Lakers to Buy Space at Future Elevon Development in El Segundo 
The Lakers have agreed to purchase an undeveloped five-acre parcel within the Elevon at Campus El Segundo development. Elevon will be a 15-building office campus.
EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. -- The Los Angeles Lakers have agreed to purchase an undeveloped five-acre parcel within the Elevon at Campus El Segundo development. The purchase price was not disclosed. The site is located at the northwest corner of Mariposa Avenue and Douglas Street in the Los Angeles submarket of El Segundo. 
 
The team will construct a new training facility, which will also serve the NBA Development League's Los Angeles D-Fenders, at the site. Additionally, the complex will house the teams' business operations. 
 
Elevon will be a 15-building office campus with about 210,000 square feet of for-sale creative office buildings. It will also feature 13,500 square feet of leasable dining and retail space. The development broke ground last November and is slated for completion in the fourth quarter of this year. 
 
Elevon, which will reportedly cost $97 million, is located within Campus El Segundo, a 46.5-acre, mixed-use property. It is situated less than a block from the 405 and 105 freeways.
 
Continental Development Corporation and its partner, Mar Ventures Inc., are developing Elevon. CBRE's Bill Bloodgood and Bob Healey will handle the office sales, while JLL's Steve Solomon and Carl Muhlstein will oversee build-to-suit opportunities. 
 
"Elevon will provide companies the rare opportunity to take full control over their own space in the new El Segundo," says Solomon. "The region continues to transform into a hub for creativity and innovation."

Quantum Capital Partners Arranges
$22M Recapitalization for LA Portfolio
The five-property retail portfolio is located in Downtown Los Angeles' Fashion District.
LOS ANGELES -- Quantum Capital Partners has arranged a $22 million recapitalization for a five-property retail portfolio in downtown Los Angeles' Fashion District. The borrower was a locally based real estate investment consortium. 
 
Financing was composed of individual loans ranging in size from $1.1 million to $8.4 million, among which was a three-year, second-trust deed mortgage with an interest rate of 4.5 percent. The remaining permanent loans each featured seven-year terms with fixed interest rates of 4 percent for five years. Three different off-shore lenders provided the financing. 
 
Jonathan Hakakha led the Quantum Capital Partners team that arranged the loans. Quantum was tasked with finding and structuring the appropriate debt on each asset that would best meet the individual partnerships' specific requirements. 
 
"For example, the existing loan securing one of the assets had a significant prepayment penalty that prohibited the sponsor from taking cash out to acquire another asset," says Hakakha. "We found a lender willing to quickly provide a short-term second mortgage at a very low rate that would allow the borrower to take advantage of the small window of opportunity."

Kuehne + Nagel Leases Distribution Facility in Casa Grande
Kuehne + Nagel's new facility is located adjacent to Interstate 10, halfway between Phoenix and Tucson.
CASA GRANDE, ARIZ. -- Kuehne + Nagel has signed a five-year lease for 201,666 square feet of warehouse and distribution space in Casa Grande. The facility is located at 2592 E. Hanna Road. 
 
The global logistics company's new space sits adjacent to Interstate 10. Pat Harlan, Steve Sayre and Kyle Westfal of JLL represented the landlord, Clarion Partners, in the negotiations. 
 
"For the right users, Pinal County definitely offers an alternative to the high costs of Southern California industrial space," says Harlan. "Creating an inland port environment in and around Casa Grande -- halfway between Phoenix and Tucson -- would allow companies to move their products from California's ports directly to a more cost-effective, inland location, then on to the rest of the U.S."
