Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $80 Million Sale of Southern California Residential Tower

The Vue in San Pedro marks first major multifamily sale in Los Angeles market in 2011

LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle today announced the firm has finalized the first major sale of a multifamily residential offering in the Los Angeles market this year with the closing of The Vue in San Pedro for a foreign bank.  San Francisco-based Carmel Partners purchased the 16-story, 318-unit residential tower for $80.1 million.  Built in 2008, the property was phased into an apartment community in 2009.  Individuals own 24 of the property’s units, and the remaining 294 are rental units.
Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction were Vice President Javier Rivera, and Managing Directors David Young, Jeff Morris and Denny St. Romain.

“Built just three years ago, The Vue in San Pedro is an extremely high-quality property in an affluent trade area with a growing population base and the sale is one of the top apartment sales in the Los Angeles market for 2011,” said Rivera.  “Carmel Partners’ purchase will enable them to capitalize on exposure in one of Los Angeles’ most vibrant communities.” 

The Vue in San Pedro is located on a 2.5-acre parcel of land, with waterfront views on three sides of the property.  Just blocks from San Pedro’s Grand Promenade, the property is located between Long Beach and the South Bay, with access to Interstates 110 and 710.  The Vue offers modern fitness, entertainment and business resident centers, and a resort quality pool with spa, sundeck and cabanas.  A professional third-party management company administers the Homeowner Association’s management of common areas maintenance and upkeep.
