Among the 5 active listings in the Playa Vista condo resale market today, at least two of the sellers already received multiple offers. Should there be no immediate new inventory on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service,) this week may have the lowest level of available listings for sale since Playa Vista was built in 2003!
This week, the Los Angeles Real Estate News website, The Real Deal, reported “Rockwood Capital is in talks to buy The Water’s Edge campus in Playa Vista.” The campus is currently home to Electronic Arts and LA Fitness, which consists of two buildings. Additionally, the purchase includes plans to develop a possible third building. In the past year, Rockwood has aggressively acquired two major properties already in Silicon Beach. I found it interesting that the pending sale price for the 260,000-square-foot campus is roughly $190 million, which translates to $735 per square foot.

Although I’ve written in the past about the inaccuracy to valuate real estate properties solely based on the average cost per square foot metric, it is interesting to compare the cost per square foot, for the sale of a commercial property in Playa Vista (even though it is just one entity) with that of condos and single family homes.
Earlier this month in my 2017 Q3 Market Report for Playa Vista Condo Resale Market, I reported the average cost per square foot among all resale condos is just over $660. Although the statistic sample size among all the single-family home resales (not including brand new homes offered by Brookfield Residential) in both Phase One and Two is very limited with just 20 closed sales this year, the average cost per square foot for all SFR resales in both phases is just under $700. That means the cost per square foot for commercial property is within 10% and does not appear very different from the cost per square foot in the condos and single-family residences in Playa Vista.
For more information about any of the new homes or other properties featured in this newsletter or this week’s open house schedule, please feel free to contact me. I am happy to offer you additional information about the community, Playa Vista Elementary School and the dynamic marketplace.
Have a fabulous weekend!
