The Highlander Medical Office Building, located at 6137 Watt Ave, faithfully served the community of North Highlands for almost 50 years before succumbing to the pressures of the great recession. Operations for the medical clinic and supportive services endured through the 2001 closure of nearby McClellan Air Force Base (now McClellan Park) and continued facilitating patients until around 2010.
Highlander Building – Former Sacramento Family Medical Clinic (North Highlands, CA)
The +/- 10,300 square foot, single story building offered excellent visibility at the three-way intersection of Watt Ave & Don Julio, but even with traffic counts of 40,000 vehicles per day, prospective buyers/users/tenants eluded the various owners/sellers/landlords for many years.

South Sacramento’s Southgate Plaza is once again the subject of serious interest in commercial real estate circles. First, it was the unfortunate departure of Walmart in 2009, which resulted in the closing of its 135,000 square foot retail store on the southeast corner of Florin Road and Franklin Blvd. The approximate 300,000 square foot commercial shopping center was decimated as remaining tenants gradually moved out due to lack of foot traffic. Following a foreclosure on the property just one year later, the new operator and Sacramento commercial real estate brokers have been desperately trying to attract new tenants (see related article for progress update). Unfortunately, Walmart still controls the lease and is now doing its best to block a subsequent retailer from taking over its space for competitive reasons. County of Sacramento officials are furious and pressuring Walmart to reconsider its position for the good of the community. Brian Jacks of East West Commercial Real Estate’s Sacramento office was quoted by Kelly Johnson in an article, published in the Sacramento Business Journal. In addition, News 10 ran this story about the subject.
