About Topa Properties, LLC.
Topa Properties, LLC., formerly known as, Topa Equities, (VI), Ltd., was founded in 1980 by John Anderson, Sr., Chairman of Los Angeles-based parent company, Topa Equities, Ltd. John Anderson is a successful businessman, lawyer, and principal benefactor of the prestigious Anderson School of Management at UCLA . Through a series of acquisitions of beverage and duty-free wholesaling operations, Mr. Anderson built a sizable portfolio of real property holdings in the Virgin Islands between 1980 and 1983. These acquisitions became the basis for establishing Topa Equities, (VI), Ltd. as the holding and management company for the real estate portfolio.
Topa Properties, LLC. continued to acquire property in the Virgin Islands after 1983 with several acquisitions focusing on downtown Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas and Christiansted, St. Croix commercial retail properties. In 2001, Topa purchased its first St. John property, the prestigious Mongoose Junction II building located in the heart of Cruz Bay. The most recent acquisition took place in late 2003 with the purchase of Historic Bakery Square in Charlotte Amalie, a cluster of old Danish buildings surrounding a central courtyard that dates back to the early 1800’s.
