$40M FOR ONE OF THE LARGEST MULTI-USE TENANT CAMPUSES IN SOCAL
Koll/PER, a partnership of the Newport Beach-based Koll Co. and the Public Employee Retirement System of Idaho, has acquired the 313,367-sf College Business Park from the Newport Beach-based Wohl Investment Co. for $39.9 million. The property consists of 17 single-story industrial, office and flex buildings in a 24.55-acre business park that straddles the county line between Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties in Upland, CA.
College Business Park is situated at the northeast intersection of Foothill Boulevard and Monte Vista Avenue. The county line traverses through the property along Monte Vista.
According to Armando Enriquez, acquisitions manager for Koll Co., the investment firm was attracted to the property by its “exceptional location in a strong market area, great visibility, outstanding curb appeal and functional site layout.”
The concrete tilt-up buildings at College Business Park range from 13,369 to 22,426 sf, with tenant sizes ranging from 600 sf to 14,000 sf. The project comprises more than 200 suites, with 13 of its buildings offering small-unit warehouse and flex space with varying percentages of office-build-out. The other four buildings include 100% build-out. With 1,067 total parking stalls, the project has a parking ratio of 3.4 spaces per 1,000 sf of building space.
Enriquez notes that the property is one of the largest multi-tenant business campuses in Southern California, providing the flexibility of offering 100% office build-out and flex and industrial space in one project. This variety of product appeals to a diverse set of tenant types and the diversification “helps limit risk exposure to any one tenant type,” Enriquez says.
Lack of available large land parcels coupled with high land prices, creates barriers of entry that may minimize, if not prevent, future development of comparable properties nearby.
