Cushman & Wake- field represented the seller, Phoenix- based Gilbert/Vaughn Partners, in the transaction, and Conflux Real Estate stood in for the buyer. Dierks Bentley's Whiskey Row is a restaurant and bar. This particular site is only one of four successful loca- tions, the others being in Nashville, Tenn.; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and Tempe, Ariz. Country singer Dierks Bentley teamed up with Riot Hospitality in 2013 to create Whiskey Row. The hospitality company operates several other restaurants, under the Bottled Blonde, El Hefe, Farm & Craft and Hand Cut banners. The property, built in 2017, is located in Gilbert's popular Heritage District, which has become a magnet for consumers seeking upscale dining and nightlife. "This is a great investment for Treg Bradley, as Whiskey Row will be a long-term, successful tenant in Gilbert for years to come," said Chris Hollenbeck, a Cushman & Wakefield managing director.

The Paris-based company now has 102 shopping malls, 13 office properties and 10 convention centers, valued at a combined €62 billion (roughly $72 billion), across Europe and the U.S. The company will sell off slightly more than $3.5 billion worth of retail and office assets from the Unibail-Rodamco portfolio, said CEO Christophe Cuvillier, speaking to The Wall Street Journal. Then, in the fall, the company will assess which of its 35 Westfield malls could be sold. Sales remain strong at the higher- end malls, which account for much of the Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield port- folio, Cuvillier says. About 85 percent of Westfield's assets are flagship malls, and the rest are smaller regional assets, he told the newspaper. "Some of those can be improved and turned into flagship assets," said Cuvillier. "Some can be extended, and some will be sold." n
