Avison Young Brokers $11M Sale of Historic Creative Campus in Los Angeles

Historic LA Creative Campus Sells for $11M

Redcar Properties, LLC, a Los Angeles-based development group, has purchased The Canvas @ Sunset Junction, a 35,000-square-foot creative commercial campus in a deal brokered by Avison Young. The building, located in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles and built in 1928, was specifically designed to paint backdrops for the burgeoning film industry.

Avison Young Principal John Tronson and Vice President Thor Lee represented the seller, a joint venture of Grosh Scenic Studio, Inc. & TTADA, LLC. “Our team marketed the property unpriced and conducted dozens of tours with interested developers and users,” said Lee in a news release. “Ultimately, we selected Redcar due to its impressive track record, competitive offer and familiarity with this region of Los Angeles.” Redcar is planning a full renovation.

Key architectural features of The Canvas @ Sunset Junction include extremely high bow truss, clear span ceilings with dozens of skylights and exposed wood beams. The purchase also includes an adjacent parking lot.
