Jones Lang LaSalle Closes $45 Million Sale of El Segundo Office Building

Mattel Global Design Center triple-net, long-term leased to Mattel, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5, 2012 — On behalf of Kilroy Realty Corporation, Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of 2031 E. Mariposa Ave. in the Los Angeles submarket of El Segundo.  The 192,053-square-foot office building is 100 percent triple-net leased to Mattel, Inc. through 2026.  It serves as the company’s Global Design Center.  AG Net Lease Fund II, an affiliate of Angelo, Gordon & Co. purchased the property for $45 million.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Managing Directors Bob Prendergast and Lynn LaChapelle and Vice President Baker Morphy led the team on this transaction, while Executive Vice President Sam Foster provided market and leasing guidance.

“This property proved highly desirable to a whole host of investors who understood the appeal of a stabilized asset leased to a credit tenant in one of the strongest, high barrier-to-entry markets in the Los Angeles region,” said Prendergast.  “AG Net Lease Fund II made a strategic investment that will pay considerable dividends in the future.”

The 2031 E. Mariposa Ave. site consists of nearly 10 acres on a flag-shaped lot.  It was originally constructed in the 1950’s as a distribution building and includes a sizeable loading area and abundant space for parking and trailer storage.  Mattel has occupied the property for more than 21 years and has invested considerable capital to upgrade it.  El Segundo is Mattel’s global headquarters and the company occupies nearly 720,000 square feet in the immediate area.  The property is contiguous to three adjacent buildings that are also occupied by Mattel, giving the company a “campus” configuration.
