Private Real Estate Investment Firm, Cohen Asset Management, Acquires 42,000-Square-foot Flex Property in El Segundo, CA  

El Segundo, California (9/16/2008)

Cohen Asset Management, Inc., a Los Angeles-based private real estate investment firm, on behalf of CAM Core+ Fund 1 LLC, entered into a strategic joint venture with Heartland Investments, a subsidiary of NSB, Inc., to acquire 2355 Utah Avenue, a 42,000-square-foot multi industrial flex property located in El Segundo, CA.

The infill location has an industrial availability of less than 5% and has long been the location of choice for defense-related industries in Southern California. The changing economic landscape and zoning overlays has brought creative office space users to El Segundo, creating repositioning opportunities for existing industrial assets.

Cohen Asset Management, Inc., a private real estate investment firm, acquired 2355 Utah Avenue because it provides an excellent opportunity for the value-add active asset management that the CAM Core+ Fund 1 LLC is well known for. The property is being repositioned and will become part of a larger multi-tenant creative office campus being developed by the joint venture.
