This Week's LA Deal Sheet
Barry Manilow's longtime management company, Stiletto Entertainment, is singing a new tune after selling a creative warehouse in Inglewood. CBRE Group VP Izzy Eichenstein and associate Todd LaPlante brokered the sale of the 13,298 SF building in Inglewood on behalf of Stiletto Entertainment and Cruise Ship Entertainment.
Izzy (pictured above with his son) tells Bisnow although Stiletto Entertainment did not have any more use for the building at 8295 La Cienega Blvd, Inglewood is "rapidly gaining in popularity." The construction of the stadium for the LA Rams and the revamped Hollywood Park site made it a "very opportune" time for the sale, he says.
Stiletto Entertainment has since relocated to Culver City to gain more creative office space, Izzy says.
The building sits on an enclosed property, totaling 23,960 SF. About half of the building consists of office space.
The property was the headquarters for Stiletto Entertainment, which is headed by Garry Kief. The building was purchased more than 20 years ago.
Mike Diamond Plumbing, which bought the property, was attracted to its centralized location and proximity to both the West Side and the South Bay, according to Izzy.
Industry Partners Dan Pickart repped Mike Diamond Plumbing.
