Mercado González in Costa Mesa is another rising phoenix for Northgate Market family

Nov. 18, 2023 3:01 PM PT

Don Miguel González Jiménez was the proud owner of a shoe factory in a small town near Mexico’s Guadalajara in 1952 when fire consumed the building, forcing him to find a way to pay back his creditors.

After traveling the country for many years, looking for ways to sustain the growing family he was raising with wife Doña Teresa Reynoso de González, the proprietor decided to immigrate to the United States, a place where fortune still favored the brave.

For years, the family was separated as González worked to secure green cards so they could join him — a feat he accomplished in 1976. A few years later, the family took over a liquor store in Anaheim called Northgate Market, eventually replacing its bottles and cans with fresh fruits and vegetables.

The family couldn’t afford a new sign, the story goes, so they kept the name.

“It was a 2,000-square-foot store on Anaheim Boulevard,” recalled 36-year-old grandson Joshua González of the first location. “Now, we have 13 brothers and sisters who are owners of the company. We are now in the third generation — there are 53 of us, and 30 of us work in the family business.”

The Orange County-based company comprises dozens of markets extending into Los Angeles County still largely run by González’s children, their spouses, offspring and numerous family friends and associates.

Members of the enormous family on Tuesday gathered with Costa Mesa city officials and community business leaders to celebrate the 45th installment in the Northgate Market empire — Mercado González.

The sprawling 70,000-square-foot storefront, located at 2300 Harbor Blvd., bills itself as a “gastronomic adventure that takes foodies on a journey through the heart and soul of Mexican cuisine” via curated food offerings, vibrant art and rich in-store experiences.

Weighing in at nearly twice the size of the family’s typical stores, Mercado González evokes the feeling of being in a Mexican bazaar where shoppers travel among different “puestos,” or stalls, learning about specialty foods and beverages that define a particular geographic region.

“[We’re] showcasing ingredients, prepared foods and traditions of Mexico, both Old World and contemporary,” Joshua González explained of the concept. “There are many Mexicos we want to share here.”

And similar to Don Miguel González Jiménez’s unfortunate 1952 shoe factory fire, the creation of Mercado González is another rising phoenix in the family’s ever-evolving story.

Tom Herman, who heads Northgate Market’s strategic efforts, said he initially worked with Johsua González and a handful of third-generation cohorts on a proposal to fill a portion of the 70,000-square-foot commercial area with a more traditional market and to lease out the remaining space, possibly for dining.

But then COVID-19 hit, tossing a monkey wrench into those plans. Pandemic closures caused a significant delay to the Costa Mesa project but also provided an opportunity for the family to reconsider the best use of the site and craft a bigger, better vision.

“We had plans, building permits — everything. We threw it all away and started over again,” Herman recalled. “We thought, why don’t we do something that’s never been done before?”

During Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony, VIP guests toured the mercado’s many food stalls, where employees passed out churros, carnitas, birria and other delectable offerings.

Costa Mesa Councilwoman Andrea Marr enthused about having a warm tortilla with butter, fresh from the on-site tortilleria, placed into her waiting hands.

“In so many of our cultures food is a part of joy,” she said. “So being here and having the chance to experience all the different regional cuisines, it just brings a smile to your face.”

Speaking to a crowded house, Costa Mesa Mayor John Stephens recalled learning more about Northgate and the family behind it during a visit last year with Councilman Manuel Chavez to the company’s Anaheim headquarters.

There, leaders explained their vision for the Costa Mesa storefront, a dream Stephens described as perfectly executed.

“You hear about dreams, and you hear about opportunities. But what I feel this place is founded on is love — you see it everywhere in every detail,” Stephens said.

“On behalf of the entire community, I want to thank you for bringing your love and your kindness and investment into our great city,” he said to the company’s officials. “This place will be packed forever with people coming to enjoy it.”

A major multifamily property has sold in one of California's largest apartment deals of the past year, and one that shows continued demand in areas where it's harder to build new supply.

Multifamily owner and operator Advanced Real Estate, based in Irvine, California, bought the 714-unit The Grand Costa Mesa at 2855 Pinecreek Drive in the Southern California city of Costa Mesa, according to a statement from the buyer. The seller was an entity related to Houston-based apartment giant Camden Property Trust. A Camden representative did not immediately respond to a phone call for comment from CoStar News.

The sales price was roughly $234 million, or about $327,730 per unit, according to a representative for the buyer. That's below the Costa Mesa average of $448,000 per unit, according to CoStar data.

The deal is among the largest apartment sales in the Golden State this year in terms of number of units. It points to investors' willingness to spend to upgrade complexes at a time when building new apartments can be pricey.

“Very few large properties trade in Orange County, especially in a premier location like Costa Mesa,” Advanced CEO Rick Julian said in the statement. “The barriers to entry and replacement costs are so high, an asset like this can’t be duplicated at this basis, even with the extensive capital proposed for renovations.”

Major Upgrades Planned

As part of the deal, Advanced secured a $150.8 million Freddie Mac loan at a fixed interest-rate of 5.95% for 10 years with full-term, interest-only payments, according to the statement.

Advanced plans to spend $45 million in upgrading the property's pools, spas, clubhouse and dog park, according to the statement. In addition, washers and dryers are expected to be added to all the units, and apartment interiors are being planned to be modernized.

The deal adds to Advanced's roughly 12,000-unit apartment portfolio valued at more than $4 billion, according to the statement. The company also bought apartment properties in Long Beach and Huntington Beach, California, this year.

The Costa Mesa apartment market has an average monthly rent of $2,556, below the Orange County average of $2,643, according to CoStar data. The market vacancy is 3.7% which is on par with the Orange County average.

