The office building sits on 3.08 acres and is immediately adjacent to US Highway 101 in the growing 101 Technology Corridor. Briarwood is 90.5% leased to a professional roster of business, engineering and medical tenants.
Zaya Younan, Chairman and CEO of Younan Properties commented on the transaction. “This was an exceptional opportunity to expand our portfolio in the greater Los Angeles area by acquiring a stabilized asset in a very strong submarket that is demonstrating significant growth. Because of our resources, our reputation as an experienced owner/operator and our ability to close deals quickly, we are able to take advantage of these opportunities. We have made three acquisitions in 2013 and we are prepared to execute several more transactions before year end."
Sean Fulp, Managing Director at Rockwood Real Estate Advisors represented the seller, CW Capital. "This was another seamless transaction with Younan Properties and another case where multiple buyers were interested in acquiring this asset. Younan has established solid reputation as an experienced buyer, and sellers know that the transaction will be handled smoothly, " he said.
Younan added, " While we were under contract to acquire the property, the occupancy increased from 90% to 97%, which underscores the value of this investment."
The two-story Briarwood building is located on West Hillcrest Drive. A soaring two-story atrium allows for abundant natural light in a park-like setting that features mature landscaping. The building offers tenants 268 underground and surface parking spaces.
