April 14, 2021

SAN DIEGO, Apr. 14, 2021 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it closed the $2.4 million sale of 2851 Boston Ave., a nine-unit apartment community located in the Barrio Logan submarket of San Diego, California.

JLL represented the seller, WLA Investments Inc., to complete the sale to the buyer.

2851 Boston Ave. totals 7,200 rentable square feet and recently underwent extensive exterior renovations to the front entry and façade area and new wood fencing, gating, locks, signage, lighting, landscaping and windows; and interior upgrades, including stainless steel appliances and new granite countertops, hardware, fixtures, lighting and flooring. Other amenities include controlled access to the property, washer and dryers in all units and community gardens.

The property is positioned in the Barrio Logan area, which is transforming into an artsy neighborhood, being proximate to various art galleries, breweries, eateries and cafes; and is also designated as one of California’s 14 Cultural Districts.

The property poses great investment opportunity, as strong projected population growth is expected in coming years to this submarket. 2851 Boston Ave. also benefits from being less than five miles from Downtown San Diego, allowing access to the city’s employment and activity hubs.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Director Kip Malo and Director Chris Collins.
