Cinema Prop House Inks $27M DTLA Deal

Omega Cinema Props, Inc., the largest cinema prop house on the West Coast, leased a 245,000-square-foot industrial facility in DTLA owned by Brentwood-based Rexford Industrial Realty Inc. The $27-million, 10-year deal involves the prop house relocating later this year from a location in Hollywood that it occupied for more than 90 years.

Delphi Business Properties, Inc.’s Christopher McKenzie represented the tenant.

McKenzie notes, “the biggest challenge was finding a building that fit [Omega’s] requirement of 150,000-250,000 square feet, coupled with the fact that they needed to be in close proximity to their Hollywood location in order to ensure an easy transition for their business and clientele.”

The free-standing three-story building at 1515 E. 15th St. includes basement parking, 10 dock high doors and full HVAC on the first and second floors. The multi-level building had tremendous operational value to Omega, since the studio prop rental business favors floor space instead of racking systems.
