Brixton Capital recently purchased a grocery-anchored shopping center, located at SEC Dysart & McDowell Road in Avondale, Arizona, from Weingarten Realty (NSYE: WRI), for an undisclosed price.

The sale also included the Chase Bank and new Arizona Federal Credit Union pad buildings. Palmilla marks Brixton’s first acquisition of 2018 and its fifth acquisition in the last six months.
