HPP purchased the 59,000 square foot property located at 3100 Central Avenue in September of 2018. The property had been assembled over four decades and used by its previous owner as a manufacturing facility. HPP appreciated the zero lot line configuration of the project, which created a massive yard, but had relatively high site coverage — two characteristics that are not normally found in the same project.
HPP completely renovated the property by replacing its major systems including roof, electrical and mechanical. In addition, HPP changed the property’s cosmetic appearance which included painting the interior and exterior warehouse areas, redesigning ADA compliant parking areas and installing all new landscaping. HPP paid careful attention to sustainability measures which included the installation of state of the art energy efficient lighting. Substantial demolition was undertaken in the warehouse as well as the main office areas to create a more modern and flexible office environment.
A cost efficient exterior treatment was sought to better unify the disparate buildings in the complex. This was accomplished by utilizing an aluminized panel and corrugated steel façade that incorporated additional window lights and all new storefronts. Installed on the two main buildings, it created a consistent exterior treatment that developed a unifying identity for the project.
The property was quickly leased to two units by the same brokerage team that brought the acquisition opportunity to Hager Pacific.
