Leased Fee Land Parcels at One, Two California Plaza in Los Angeles Sell for $100M
LOS ANGELES — An undisclosed buyer has acquired two ground lease investments at One and Two California Plaza at a public sale for more than $100 million. The leased-fee land parcels, which include six acres underneath the office property, were offered for public sale in conjunction with the liquidation of 52 assets held by CRA/LA.
One California Plaza is a 42-story office tower and six-level subterranean parking garage at 300 S. Grand Ave. Notable tenants include AECOM, Skadden Arps, Morgan Lewis, Nixon Peabody and Bank of the West.
Two California Plaza is a 52-story office building with a 44,000-square-foot retail plaza and a six-level subterranean parking garage at 350 S. Grand Ave. Tenants include Mayer Brown, Constellation New Energy, Merrill Lynch, Reliance Steel, Mizuho Bank, BlackRock and the Consulate General of Japan.
The full CRA/LA portfolio contained a total of 52 commercial and residential properties located in Los Angeles urban infill districts like downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and the North Hollywood Arts District. The initial disposition began July 15, 2015.
The sale of CRA/LA properties represents the conclusion of a legislative mandate to terminate redevelopment agencies across California. Other primary assets involved in the public disposition included the ArcLight Hollywood Parking Structure, which recently sold for $50 million.
Marc Renard, Manfred Schaub and Jimmy Chai of Cushman & Wakefield served as the exclusive advisor to the CRA/LA for the portfolio.
