Starting with #5...

5. LOS ANGELES: The Coffee Bean Headquarters
1941-1949 & 1959 S. La Cienega Blvd, along with 1956 Chariton St.
Los Angeles, CA 90034
$14 million

Price per square foot: $549.39
Years completed: 1962/1989 & 1950 & 1929, respectively
Category: Mixed (Office & Residential)

Coffee Bean’s world headquarters are for sale, since they are moving to a larger facility. The sale is unusual since it includes a single-family house adjacent to the larger office buildings, spelling a good owner / user opportunity. The property would be ideal for investors who want a highly-trafficked location, easy access to the 10/405, frontage along busy La Cienega Boulevard and income from the billboard on site.

4. MALIBU: Multifamily Buildings
6453 Sycamore Meadows Dr., Malibu, CA 90265
$14 million



Listing Broker: Miller & Desatnik Realty
Total space: 11,854 sq. ft.
Price per square foot: $1,181.04  (Price per unit: $1,166,667)
Year completed: 1957
Category: Multifamily

This 12-unit Malibu apartment complex is situated on approximately 3.4 acres of ocean view land. The property is only a street-crossing away from Escondido Beach, boasting an enviable location. Apartments can be renovated, redeveloped for condos or a residential estate. The listing price of the property is definitely due to the relatively high cost of land in Malibu. If and when sold, the apartments would be one of the most expensive multifamily properties sold in LA County, in terms of price per unit.

$15 million


Listing Broker: Madison Partners & LA Realty Partners

Boasting convenient access to the 405 freeway and the Van Nuys Airport, the building is situated on almost 100,000 sq. ft. of land.

The San Dimas Corporate Park is a suburban business complex located in San Dimas, CA – 25 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles. As in any suburb commercial development, the property has plenty of surface parking – 264 spaces to be exact. According to CoStar, all two floors of the building are vacant, so it may be a great owner/user opportunity.

Stillwater Investment Group bought this building (as well as San Dimas Corporate Center - #2 on this list) just last month and is apparently looking to flip this property very quickly. The complex is nearby the 210/57 highway intersection, allowing for convenient travel in all directions. Like #2, both of the building’s floors are vacant. At $19.7 million, the WesCorp building is the most expensive listing in LA County so far in March.