For the Record

JLL represented the seller in the deal and represented Advanced in securing the loan. JLL's Blake Rogers, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chelsea Jervis, CJ Angle, Carter Jones, Audrey Souders were involved in the deal along with Kevin MacKenzie, Greg Brown, Charlie Vorsheck and Kyle White.

A Gigantic New Mexican Food Hall and Marketplace Is Opening in Costa Mesa

Grocery chain Northgate is going hard on a marketplace format common in Mexico with upwards of 20 colorful stalls and food options called Mercado Gonzalez, which will include famed El Moro churro stand from Mexico City, carnitas from Carnitas Don Miguel, tortas by Chiva Torta, and tacos by Tacos Los Guichos, available from breakfast through dinner.Located in the grocer’s ...

Grocery chain Northgate is going hard on a marketplace format common in Mexico with upwards of 20 colorful stalls and food options called Mercado Gonzalez, which will include famed El Moro churro stand from Mexico City, carnitas from Carnitas Don Miguel, tortas by Chiva Torta, and tacos by Tacos Los Guichos, available from breakfast through dinner.

Located in the grocer’s new Costa Mesa location, the food hall and marketplace will take after notable markets like Mercado Juarez in Monterrey, Mercado de Abastos in Guadalajara, and Mercado de Aretesanias in Oaxaca, among others. With an opening scheduled early next month, the market will also house the previously announced fine dining restaurant Maizano and cocktail bar Entre Nos from Javier Hernandez Pons and Jorge Salim, two of the partners behind LA Cha Cha Chá and Loreto.

Like the markets in Mexico, the beating heart of Mercado Gonzalez will be a butcher shop, tortilleria, cheese specialist, produce stands, specialty foods, and other artisan goods that one would find in Mexico. The concept itself is a smart reworking of the typical American supermarket layout but with the intuitiveness and walkability of a Mexican mercado. The first Northgate market opened in 1980 in Anaheim as Northgate González Market; ownership is now into the third generation spread across 13 siblings.

In addition to Mercado Gonzalez’s food stalls, there will be a community kitchen to support local entrepreneurs and aspiring chefs to learn the business and develop a following. Other features include indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy food and drink on the premises, aguas frescas, beer, wine, tequilas, mezcal, pastries, and desserts. Live music will be another element to add enjoyment.

The entire experience looks to be a solid slam dunk given the popularity of food halls in Southern California and the region’s substantial Latinx community. But really, the whole venture seems like a smart way of repackaging the grocery store and food hall experience into something that reflects the traditional feel of Mexican mercados. One can only hope that Northgate and other Mexican supermarkets will adopt this format into other SoCal cities. Mercado Gonzalez is opening at 2300 Harbor Boulevard, Costa Mesa, CA.

Winter Fest O.C. returns bigger than ever to Costa Mesa

A T-shirt is often fair game when dealing with a mild Orange County winter.

Those aspiring to a more traditional winter wonderland, though, don’t have far to go.

Winter Fest O.C. returns this year at the Orange County fairgrounds, opening Friday and running through Jan. 7.

“A lot of people in Orange County really haven’t experienced winter before,” Winter Fest O.C. executive producer Mark Entner said. “Especially kids and so forth, maybe they haven’t had the chance to go up to our local mountains when sometimes we do get snow. This is a fantastic opportunity for our community to be able to enjoy a winter experience.”

This is the second year back with the full experience, Entner said, after two years of a drive-through Night of Lights during the coronavirus pandemic.

There are several new additions, including a real ice-skating trail, to the festival that boasts more than a million lights and is Southern California’s largest winter festival.

“What’s really cool about it is when they’re doing their skate session, they’ll be able to go inside part of the trail,” Entner said. “We’ve got a huge ornament in there where they can get their pictures inside the ornament, then get back out on the ice and keep skating around the trail.”

The North Pole Journey, a 45-minute guided tour that has interactive sensory elements, also has been transformed. At the end of the tour, visitors get their certification of being a Winter Fest elf.

Snow play returns, featuring real snow in an 8,000-square-foot pavilion. Families can enjoy four different aspects of snow play, including a snow carousel, snow slides, a snowball range and general free play.

“Polar putt-putt,” a nine-hole miniature golf course with LED lights, also returns for its second year.

VIP experiences are available, where guests can rent cabanas for a two- or three-hour session. Fireside igloos can also be rented.

There’s a new holiday market, featuring local artisans and vendors, as well as carnival games.

“We’re always listening to our guests on their feedback,” said Entner, an Irvine resident. “One of the big changes that we made based upon guest feedback was that our general admission ticket includes most of the attractions within Winter Fest. That way, when guests come, they really have a full experience. Outside of the ice trail or the carnival, pretty much everything else is included.”

Daily entertainment also includes meet-and-greets with characters like Yowie the Yeti, Pep the Penguin and Snowdrop the Polar Bear, as well as the nightly tree-lighting ceremony and parade. Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley is scheduled to light the tree on Friday night to kick off the festival’s run.

Winter Fest O.C. will run at the Orange County Fairgrounds on Thursdays and Fridays from 4 to 10 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 2 to 10 p.m. Starting with Christmas on Monday, Dec. 25, the experience will be open every day until it closes on Jan. 7.

New Year’s Eve will feature Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars tribute bands, Entner said, along with two countdowns at 6 p.m. and midnight, plus fireworks.

During a preseason sale that ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m., Winter Fest O.C. tickets are $34.99 plus fees for adults and $29.99 for children ages 3 to 12. There is also a daily Ultimate Experience Pass available.

A Season Pass also is available, allowing unlimited entry for all 32 days of Winter Fest O.C. for $80.99 for adults and $75.99 for children. The festival is cashless.

Parking is $12 at the Orange County Fairgrounds.
