announced that it has arranged the sale of 901 Corporate, a 96,365-square-foot, two-story, Class A office building located at 901 Corporate Center Drive in Pomona, California for $28.05 million, or $291 per square foot. The property traded in an off-market transaction.
Newmark Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Executive Managing Directors Paul Jones, Ken White and Brunson Howard, and Director Brandon White represented the seller, Foremost Corporate, a real estate investment firm based in Southern California. The buyer, represented by Newmark Director Andrey Mindirgasov, was The Korda Group, a family-owned-and-operated commercial developer and investor based in Los Angeles.
“901 Corporate provided our buyer with a long-term single-tenant NNN leased investment to a high-quality, regionally recognized tenant,” said Jones. “The Class A corporate headquarters building was recently extensively renovated and was purchased at significant discount to replacement cost.”
901 Corporate is 100% leased to LERETA, LLC, the industry’s largest and fastest-growing tax and flood service provider, serving more than 4,000 lenders. The property was built in 1989 and in 2020 underwent an extensive tenant buildout completed by Ware Malcomb, a premier full-service international design, architecture and engineering firm. The property provides LERETA a classy corporate identity along with ample surface parking and larger-than-market-average floor plans.
901 Corporate is part of a master-planned office development that provides convenient access to business, residential and recreational opportunities throughout the region. The property is in proximity to the San Bernardino (I-10), Orange (SR-57) and Chino Valley (SR-71) Freeways providing convenient commutes to the entire Southern California basin.
According to Newmark Research, the Eastern San Gabriel Valley submarket of which 901 Corporate is a part, totals 7.4 million square feet of office inventory. The submarket registered an office vacancy rate of 10.8% as of the third quarter of 2021, with average Class A asking rental rates averaging $2.50 per square foot per month.
