The international buyer was a large scale developer of residential mixed use projects in Canada and Los Angeles and purchased this property to take advantage of the rapid redevelopment of the Culver City area sparked in large part to the improved economy and high demand for housing spurred on by the Expo Metro Light Rail line extension from Culver City to Santa Monica. The developer has plans for approx. 100 apartments over first level retail and subterranean parking. Kennedy Wilson negotiated a new lease with the existing tenant whereby they could continue to operate in this location until such time that the developer is ready to pull permits. The sale closed for all cash in Jan. 2016 for $12,750,000 ($351/SF of land area).
