A 1.5-acre shopping center in Canoga Park has sold for $9 million to a private investor with an eye toward redevelopment, according to brokerage CBRE Group.

Located at 21161 Victory Blvd. in the Warner Center district, the property currently features a two-story strip mall with restaurant, retail and office businesses.

The property also stands nearby Westfield Topanga, The Village at Westfield Topanga and Westfield Promenade, which is slated for an extensive renovation that will produce more restaurant and retail, hospitality and open-space amenities.

CBRE’s Laurie Lustig-Bower and Kamran Paydar represented the seller, a local private partnership.

“Warner Center continues to attract investment for redevelopment opportunities,” said Lustig-Bower in a statement. “The property is income-producing with leases that will give the new owner flexibility to move forward with developing a new project.”

The new owner plans to continue operating the site as a retail center while drawing up redevelopment plans, according to CBRE. The site sits within an Opportunity Zone with zoning that allows for a mixed-use multifamily project with up to 250 units.
