Newmark announced the sale of 2600 Olive, a Class-A, LEED silver certified, 152,834-square foot office building in the heart of California’s Burbank Media District. Pacshore Partners, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm owned by Philip Orosco, acquired the building from Granite Properties, a commercial real estate investment, development and management company.
Newmark Co-head of U.S. Capital Markets Kevin Shannon, Executive Managing Directors Ken White and Rob Hannan, Senior Managing Director Laura Stumm and Senior Associate Michael Kolcum represented Granite Properties on the sale of the building.
“Granite has owned and managed 2600 Olive for seven years. During that time we’ve made significant updates to enhance the customer experience,” said Jason Purvis, Senior Managing Director, Granite Properties. “The property has benefited from the thriving entertainment industry in the Burbank Media District and growing demand for media content.”
Granite acquired 2600 Olive in 2014, and completed over $2.7 million in renovations, including the lobby, corridors and elevators, bathrooms, garage and parking, signage and building systems. Granite also installed the clean air technology, Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization, in the HVAC system.
“We have been eagerly looking to invest in the Burbank Media District office market and 2600 Olive is a great start. Granite has done a fantastic job of managing and modernizing the asset and we look forward to continuing down that path,” said Philip Orosco, Founder and President of Pacshore Partners.
The 10-story building is located on 2600 West Olive Avenue and is 97% leased. It is home to media related companies and located in close proximity of major TV and movie studios, including Warner Bros. The building features 24,000 square-foot floor plates, 13.5’ ceilings, unobstructed views, in-building parking with a 3.75/1000 parking ratio, and EV charging stations. It also has convenient access to Golden State (I-5) and Ventura (SR-134) freeways, Metrolink Amtrak stations and Bob Hope Airport.
“If anybody ever doubted the resiliency of the entertainment industry or its status as LA’s guiding light, the pandemic has erased any hesitation and Burbank is Exhibit 1-A,” said Hannan. “As the epicenter and backbone of LA’s expansive entertainment infrastructure, Burbank has benefited tremendously from the explosive growth of content providers, streaming or otherwise,” he added.
