Firm expands San Diego portfolio with plans for additional investment, according to CEO Greg Merage.

    NEWPORT BEACH, CA, February 04, 2011 /24-7PressRelease/ -- MIG Real Estate, LLC, a Newport Beach, Calif.-based real estate investment company formerly known as Stoneridge Capital Partners, has acquired two office buildings totaling 138,000 square feet. The buildings are located within the University Town Center submarket of La Jolla, Calif. The all-cash transaction marks MIG Real Estate's third and fourth San Diego office acquisitions since June 2010 and continues the firm's expansion strategy focused on opportunistic investments. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.

"The buildings benefit from their close proximity to regional housing, ample base of amenities and convenient freeway access," said Greg Merage, Chief Executive Officer of MIG Real Estate. "These characteristics will contribute to the success of this investment as we utilize our strong cash position to increase our presence within the San Diego market."

The properties are located at 4110 and 4224 Campus Point Court within the Golden Triangle section of La Jolla, home to various large employers, including the University of California, San Diego, Qualcomm, Scripps, SAIC, Nissan, Pfizer and Eli Lilly.

The multi-tenant office properties will be marketed to tenants with space requirements of 40,000 square feet or more.

MIG Real Estate entered the San Diego market in June 2010 with its acquisition of the 46,620-square-foot Four Governor Park office property in La Jolla and will continue to invest in San Diego properties, according to Merage.

"We are committed to increasing our holdings within the San Diego market and are evaluating investment opportunities for office, retail, hotel and apartment properties," said Merage.
