Congratulations to all who own land west of the 405 freeway…prices are still escalating. You your portfolios are still rocking!
 1223-1231 16th St aerial.jpg Commercial Real Estate Information Service reports that Randall Miller of Arnon Development Group purchased a .69-acre parcel in Santa Monica from Arnold Porath of Spruce Realty Group for $13.25 million, or about $19.23 million per acre. 

Miller plans to build a three-story, 50,000-square-foot medical center on the $30,000 s.f. parcel located at 1223 16th St. across from the new UCLA hospital, just south of Wilshire Blvd.

Previously, the property held a multi-family building with 3,534 SF of rentable building area.  No one tried to landmark the site, and apparently there are no questionable trees located there, so there were no societal obstacles to hold up the sale.

Miller is already working with the gracious planning department for the City of Santa Monica to obtain approvals and permits for the proposed building. The ground break is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2009. No word yet on how environmentally friendly the property will be…but we’re hoping for an LEED certified building so SM holds to their Net Zero by 2020 vision (without supplying subsidies). 

Those in the know say the building will feature surgery, imaging, outpatient, clinical and medical laboratory capabilities and subterranean parking. Medical buildings requires 1 parking space for every 350 sq.ft. of medical space. The completion date is scheduled for 2Q  2010.

  1. California million-dollar home sales plunged last year to their lowest level in five years, the result of a bone-dry mortgage market for prestige-home financing, as well as a decline in the value of many homes just over the million-dollar threshold, a real estate information service reported.

    A total of 24,436 Golden State homes sold for a million dollars or more last year. That was down 42.5 percent from 42,506 in 2007. It was the lowest sales count since 20,595 were sold in 2003. In 2006 the $1 million-plus total was 50,010, in 2005 it was 54,773, and in 2004 it was 36,990, according to MDA DataQuick.

    Of last year’s sub-$1 million sales, at least 2,052 homes had previously sold for more than a million. One in sixteen homes sold for a million dollars or more last year; the year before it was one in nine.

    “Discretionary spending in the housing market has pretty much been on hold the past fifteen months. The core of last year’s distress was clearly in affordable areas that had a lot of turnover in 2005 and 2006. That distress could migrate up the price ladder if this recession proves nasty for high-income households,” said John Walsh, DataQuick president. “A lot of home sales in the upper half of the market have been on hold for months, waiting for financing.”

  2. virtually every major initiative from Villaraigosa has been a dismal failure; from a poorly executed program to plant more trees to a subsidized drive to refashion downtown Los Angeles into a mini-Manhattan. Instead of reforming a generally miserable business climate, Villaraigosa has fixated on fostering “elegant density” through massive new residential construction. This gambit has failed miserably, with downtown property values plunging at least 35% since their peak. Many “luxury” condominiums there, as well as elsewhere in the city, remain largely unoccupied or have turned into rentals.

  3. Love you SM info.

  4. Introduced earlier this year as a concept, LEED 2009 will be a significant evolution of the existing rating systems for commercial buildings. It will incorporate a series of technical advancements in improving energy efficiency, reducing carbon emissions and other environmental and human health benefits. It will also incorporate regional credits–extra points that have been identified as priorities within a project’s given environmental zone–as well as a re-weighting of credits to reflect climate change and energy efficiency as priorities. The current qualification system ranges from a minimum of 26 points for certification to 69 points for Platinum status; LEED 2009, by contrast, will be a 100-point system that integrates life-cycle assessments and various sector-oriented credits into one overall system.

  5. Subject: David Joseph Kennelly House


    I read with great interest your historical inventory of early Santa Monica Landmark Properties, especially the profile of the First Roy Jones Home, when it was located at 1007 Ocean Avenue, because it makes reference to the residence of Captain David Joseph Kennelly being under construction in 1894. Do you know of any information or photographs of the Kennelly house? I am working on a biography of Captain Kennelly and his family who were all quite famous. I have a photograph of Captain Kennelly.

    Please contact me.
