SOLD ABOVE LIST PRICE! Class A Office Building in Jeffrey Office Park (1150 Roosevelt Avenue, Irvine, CA)

Those looking to purchase an office building in Irvine know that there is not a lot of supply out there.  I recently helped a client sell their 4,960 square foot office building for above list price to an investor!  The transaction highlights include a 1031 exchange component, negotiation of a leaseback from the buyer, and facilitating the release of rights of first refusal held by an existing tenant and the Irvine Company.  Given my legal background, these tasks were not difficult to accomplish for the client.

Do not hesitate to call me with any questions about buying or selling a similar property!

Downtown LA: New Wilshire Grand Design Released

Keep your eyes out for the new Wilshire Grand appearing in the downtown Los Angeles skyline.  The tower is expected to be approximately 1,100 feet tall (100 feet taller than downtown Los Angeles’ current tallest building, the US Bank tower) and to be completed in 2017 (looks like I have a few years before I have to update my website photos).  The new Wilshire Grand is expected to add 900 hotel rooms and 400,000 square feet of office space to downtown Los Angeles.  For comparison, the JW Marriot Hotel and Ritz Carleton, the first skyscraper built in downtown in two decades, added approximately 1,000 hotel rooms in 2010.
