U.S. office vacancy rate flat in first quarter: Reis

U.S. office vacancy rate was flat at 15.8 percent in the first quarter of 2017, compared with the fourth quarter of 2016, according to real estate research firm Reis Inc (REIS.O).

Asking rent rose 1.8 percent in the first quarter from the same period a year earlier, marking the slowest annual rate of office rent growth since 2011. Effective rent rose by 0.4 percent.

If the new U.S. administration simplifies or lowers tax rates, job growth could increase and spur higher growth in the office market, said Barbara Denham, senior economist at Reis.

"Overall occupancy expanded in the first quarter, but growth continued to disappoint as net absorption was the lowest since 2014," Denham said in a statement.

Net absorption, which is measured in terms of available office space sold in the market during a certain time period, plummeted more than 65 percent to 4.92 million square feet.

Construction activity slowed, with 7.94 million square feet of new office construction completed during the quarter, compared with 9.09 million square feet in the fourth quarter.

Ingenuity Studios Inks Lease in LA's Hollywood Media District

Commercial Property Executive

 

Savills Studley and Avison Young arranged a five-year lease for Ingenuity Studios for 10,000 square feet at 941 N. Highland Ave. in the Hollywood Media District of Los Angeles.

Douglas Elliman names Stephen Kotler president of western region

The Real Deal

 

Stephen Kotler’s vacation in Los Angeles is turning into more of a permanent stay.

The former CRO of Douglas Elliman has been named president of the western region, the brokerage told The Real Deal.

Kotler, who had worked out of Elliman’s New York office since 1991, stepped down from his CRO role last January to head the brokerage’s L.A. expansion, opening its West Coast headquarters at 150 El Camino Drive in Beverly Hills. It was intended to be a temporary move at the time. 

With his new title — and with Scott Durkin’s assumption of his former responsibilities as the company’s COO — Kotler can fully focus on overseeing and expanding the firm’s presence in L.A. and Aspen, Colorado, he said.

Douglas Elliman will open its second L.A. office in Malibu in late May or early June, and is eyeing areas that include Palm Springs, Brentwood and Santa Monica for its third, Kotler said.

“New Yorkers tend to migrate” to these areas, “so we go where the clients are,” said Kotler, who recently purchased a Beverly Hills home near the office.

In the last year, Elliman’s agent count in California grew from 45 to more than 110, according to the company. In Colorado, there are a total of 48 agents, with 18 recruits in the past 12 months.

“It has been hard to not have a snowplow,” Kotler said of the change in scenery. “There are less suits and ties here — it’s more L.A. showbiz, and we do a lot of filming of ‘Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles’ in the office so there are always cameras around.”

This Week's LA Deal Sheet

Bisnow

 

Retail Design Collaborative and Studio One Eleven's new 34,300 SF creative office space in downtown Long Beach was just unveiled. The retail area between Long Beach Boulevard and Pine Avenue from 3rd to 6th streets, currently known as City Place, is intentionally being unnamed.

Instead, the area will be allowed to self-identify with no official name to better become integrated into downtown Long Beach as it evolves, Shooshani Developers managing member Tony Shooshani said. The creative office project marks the first phase of the revitalization of the former City Place shopping center. The firms repurposed a former Nordstrom Rack. The new offices have just one private office for human resources, and open, collaborative space to be used by teams of employees. There are also breakout rooms that act as collaborative pods for meetings, and a mezzanine wraps the perimeter of the interior space, creating a “bridgewalk” overlook with lounges, workspaces and pin-up zones. A kitchen, open work clusters, idea lounges, a community room, a material library, a shower and lockers, and outdoor patios are also part of the design.

"The design leverages the city’s grid within the former shopping center’s footprint and will allow the area to self-identify as a multifaceted destination offering a variety of mixed-use services, including professional, residential, retail and restaurants that will serve residents and visitors alike," Shooshani said.

Additional plans for the redevelopment include two new outdoor dining parklets on 4th Street and Pine Avenue and seven new retail options and restaurants. Construction of a new 20-unit mixed-use urban development also is scheduled. The new office is in the 350K SF pedestrian-oriented shopping center off 3rd Street and Promenade North.

NEW CONSTRUCTION

Meta Housing Corp. completed the 5400 Hollywood Family Apartments, a 40-unit mixed-use affordable apartment community in East Hollywood for $21.6M. The five-story apartment building, at 1655 North Serrano Ave., will provide affordable housing for local residents. It has one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The apartment community offers best-in-class amenities, including a rooftop deck equipped with barbecue and children’s play areas, large community spaces, and a clubhouse and computer room. It was built above 3,485 SF of commercial space. It was constructed to LEED Gold certification standards.

LEASING

Avison Young negotiated three new leases totaling 18,649 SF at the newly renovated historic Woolworth building in downtown Glendale. The leases include two ground-floor restaurants, the 2,865 SF 85°C Bakery Cafe and The Halal Guys' 2,284 SF space. Shared office workspaces tenant Regus occupies the entire 13,750 SF second floor. All three just opened. Existing tenant AT&T takes up 3,500 SF. The 44K SF property is at 201 North Brand Blvd. and was built in the 1920s. It became a Woolworth store when it was remodeled in 1942. The building was placed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources 18 years ago. Avison Young principal Mark Evanoff, vice president Andrew Berk and associate Chase Gordon repped landlords Gustavo Spoliansky and Loretta Scherer, partners in LA's Bow Truss Capital. FINANCING Pembrook Capital Management provided a $7.57M first mortgage loan to complete the development of Alondra Villas, a 29-unit townhouse development at 950 West Alondra Blvd. in Compton. Neighborhood Housing Services of LA County bought the partially completed project approximately 18 months ago from the City of Compton. The Pembrook loan will allow NHS to complete the construction of the project over the next nine months and sell the units to low- and medium-income buyers.

SALES

Berkadia brokered the $20.5M sale of Plaza at Lafayette Apartments at 401 South Lafayette Park Place. The buyer was Placentia's Platinum Acquisitions. There were multiple qualified offers for the property. Plaza at Lafayette has one- and two-bedroom apartments with an average of 876 SF. Amenities include an open central courtyard with barbecue area and lounge seating, laundry facilities and a leasing center with an attached fitness center. Berkadia managing director Vince Norris exclusively listed the property for the seller and original developer, Upside Investments.

EXECUTIVE NEWS

Marketing specialist Mary Tamaki joined Avison Young's downtown LA office. She is the new vice president of marketing and communications for the firm's Southern California region. Previously, she was vice president of business development marketing for JLL.

C.W. Driver Cos. promoted project executive Paul Ruig to vice president of the greater LA region.
