Investment Summary

This is an opportunity to invest in the acquisition and pre-development of two commercial lots totaling approximately 13,500 SF of land located between the Hollywood and Koreatown neighborhoods of Los Angeles. The site is on the corner of Melrose and Oxford Avenues and currently consists of two single-family homes and one commercial mixed-use building. The sponsor, Index Real Estate, purchased the property for $2,100,000 and plans to go through an entitlement process to increase the amount of density allowed before ultimately developing a 30+ unit apartment building on the site.

Market Summary

The Koreatown submarket is an up and coming area just west of the downtown of Los Angeles that has a large amount of restaurant and retail space. Koreatown is one of the most popular and hip neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Following the 1992 riots, the neighborhood was burned out and suffered significantly as a result. The neighborhood did not start to turn around until the late 90s when Korean investors started buying property as a way to protect cash investments during the Asian Financial Crisis. Since then, the neighborhood has continued to grow.
