Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark”) announces it has arranged the sale of Torrance Technology Campus, a five-building, 575,976-square-foot technology campus situated on 27 acres in the heart of Los Angeles’ South Bay. The total consideration was approximately $182 million.
Newmark’s Co-Head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Senior Managing Director Scott Schumacher and Executive Managing Director Ken White represented Torrance FRM LLC. The buyer, Rexford Industrial, was self-represented.
“This 27-acre industrial-zoned parcel in Torrance provides inherent long-term value with scale that is nearly impossible to replicate in this mature infill market,” said Shannon. “The tech campus also produces current long-term returns that are more than double those found in the industrial market today from an investment grade tenant.”
Schumacher added, “Given the limited opportunities to acquire industrial land in the South Bay market and the recent massive run-up in land values, industrial investors and developers have increasingly sought covered-land-plays to secure opportunities like this for future redevelopment.”
Located at 3100-3110 Lomita Boulevard and 3121 Skypark Drive, the property is 90 percent leased to three credit tenants. L3Harris (S&P: BBB) occupies 80 percent of the campus with additional tenants, including Torrance Memorial Medical Center and various parking tenants.
The property is located directly adjacent to the national Joint Commission accredited Torrance Memorial Medical Center and includes three interconnected buildings on 26.7 acres. In 2016, L3 Harris expanded operations and extended their lease in this mission-critical facility with over $40 million of infrastructure improvements throughout the campus.
