A 99,761 square-foot office building in Echo Lake is on the market, offering potential investors the opportunity to acquire a near fully occupied asset with creative office space and ground floor retail space. Located at 1910 W. Sunset Boulevard, the property is being listed by KW Commercial, which declined to share guidance pricing for the property.

The property was last renovated in 1991 and features a mix of retail and food amenities for current tenants. Referred to commonly as the Citibank Building, the property also offers banking amenities from Citibank and is the tallest building in Echo Park. Public records show that the property is owned by the Los Angeles-based FourSquare Church, which also utilizes the property as its headquarters. 

Currently, the property is 92 percent occupied, with 8,276 square feet of rentable space remaining. However, the FourSquare Church will also be relocating from the second floor and a portion of the fourth floor upon closing the sale, the offering memorandum shows.
