Aerospace Manufacturer Signs First New Lease in 55 Years

Aaron Weiner of Bailes & Associates, Inc. moved venerable aerospace manufacturer Photo-Sonics, Inc. from their ancestral home in Burbank where they were formed and had operated continuously since 1952.  During their years in Burbank,  the Rancho equestrian neighborhood grew up around them and they found themselves operating peacefully in the middle of a residential community.   But the metamorphosis of the neighborhood finally caught up to them and their landlord of more than 60 years (actually the children of the original landlord) sold the property to an owner-user interested in converting the buildings to a campus more in line with the current entertainment industry in Burbank.

“When I was engaged by Photo-Sonics to find them a new building to house their manufacturing, R&D and corporate offices, they made it clear that they needed a lot of hand holding because nobody at the company had ever dealt with this process” Aaron said.  “I provided it.”

With the Los Angeles industrial at historically tight levels, there was not much to choose from.  Add to that the specific building requirements of a manufacturer and geographical limitations of an R&D company with a team of highly specialized engineers, and we had a huge challenge finding a building that would work for them.

“We entered into negotiations on two occasions with willing landlords but the cost of modifying their buildings turned out to be much more than the either party was comfortable with” Weiner stated.  “It was while we were trying to figure out how to amortize extra landlord improvement allowances at the second location that I noticed a familiar 44,400 square foot building coming back on the market with a new owner ready to spend significant dollars to modernize the building.  The new landlord’s plans and my client’s needs aligned perfectly and we had a lease signed in 30 days.”

It was a happy ending to a 10 month search.  “I never stopped looking for the right building for Photo-Sonics”  Aaron said.  “And it paid off.”

Glendale Development Pushes Doctors Out, Tenant Representative Moves in to Save Their Practice

Glendale, CA (August 5, 2014) – As the real estate market recovers and development resumes, behind the set of the development stage unfold stories of individual businesses forced to evolve to remain on the scene. Many such businesses have been tenants of the medical buildings that stood strong for decades on North Central Avenue. With a hard deadline facing them, these tenants had to scurry to relocate before the North Central Avenue Apartment project got underway.

What do the offices of Dr. Mark M. De León, DDS, Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian, DDS, American Hearing and Balance and Drs. Karine Gaboian and Paul Duron, MD, have in common? All had been tenants at 633 N. Central Avenue for about two decades. Now, being thrust back into the leasing market, twenty years later, these doctors attempted to navigate shark infested leasing waters with minimal knowledge of what lay in the depths of a leasing transaction. After many challenging attempts to relocate and with only three months remaining, they finally were approached by someone who specializes in the Glendale leasing market and could alleviate the office leasing burden off their shoulders, enabling them to focus on their core mission of treating patients. This person was Narine Zardarian, a tenant representative with a 33-year old boutique Los Angeles based commercial real estate firm called Bailes & Associates, Inc.

Zardarian restored hope for these tenants as she met with and listened to the needs and wants of each. To Drs. Gaboian and Duron, a move-in ready office with ample parking and within close proximity to their current zip code was paramount, to Dr. Atakhanian’s dental office it was essential to acquire an existing dental suite that required limited tenant improvement work, to Dr. De León it was critical to find a space that felt welcoming and met their build out, rate and parking requirements, and to American Hearing and Balance it was essential to remain within close proximity to their elderly patients, be wheelchair accessible, stay within budget and have ample room to install their heavyweight sound booth. All of these tenants’ requirements were met and as of August 2014, all have moved into their freshly painted suites.

Dr. Mark De León, DDS, has moved to 1201 N. Pacific Ave., Suite 101;
Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian, DDS, has moved to 1201 N. Pacific Ave., Suite 104;
Dr. Karine Gaboian, MD, and Dr. Paul Duron, MD, have moved to 1141 N. Brand Blvd., Suite 400; and, American Hearing and Balance has moved to 230 N. Maryland Ave., Suite 200.

“It was amazing working with each of these tenants. I learned so much about their practices and I, especially, realized how much each cares about the people they treat; stopping at nothing to deliver treatment. For example, aside from running a full time dental practice, Dr. De León serves as a Board Member of Medical Mission Adventures, where he provides free dental services to underprivileged individuals through a mobile clinic. As the City becomes home to hundreds of additional residents who will need the services provided by these doctors once the new North Central Avenue apartment project rises in the very space where these doctors worked for two decades, my clients will continue to be an asset and play a critical role to the thriving City of Glendale,” said Narine Zardarian, MBA.

The North Central Apartment project will be comprised of a total of 507 multi-family residential rental units. These units will be housed in two five- story buildings with 315 units in one and 192 units in the other. The wrap style structures will enable tenants to park on the same level as their apartment.
