The LA Deal Sheet
With plans to expand, Burbank City Federal Credit Union has purchased a 9,410 SF office building a block from PHSF Realty LLC for $3.75M.
The building, at 1918 West Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank, attracted heavy interest from potential buyers, Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura Managing Director Scott Romick said.
Romick and Stephen Geiger of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura represented the seller. Kyle Barratt and Gerard Poutier of CBRE represented the buyer.
The two-story property was fully leased with six tenants on short-term leases. Romick said within 10 days he received 20 potential buyers.
“We anticipated getting a strong response to this offering because of its location and size, which fits right in the sweet spot of office demand in this area,” he said. “But we were still a little surprised at the extent of the demand and were very pleased with the final sale price, which was very close to our listing price.”
The $400/SF deal is above the median sale price for office buildings in the San Fernando Valley. In the third quarter, office buildings in the area were selling for $271/SF, up from $211/SF the previous year.
