Ryan McKenzie and Chris McKenzie were able to secure a lease with the prominent lighting entertainment firm Volt Lites for this 15,000 square foot facility in Burbank. Many of Burbank’s creative industrial companies have decided to relocate into this “Creative Flex” type of building. Utilizing new offices, new lighting, fresh exterior upgrades, polished concrete interiors and more – our tenant was able to secure a long term lease in the premier Backlot Burbank Business Park.

With a slight uptick in vacancy totaling 1.5% for warehouse distribution, landlords continue to reap the benefit. However, while sale prices are still high, Sales Volume has had a significant decrease over last year’s 3Q. Are prices going to drop? Demand continues to remain high, however pricing may have outpaced consumers.

The new development on the old airport land…
From Burbankca.gov – See Below
The proposed “Avion” project would construct a business park on approximately 60 acres of vacant land adjacent to the Burbank Bob Hope Airport consisting of the following components:
- Six buildings two stories high for industrial/warehouse uses totaling 1,014,887square feet;
- Nine buildings two stories high for creative office uses totaling 142,250 square feet;
- Two buildings one story high for retail/restaurant uses totaling approximately 15,154 square feet;
- One hotel with 166 rooms;
- Complete site improvements related to the project including utilities, drainage, paving, landscape, lighting, etc.
- Extend, improve, and dedicate Tulare Avenue west of Hollywood Way;
- Extend, improve, and dedicate Kenwood Street south to the future Tulare Avenue.
The project site is located at 3001 N. Hollywood Way, and is surrounded by industrial/storage uses (to the north and east), the Burbank Bob Hope Airport (to the west and south), and vacant parcels. North Hollywood Way abuts the easterly boundary of the project site, and North San Fernando Road is to the north, and Winona Avenue is to the south. The current zoning designations are “General Industrial (M-2)” and “Airport (AP)” and are proposed to change to “Planned Development (PD)” zoning. The project site has two General Plan land use designations, “Golden State Commercial/Industrial” and “Airport” and the entire project site is proposed to be Golden State Commercial/Industrial.

LA Northwest Market Update.
The Los Angeles county industrial market remains the tightest in the country – Xceligent Research. Despite seeing a continual feeding frenzy for industrial property, the market inventory has increased — by 0.1%. With the only new product coming online in Valencia and Simi Valley, San Fernando Valley industrial property values continues to grow by leaps and bounds.
The newest trend in the warehouse world is “Creative Rehab” which turns the dated heavy industrial brick construction into warehouse/office conversions. These properties are complete with polished concrete floors, modern lighting, full A/C, and a kitchen that would make your home jealous. It also comes with a hefty price tag of nearly $1.40 NNN per square foot for over 10,000 sq.ft. of space. In comparison the competitive market rate is between $1.15-$1.20 NNN per square foot.
Land within the Valley will continue to disappear as Overton Moore Properties’ newest project will remove land from Burbank Airport adjacent parking lots. Effectively displacing many entertainment studio vehicles and other related companies. Sending land hungry companies into Sun Valley, Sylmar, and San Fernando.
Bottom line – my opinion is lease rates will increase and sale price to follow suit.

LA Northwest Market Update
Los Angeles Northwest region maintains continued low vacancy rates with only .1% increase in available space for warehouse and distribution totaling 1.1%. Direct Weighted Average Asking Rates (NNN) increased by $.01 to $.75 for warehouse and distribution but remained the same for flex property at $1.09. Unemployment also dropped for California.
In my opinion lease prices will continue at current market however sales prices will increase as users contemplate equity involvement in properties.
