Mercado del Lago Shopping Center

Leasing plan and financial analysis for planned shopping center in Rancho Santa Margarita, California.

 

Extensive financial analysis was prepared in collaboration with client organization’s CFO, in tandem with ongoing land use master planning and experiential design efforts for this town center facility in the heart of this highly-successful master-planned community.

 

The City of Rancho Santa Margarita is a result of a handshake land deal where James C. Flood and Richard O’Neill, Sr. purchased the property and later, O’Neill deeded his land holdings to his son, Jerome, under whose leadership the ranch grew to 230,000 acres and spanned three counties. The holdings later become home to such communities as Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita. The Rancho Santa Margarita landholding traces its history to the Shoshonean Native American Indian trible known as the Acagchemen. The community is situated along the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains, master planned as an urban village.

 

Jumeirah Hills New Town

Retail district programming for planned mega mixed-use development in Dubai, including guest experiential programming, district- and neighborhood-level tenant mix, tenanting, and leasing strategies.

 

StoneCreek Partners was retained to create retail and shopping center concepts and a leasing plan, in a dozen locations throughout the planned Madinat Jumeirah “new town” in Dubai. The project was envisioned as a new urban core for that district of Dubai.

 

Work included a detailed retail tenant mix, leasing, facilities descriptions, critical success factors, and detailing of the retail-entertainment program for more than two million square feet of retail space (GLA). StoneCreek Partners also helped devise the “big idea” for this master-planned community – a network of great streets and grand canals with destination entertainment at major intersections throughout the community.

 

Valencia MPC Retail

StoneCreek Partners was retained by a division Marketing Dept. of this major land development company to provide advisory services in connection with ongoing business planning efforts. A focus of the work was the build-out of the retail portfolio of neighborhood and community shopping centers.

 

The project focused on application of business planning methods to support planned levels of more comprehensive future land development, including builder land residual analysis, methods of consolidating financial data for multiple projects, and aspects of financial reporting to senior management.

 

Valencia is located in the northwestern corner of the Santa Clarita Valley, a part of Los Angeles County in Southern California. In 1987, it was one of the four communities (along with Saugus, Newhall, and Canyon Country) that merged to create the city of Santa Clarita, California. Valencia was planned and developed over several decades starting in the 1960’s by The Newhall Land & Farming Company. Valencia’s master plan features paseos which allow a resident to travel around the entirety of Valencia without having to cross streets.

Morongo Lands Master Plan

StoneCreek Partners worked with the Morongo Band of Mission Indians to prepare a comprehensive economic development strategy for the Native American tribe’s vast landholdings and casino in Cabazon (Palm Springs, California area).

 

The economic strategy included a master plan and land development strategy for all lands along the interstate that leads in and out of Palm Springs. Phase 1 conceptual plans included relocation of the tribe’s existing casino, into the heart of a new master-planned development. Casino Morongo Resort & Spa, a 304-room hotel with 113,000-square-foot casino, was subsequently constructed by Perini Building Company.
