anaheim Gardenwalk shopping center.

Arcturus Group LLC, Avenue Capital Group and Elliott Management Corp. closed on the purchase of the 466,417-square-foot dining, entertainment and retail center.

Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed. The new owners plan to transition the mall, which is about 50% leased, into more of an entertainment center.

The mall, located across from Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center, was put up for sale by its lenders late last year.
