Northwestern Mutual Divests Los Alamitos Asset to Alere for $129M
Pension fund advisor Alere purchased Los Alamitos Corporate Center in Los Alamitos, CA from Northwestern Mutual for $128.5 million. Located at 4332-4478 Cerritos Ave., 10541-10681 Calle Lee and 4392-4465 Corporate Center Dr., the property is comprised of 17 buildings on a 36.9-acre lot in the Mid-Counties industrial submarket.
The 685,588-square-foot industrial complex is 98% leased, and currently home to 82 tenants with strong historical occupancy. The buildings range from 11,788 to 134,186 square-feet.
CBRE’s Darla Longo, Barbara Perrier, Brett Hartzell, Rebecca Perlmutter Finkel, Eric Cox and Laird Perkins represented the seller.
Perrier says, “This offering was a unique opportunity to acquire a high-performing asset in the tight Southern California industrial market. This rare asset in an infill market provides the buyer stable cash-flow, due to the strong historical tenancy that Los Alamitos Corporate Center has enjoyed.”
