Artisan Realty Advisors teams up with Starwood Capital Group to acquire Continental+Grand

Artisan Realty Advisors is pleased to announce the acquisition of Continental + Grand, a 490,000 square foot mid-rise creative office campus located on 8.7 acres of land in El Segundo, the South Bay’s premier business district.  The acquisition was made in partnership with Starwood Capital Group, one of the largest real estate private equity firms in the world.  Known for its concentration of aerospace and defense companies in past cycles, the new El Segundo market has seen an influx of entertainment, media, advertising, apparel and technology companies attracted by the area's burgeoning amenity base, central location, and proximity to high-quality schools and housing in the Beach Cities.   Continental + Grand is able to offer today's high-density users ample parking ratios as well as a short walk to the Metro Green and Crenshaw light rail lines connecting to Downtown and West LA.  Artisan Realty Advisors is in the planning stages of an extensive renovation which will enhance the campus' amenity offerings including an expanded and renovated fitness center, further activation of the central courtyard through the addition of a tenant lounge and an improved cafe, creation of shared conferencing facilities, and upgrades to the elevators, lobbies, restrooms and corridors.
