Los Angeles, CA – Avison Young in cooperation with co-broker Newmark Knight Frank, announced today the $5 million sale of a 6,500 square-foot (sf) industrial building with excess land located at 2133 and 2143 Pontius Avenue in West Los Angeles. The transaction was record-setting for the West L.A. submarket with the highest price per square of $590 paid for an industrial building under 10,000 sf and $300 per sf for the land (per CoStar records.)
Avison Young Principals Patrick Barnes, Chris Maling and David Maling who are based in the company’s downtown Los Angeles office, along with John DeGrinis of Newmark Knight Frank, represented the seller, a private investor from California. The buyer, a private investor from West Los Angeles was represented by David Kamran of Diva Real Estate Group.
“This property is in one of the most desirable commercial/industrial areas of West L.A. because of the zoning and location,” said Barnes. “Its proximity to the 405 and 10 freeways via W. Olympic Boulevard and accessibility to a vast array of Westside area amenities, made this a record-setting transaction.”
Barnes added, “Despite the COVID-19 crisis, we executed the closing on this transaction with an essential automotive industry business owner who has an immediate need for the property.”
The property and excess land are situated on a .3-acre land parcel. Built in 1948, the building features a high clear span, bow truss design with sufficient loading and power, warehouse skylights and 14’ minimum ceiling height. It was formerly occupied by an auto repair shop who recently vacated.
