Beverly Blvd. Store Sells for $36.2 Million

The Beverly Boulevard building that houses Luminaire, the Miami-based furniture, and lighting store, has been sold for $36.2 million.

The sale was first reported by the Real Deal, the Los Angeles real estate news website. The 21,000-square-foot store is located at 8840 Beverly Blvd. at North Clark Street.

The Real Deal cites brokerage firm Cushman & Wakefield in stating that “leasing activity in West Hollywood’s Design District and Abbot Kinney Boulevard surpassed the Beverly Hills Golden Triangle in the first half of the year.”

It also says that commercial rents on Melrose Place, which is just outside the southern border of West

Hollywood, are as high as $240 per square foot/per year.

The property was sold by Michael Shabani’s Crown Equity and Dune Real Estate Partners, who had acquired it three years ago for $20.9 million. It was purchased by James Randall, who made his fortune with an aerospace rivet manufacturing company known as Allfast Fastening Systems.

The Real Deal reports that Randall and his wife Eleanor have paid more than $46 million for a Bel Air mansion known as Liongate and have a $14 million second home in Big Sky, Montana.

What a gorgeous building. Good taste.
Thank God the $36 million was there, or…

A DEVELOPER WOULD YEAR IT DOWN AND SUPER SIZE A NEW BIG TALL PROJECT.

Geee, you don’t think that’s why they paid $36 million dollars???????????

How astute!

The neighborhood has nowhere to go but up!

Hi City Council!…… do you think you allowed a trend to start with the Townscape Project? The planner helped sell it to the council hook, line and sinker.

The question is, who is working for who?

Maybe you should vent some of that anger at Faring… they seem to be the company that’s buying up the neighborhood and destroying it with ugly buildings and ridiculous rents.

Great idea. Big RICH developers are people too. An individual resident who doesn’t live anywhere near this building, may be just the person a mega developer would want to hear from to make sure they don’t overbuild the site.

Being NOT a NIMBY, maybe they will pay for me to consult

Uber rich are always so loose with their money.

I don’t get why these properties are so expensive. It is mind-blowing.
