The Sternco Shopping Center, a 113,223-square foot center flanked by Asian Food Center, Goodwill, IHOP, India Super Market and other retailers, is 10.8-acres and fully leased.

Paul and Billy Sleeth of Colliers International brokered the deal from Sternco Center. Sternco was formerly known as NE 20th Street Properties.

Businesses in the complex include Pho Tai, Crossroads Appliance, Camms Cleaners, Red Wing Shoes & Factory Outlet, Little Garden Chinese Cuisine and many more.

Paul Sleeth, executive vice president at Colliers, explained the purchase for his client.

“The investment was purchased for its excellent current cash flow from very successful tenants and also provides a longer term redevelopment opportunity,” he said.
