Details: The Shops at Rock Creek, two shopping centers totaling about 61,000 square feet on 5.5 acres on the east side of North Germantown Parkway south of Interstate 40. The centers were built in 2006, and the Shelby County Assessor's 2006 appraisal was $5.4 million. Tenants include Crescent City Beignets, Capel Rugs, Golf Galaxy and Lenny's Sub Shop, among others.
Dominion Partners bought the then-vacant land in September 2005 for $3.5 million.
Californians Rajpal S. Grewal signed for Kapree Rock Creek and Sarabjit Singh signed for Memphis Rock Creek. Grewal, who has investments in Ohio and California as well as Memphis, said he is preparing to develop some custom homes and condos in California, but has no plans to invest in the Memphis market for at least the next year.
When asked about the health of the local retail market, Grewal said he thinks it probably has peaked.
"You know, if the construction goes on at the rate it's going on, we might see some overdevelopment," he said. "... I think right now, there's not much more room for growth, at least in the next four or five years."
Grewal has bought other local properties under the Kapree name, including Trinity Place at 7990 Trinity Road in Cordova. See The Daily News' March 21 Real Estate Recap for details on that property.

Details: Grosvenor Square apartments on the northwest corner of Central Avenue and Belvedere Boulevard across the street from Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (IC) church and school. Complex includes 48 two-story townhouse apartments in two-story buildings built in 1973. Current plans include cosmetic changes, said Rick Kauerz, a member of Belvedere Central LLC.
Kauerz was involved with the property's previous ownership group, which he said had waned because of death and attrition, so a new ownership group was put together to buy the property.
The new ownership group will meet after Thanksgiving to discuss possibilities for the future of the property, which for now is keeping the Grosvenor Square name.
"At some point in time we'll probably look at all the options, including condo conversion and everything else, but we really haven't been together long enough to really formulate all our plans," he said.
