    "5 Points Plaza is the best lifestyle center in the trade area and has great co-tenants," said Courtway. "The center recently added a new Big 5 Sporting Goods, Wet Seal and an updated patio area for outside dining. The 160,000-square-foot community lifestyle center has Gap, Old Navy, Tilly's , Loft, Chico's, Vans, Trader's Joes, Pier I Imports, and many other retailers and great service tenants."

    5 Points Plaza celebrated its 50th anniversary this year and is owned by the Sher Family. Merritt Sher has been a real estate innovator since founding Terranomics Retail Services in 1970. He is credited with building the first "power center" in the U.S.

    According to Courtway, "CoStar reports that retail vacancy in Orange County has stabilized at 5% with the end of the third quarter. West and South Orange County has the lowest vacancy rate at 4.5% and 4.2%, respectively. Throughout 2010 and 2011, time on the market for vacant spaces is averaging in many cases over one year. The third quarter of 2011 saw a slight drop in the time on the market," she said.

    "Good, well-positioned shopping centers are attracting retailers," Courtway stated. "If retail sales for the fourth quarter are strong and retailers have confidence the customer will continue to spend money, they may begin to open a limited number of stores in 2012. Many retailers, having closed under-performing stores, are upgrading existing stores as well as relocating to better centers. With little or no new development, along with demand, the vacancy could see a drop in 2012, especially in the prime retail hubs."
