Due to its location, size and institutional quality of the asset, this transaction is a major turning point for YPI, said Zaya Younan, chairman and CEO of Younan Properties. We already have several tenants interested in expansion, which will bring the Sepulveda Center from 80% to 95% occupancy within the first three months.
