Value add / redevelopment opportunity for Class A office asset

April 27, 2020

LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2020 JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has completed the sale of 101 S. Marengo, a 315,000-square-foot, Class A office asset in Pasadena, California.

JLL represented the seller and procured the buyer in this transaction.

101 S. Marengo Avenue is located on a 2.88-acre transit-oriented site just one block from the LA Metro Gold line and in close proximity to numerous freeways, including the Pasadena (110), Ventura (134) and Foothill (210) Freeways that provide east and west access to the greater Los Angeles area. Originally built in 1974, 101 S. Marengo was occupied for many decades by a single tenant that vacated in 2019, and now offers the potential to fully renovate the building and create one of the premier office buildings in the Tri-Cities.

Additionally, with a Walk Score® of 98, 101 S. Marengo is steps from Old Town Pasadena, a 22-block area with numerous dining, retail and entertainment outlets, as well as Paseo Colorado, an outdoor lifestyle destination with top-tier shopping, dining and entertainment featuring Archlight Cinemas, Equinox, Yard House and P.F. Changs, among others.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Michael Leggett, Managing Director Andrew Harper, Director Will Poulsen and Managing Director Patrick Church with the JLL leasing team.
