$25 Million Portfolio on Ocean Front Walk in the Press

Looks like the agents for the “Gingerbread” properties are starting to push them in the press, an “exclusive” story showing up today on GlobeSt that the three mixed use properties and parking lot are for sale with the asking price of 25 million. The properties are the same ones that Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko was rumored to be purchasing in 2010.

Ocean Front Walk

From GlobeSt:

The portfolio includes three mixed-use properties and one 19,000-square-foot parking/open-air retail lot for potential development. The properties are all located along the Venice Beach boardwalk and include 511 Ocean Front Walk, a three-story apartment building with ground-floor retail; 517 Ocean Front Walk, a two-parcel complex known as the Gingerbread Court, consisting of seven buildings containing ground-floor retail and second-floor office space; 523 Ocean Front Walk, also known as the Blu House, a beach bungalow with coastal and city permits for a variety of uses including residential, restaurant and retail; and 601 Ocean Front Walk, a commercially zoned vacant parcel totaling approximately 19,800 square feet, with current coastal entitlements in place for a mixed-use food court/retail building. The latter property is currently being used as a parking lot with open-air retail on the boardwalk.

Richard Ringer, a first VP investments in Marcus & Millichap’s West Los Angeles office, is representing the seller. “This is a rare opportunity to acquire over 300 feet of irreplaceable beachfront real estate with unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean along Ocean Front Walk,” said Ringer in a prepared statement. “This unique offering in the heart of Silicon Beach will attract interest from a variety of local and foreign investors and from potential owner-users in the high-tech and entertainment industries.”

Ringer tells GlobeSt.com that the Venice submarket is “perhaps the strongest market in all of Los Angeles. It’s a very hot market for all property types.”
