This Week's LA Deal Sheet
Shops On Hill in Pasadena just sold for about $13.4M.
CBRE senior associate Alex Vasquez tells Bisnow the property offers more than meets the eye.
The property at 1383 Washington Blvd has two buildings that total about 32,685 SF.
Greenbridge Investment Partners wanted to sell the property because it had completed repositioning plans that began more than three years ago.
As a result of the sale, the firm will now plan to take the proceeds and reinvest into other projects, says Alex (pictured above with his wife, Veronica).
The property is unique because it is nestled in the "captive historical neighborhoods of Bungalow Heaven and Historic Highlands," Alex tells Bisnow.
Alex says it takes up two corners of the intersection and offers "daily-use retailers" to the neighborhood.
The buyer plans to continue the "improvement and stabilization of the property," according to Alex.
Alex, CBRE first VP Ken McLeod and associate Tim Kuruzar repped the buyer and the seller.

The property is a high-end office building with solar panels, two full kitchens, steel-and-glass rolling doors and an open floor plan.

The Arclight Hollywood Parking Structure was offered for public sale in conjunction with the liquidation of 50 assets held by CRA/LA, a Designated Local Authority and successor to The Redevelopment Agency of the City of LA.
