December 03, 2018

LOS ANGELES—Dec. 3, 2018 – JLL’s Capital Markets experts have completed the off-market sale of The Balcony at Beverwil, a 71,184-square-foot shopping center anchored by a Ralphs grocery store and a CVS pharmacy at the corner of Pico Boulevard and Beverwil Drive in Los Angeles. The buyer was Asana Partners, a retail real estate firm focused on dense, urban markets across the country.

Executive Vice President Geoff Tranchina led the team handling the sale on behalf of the seller, a private partnership.

“This property’s strong credit tenant base and position in a highly sought-after trade area with limited competition created a very attractive investment opportunity for Asana Partners,” said Tranchina. “Known for investing in premier locations closely connected to their surrounding communities, Asana will enhance the overall customer experience at the property, showcasing its prominent location at the intersection of Pico Blvd and Beverwil Drive.”

The Balcony at Beverwil was built in 1996 and sits at the gateway to the popular Pico-Roberston neighborhood between Beverly Hills and Beverlywood. The fully leased, two-story center has underground parking for 262 vehicles. Ralphs occupies the entire ground floor with CVS, One West Bank and six other tenants occupying the second floor balcony space.
