Offering Details 

Newmark and RI Marketplace are pleased to present the opportunity to acquire the fee-simple interest in 245-261 E 157th Street in Gardena, California (the “Property”). The offering consists of a 77% leased, 70,546-square-foot, multi-tenant, industrial project located in the highly sought-after South Bay area of Los Angeles. The Gardena submarket continues to be extremely tight and boasted a 2.1% vacancy rate as of Q3 2021.

The Property consists of two concrete-tilt industrial buildings that total 70,546 square feet and are situated on a 2.86-acre parcel. The buildings are extremely functional and feature 19’ to 22’ clear heights with 15 ground level doors and two dock-high doors. The project features above average parking at a ratio of 2.3/1,000 SF, and the largest tenant at the property is 50% below market, presenting a huge amount of upside at lease expiration.

The offering presents an extremely rare, value-add opportunity for an investor to acquire a well-located, infill, industrial deal with huge upside that can be achieved by leasing up the in-place vacancy and rolling tenants to market upon lease expiration, with in-place rents more than 30% below market. The property is expected to trade at an extremely attractive basis compared to similar product that has been selling in the mid $200 per-square-foot range, with user sales climbing closer to $300/SF.
