City of Hope expands in Corona; affordable senior apartments coming to Riverside – San Bernardino Sun

City of Hope has expanded its network of services in the Inland Empire, opening a larger facility Feb. 7 in Corona.

The healthcare provider says its 32,500-square-foot, two-story building at 320 West 6th St. is nearly three times larger than its former facility in the city.

“The expansion of services at this site in Corona is another step in our promise to bring world-class cancer research, care and supportive resources to more patients,” said Vijay Trisal, M.D., City of Hope’s chief medical officer.

Cancer patients living in and near Corona will be able to take part in clinical trials offering new medicines and treatments before they are available to the general public, City of Hope said. They will also have access to supportive care services, such as social work and physical therapy.

Services in addition to medical oncology include chemotherapy, radiation oncology, PET imaging and surgical oncology.

City of Hope also is investing $1 billion to build a campus in Orange County that will open later this year.

Retail pads sell for $11 million at Fontana shopping center

Two retail pad buildings at Highland Village Shopping Center in Fontana have sold for a combined $11 million, according to Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors.

The pads at the Sprouts-anchored shopping center at 16918-16938 South Highland Ave. total 13,515 square feet and include tenants Cafe Rio, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Fatburger, Oggi’s Pizza, AB Barber and Crumbl Cookies

Hanley’s team of Kevin Fryman, Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko represented the seller, Adler Realty Investments, which completed the ground-up shopping center development in 2018-2019. The buyer was a private 1031 exchange investor based in Beverly Hills who was represented by Mark Stein of CPMC Realty in Palm Desert.

“The sales of the two multi-tenant pad buildings at Highland Village were a prime example of matching up a retail investment not formally on the market yet with a specific investor’s acquisition criteria seeking to complete a 1031 exchange,” Fryman said.

Other tenants at the shopping center include Sit ‘n Sleep, Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers, Jack in the Box, Pacific Dental, Quick Quack Car Wash and Mountain View Tire & Auto Service.

The recent sale at Highland Village represented the eighth property Hanley has sold there for a combined 61,123 square feet and $40.8 million in sales.

School district gets federal grant to help with safety, training

The San Bernardino City Unified School District’s School Violence Prevention Program is getting a $336,147 grant from the Department of Justice’s Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.

This money, acquired with help from U.S. Rep. Pete Aguilar, will provide training and education educational opportunities in San Bernardino schools.

“As a father of two, I understand the uncertainty parents feel when they send their kids off to school every morning,” Aguilar said. “I am proud to announce funding that will help protect students and give teachers a safe place to promote learning.”

Joseph Paulino, police chief with the San Bernardino City Unified District Police Department, said the grant would help build stronger relationships between the community and his officers.

“The training for our school district police officers and the crime deterrents we will put in place will make our schools safer and give teachers and students peace of mind so they can focus on teaching and learning,” Paulino said.
