This Week's LA Deal Sheet
A Del Taco property (2060 S La Cienega Blvd) near Kaiser Permanente in West LA just sold in an all-cash deal. Bisnow caught up with Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors SVP Jeremy McChesney, who repped the seller, to get the details.
The purchase price was $2.5M or $1,386/SF.
Jeremy (pictured here with his two sons) says buyers focused on quality coupled with the current lack of inventory means the single-tenant net-leased investment sales market should remain strong.
He says this is especially true for "well-located properties in primary markets occupied by a national or regional credit tenant.”
The 1,804 SF Del Taco building was built in 1965 on a 0.24-acre lot at the hard-corner signalized intersection of La Cienega Boulevard and Cadillac Avenue. It is open around the clock and was remodeled in 2004.
Del Taco has nine years remaining on its original lease term guaranteed by a one-unit Del Taco franchisee, according to Jeremy. The lease includes four five-year options to extend with increases.
The seller was a private investor from Orange County. Coldwell Banker Commercial's Shah Noorvash repped the buyer, a local family trust.
Lankershim Media Center Associates sold a 60,087 SF office complex in North Hollywood for $13M to Blueprint Post Production.

The buyer plans to take up to 60% of the property to use as a post-production space for its entertainment industry clients. The company was already the largest tenant at the property before the sale.
Charles Dunn Co senior managing director Stacy Vierheilig-Fraser repped seller Lankershim Media Center Associates, an entity of LS Capital. Vierheilig-Fraser also repped Blueprint Post Production.
