KW Commercial Calabasas and WESTMAC Commercial Brokerage Company have arranged the sale of 1500 Palma Drive in Ventura, CA for $8,400,000, or $233 per square foot.
Built in 2005, the two-story office building is comprised of approximately 36,000 rentable building area on approximately 77,101 square feet of land. It is home to a mix of office tenants on short term leases, and Barrister Executive Suites, who run the operating agreement for the co-working portion of the building.
1500 Palma Drive has a Class A office environment consistent with the hands-on, quality and care initiated by the Sellers since purchasing the property in 2007. The building features immaculate interiors, manicured exteriors, and has undergone upgrades in recent years; solar panels were installed on the roof in 2015. The interior lobby features high ceilings and high-end finishes. The exterior facade is impeccable, and the grounds are polished and are well-maintained.
The property is ideally positioned along U.S. Highway 101, providing unbeatable signage opportunity and brand exposure to an estimated 110,000 vehicles traveling past each day. It is a short distance from an abundance of restaurants and shopping, including Ventura Riviera and Ventura Gateway shopping plazas, and the Ventura Harbor. Additionally, 1500 Palma Drive is close to numerous technologies, aerospace, communications, agricultural, and manufacturing employers that call the region home.
“Ventura is the region’s leader in the healthcare and public administration sectors with a lack of inventory of well-located office buildings available for purchase in the market,” said Lee Black. At the close of escrow, there were only two office buildings with more than 20,000 square feet of building being offered for sale on Costar within a 10-mile radius of 1500 Palma Drive. “It has ample parking, allowable medical use, and it’s next-door to a 57,000 square foot Kaiser Permanente,” said T.C. Macker. “As a medical owner-user/investor, it was a rare find and the perfect fit for new ownership, who plans to occupy a portion of the building for their expanding medical practice,” Black added.
Lee Black, Veronica Black of KW Commercial Calabasas and T.C. Macker, CCIM, Jennifer Moscoso of WESTMAC Commercial Brokerage Company co-represented the Seller.
