JUNE 27, 2022 – Tishman Speyer today announced the sale of 555 Aviation Boulevard, a 260,000 square-foot creative office campus for $205.5 million ($790 per square foot). 

Tishman Speyer acquired 555 Aviation, located in Los Angeles’ popular El Segundo market, in 2015 for $45 million with the intent to convert the aging, single-story distribution and repair facility into a best-in-class, creative office environment. After its sole user, Xerox, vacated the building in 2017, Tishman Speyer embarked on a $44 million reinvention program that produced light-filled interior spaces accented by large windows, a state-of-the-art fitness center, cafe, and multiple outdoor gathering areas. The campus is now fully leased to Belkin International, Publicis and Fabletics. 

This is Tishman Speyer’s second major office disposition in California over the past month. On June 9, the firm announced the sale of its Sunnyvale office campus in Silicon Valley.  Acquired vacant in 2021, Tishman Speyer successfully leased the 719,037 square-foot, four-building campus in its entirety to Meta in less than one year. Its subsequent sale to CommonWealth Partners garnered the highest price ever for an office property in Silicon Valley, according to Newmark.

“With both 555 Aviation and Sunnyvale, we seized the opportunity to acquire well-located assets and reimagine them to serve the next generation of customers,” said Tishman Speyer CEO Rob Speyer. “These recent sales speak to the success of our repositioning strategies and the enduring appeal of collaborative, highly-amenitized office environments.”

Tishman Speyer Senior Managing Director Paul DeMartini added, “555 Aviation serves as a prime example of Tishman Speyer’s expertise in unlocking the full human potential of the built environment for the long-term benefit of our customers and co-investors.”

The Los Angeles office of Cushman & Wakefield represented Tishman Speyer in the transaction.
