Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark”) announces it has arranged the $12 million sale of a highly functional, multi-tenant office building in Commerce, California.
Newmark’s Managing Director Ryan Plummer, Executive Managing Director Sean Fulp, and Director Mark Schuessler in partnership with Tony Naples of Lee & Associates represented the seller, Mulberry Capital, in the transaction. The buyer was Khosh Properties, LLC.
“Private capital continues to be active on well-located, multi-tenant office properties across Southern California,” said Plummer of Newmark’s Private Capital Group. “Over the past 15 years, the Commerce office market has never seen a vacancy rate greater than 7% and with nearly 3 years of WALT and a rapidly improving office market, this asset will continue to perform well for the buyer.”
The 46,980-square-foot property, located at 5100 South Eastern Avenue, is leased to three tenants with Roland Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer and distributor of high-end electronic musical instruments, electronic equipment and software, occupying a majority of the building. This location has served as their U.S. headquarters since 1999. The two-story, low-rise office building provides tenants with above market surface and structured parking and features an upgraded lobby and recently installed energy-efficient solar panels.
The property is situated within Commerce Office Park, which is at the intersection of two major roadways, Eastern and Slauson Avenues. This is a prime, central Los Angeles Basin location within one mile of several Freeways, including the Long Beach (I-710) and Santa Ana (I-5) and within four miles of the Pomona (SR-60), San Gabriel (I-605) and Century (I-105) Freeways. It is also within walking distance to a variety of retail services such as “the Food Plaza” across Eastern Avenue banking, travel agency, florist and day care providing attractive amenities for project tenants.
