JLL to handle leasing at Manhattan Beach Towers

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIF., Oct. 6, 2015 – Vancouver, Canada-based Onni Group, one of North America’s leading private real estate developers, has acquired Manhattan Beach Towers, a two building, 309,705-square-foot Class A office complex located at 1230 and 1240 Rosecrans Avenue in Manhattan Beach, California for $95 million. 

Onni Group is in the process of finalizing plans for a renovation which will include an innovative amenity floor that provides a unique work environment for a wide array of office users. The amenity floor will include an Onni Wifi Lounge, gym and first-class changing rooms and shower facilities to enhance the Manhattan Beach lifestyle. Onni plans to build first class spec suites offering exposed ceilings, polished concrete and innovative collaboration space.

Leading the leasing efforts for the property are JLL Managing Director Steve Solomon, Vice President Jason Fine and Associate Kristen Bowman. Manhattan Beach Towers is able to accommodate a variety of requirements ranging from approximately 1,500 to 128,000 square feet of contiguous space.

“Manhattan Beach Towers is an office complex in the Rosecrans Corridor that, following the renovation, will be South Bay's crown jewel for Southern California firms looking for premier space,” said Solomon. “The project is surrounded by the South Bay’s most exciting new projects and developments. MBT is directly adjacent to The Pointe, El Segundo’s newest dining and entertainment center, Manhattan Village, currently undergoing major upgrades, less than a mile to the recently proposed Top Golf at The Lakes at El Segundo and just a 5 minute bike ride from a morning surf in Manhattan Beach. Onni Group is bringing fun to the office by renovating Manhattan Beach Towers to meet the needs of today’s live-work lifestyle in one of the world’s greatest beach cities.”

Located just minutes from the San Diego (I-405) Freeway and Los Angeles International Airport, Manhattan Beach Towers offers efficient floorplates, large courtyard, subterranean parking and views of Downtown Los Angeles and Palos Verdes. The office complex is located near transportation corridors providing immediate access to Southern California communities like Santa Monica, Venice, and Playa Vista.
