NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has arranged $52 million in acquisition financing for Van Nuys Industrial Park, a fully leased, value-add, business park comprising four buildings totaling 84,346 square feet and two land parcels in the Los Angeles-area community of Van Nuys, California.
JLL worked on behalf of the borrower, Boston-based Longpoint Realty Partners, to place the three-year, floating-rate, non-recourse acquisition loan with Prime Finance.
Van Nuys Industrial Park is home to six tenants in the telecommunications, health services, non-profit, trucking and logistics, car distribution and agriculture machinery and equipment distribution industries. The four light industrial buildings were constructed between 1963 and 1974, with the two land parcels totaling 3.87 acres are used as outdoor storage lots for automobiles and truck trailers.
Positioned on 11.75 acres, the properties are at 16300-16210, 16251, 16201, 16141 and 16161 Raymer St. and 8085 Woodley Ave. in a strategic, infill location in the San Fernando Valley with access to major transportation corridors and critical logistical hubs. The property is adjacent to the Van Nuys Airport and within 25 miles of both Burbank and Los Angeles International Airports. The area also has easy connectivity to the I-405 and 101 Freeways and Interstates 5, 210 and 10, along with the BNSF Los Angeles Junction Railway and the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, which are both 42 miles away.
Van Nuys Industrial Park is within the Greater San Fernando Valley Industrial submarket, which, according to JLL Research, had the most absorption of any region in Los Angeles in the first quarter of 2022. Total vacancy in the submarket is 1.8 percent. Only 236,865 square feet of new space delivered since the first of the year, which included several new developments that were all pre-leased.
The JLL Capital Markets team that represented the borrower was led by Senior Managing Director Greg Brown and Director Peter Thompson.
