Jones Lang LaSalle Closes Sale of Giorgio Armani Building in Beverly Hills

Jenel Management purchases 9533 Brighton Way from GLL Real Estate Partners

LOS ANGELES, May 1, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Capital Markets experts today announced the firm has closed the sale of 9533 Brighton Way, an 18,205-square-foot retail and office building within the famed Golden Triangle district of Beverly Hills, on behalf of GLL Real Estate Partners. Jenel Management purchased the building, which is fully leased to Giorgio Armani.

Managing Director Michael Zietsman and Vice President Patrick Inglis led the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction.

“This offering provided an outstanding opportunity to purchase a prominent retail and office center located in a prime, high-end retail district,” said Zietsman.  “Further, the building possesses significant upside potential through increased rents to a level more in line with today’s market rates.  It is also well positioned to return to multi-tenant occupancy, should Armani decide not to renew.”

“Beverly Hills is one of the most desirable retail markets in the world,” added Inglis.  “Demand for ground-level retail space in the Golden Triangle far exceeds the limited space available.  Combined with its prime location and value add opportunity, investor interest was quite strong for this rare asset.”

Located between Rodeo and Camden Drives, 9533 Brighton Way occupies one of the largest storefronts in Beverly Hills, spanning more than a half-city block.  Originally built in 1930, the building underwent renovations in 1991 and 2001.
