The sale was comprised of two separate multi-tenant buildings home to a mix of office and retail tenants.

A shared parking lot with approximately forty-eight spaces is located behind the buildings.

8229 and 8235 Santa Monica Boulevard are situated between Harper and Havenhurst Avenues at the center of a broad range of retail and office amenities that make up the highly traveled, popular Santa Monica Boulevard district. The immediate area is surrounded by affluent neighborhoods, highly sought-after boutique shopping, and some of the most desirable entertainment destinations in the world.

“The Seller received multiple offers within the first week which allowed for a quick closing at an aggressive cap rate,” said T.C. Macker, CCIM. “Under market rents and short-term leases created tremendous upside opportunity for the buyer,” Chris Holland added.

The buildings were sold together to an investor by a private trust.

Conor Halloran and Brad McCoy of Lee & Associates Los Angeles West, Inc. represented the Buyer.
