(EDITOR’S NOTE: According to documents submitted to the U.S. Securities Exchange Commission, CMCT sold an 80 percent interest in the office building to its co-investors for $34.4 million, retaining a 20 percent interest in the property through a newly formed joint venture.)

DALLAS – CMCT (NASDAQ: CMCT and TASE: CMCT) announced today that it has partnered with Kanden Realty, Taisei Corporation and a third international institutional investor to convert 4750 Wilshire Boulevard, a three-story office building in the prominent Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, into a mix of office space and luxury apartments. 

The upper two floors of the building will be converted into 68 luxury apartments, while approximately 30,000 square feet of 100% leased ground floor office will remain in place.

The renovation began in the first quarter of 2023. The makeover will bring much needed housing to an attractive community, near shopping and business centers, and just one mile from Los Angeles’ Metro D Line subway, currently under construction.

The building is designed to meet the needs of today’s professionals working in a hybrid environment. The building will feature oversized units with room for home office, a co-working area, a lounge, a high-end pool and courtyard, a fitness and yoga room, and ample underground parking with dedicated access for residents.

Conversion of 4750 Wilshire into luxury apartments aligns with CMCT’s strategy to focus the portfolio on highly amenitized premier multifamily and creative office assets in dynamic, high barrier to entry markets.

Kanden Realty, Taisei Corporation and a third institutional investor recently joined CMCT as co-investors in 4750 Wilshire. The investment by these significant institutional investors marks an expansion of CMCT’s asset-light approach, making property-level equity investments alongside co-investors.
