Leasing Market Overview


San Fernando Valley is a suburban area adjacent to inland Ventura County, where retailers cater to a diverse customer base including a wide range of income, educational attainment, race, and ethnic groups. The vacancy rate in the region has been steady at around 5.5% since the start of 2021, with higher vacancies in malls and power centers.

Recent redevelopments in the Northridge Fashion Center include the opening of Dick’s Sporting Goods, Gold’s Gym, and department store Curacao in the former Sears space, and plans to construct a 350-unit apartment complex on a 4.8-acre site. Leasing activity has mostly been for spaces under 10,000 SF, with discount retailer Five Below recently committing to a 15-year lease of 15,800 SF at the Nordhoff Plaza community center in Northridge.
