SR Commercial Purchases Carlsbad Office Building on Lionshead for $8.75 million


Vinturi seller; Deal facilitated by DTZ San Diego’s Aric Starck

SAN DIEGO – July 8, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — DTZ, a global leader in commercial real estate services, announced today the sale of a 65,000 square foot flex/R&D building located at 3193 Lionshead Avenue in Carlsbad for $8.75 million.

DTZ San Diego’s Senior Managing Director, Aric Starck, facilitated the purchase of the property between the buyer, Solana Beach-based SR Commercial, and the seller, Illinois-based Vinturi.

“Carlsbad continues to be one of the most active investment markets in San Diego. Investors are still able to purchase buildings below replacement cost in a market with excellent market fundamentals,” said Mr. Starck “At the end of the second quarter, the Carlsbad industrial vacancy dropped to 9% while continuing to see significant net absorption.”

The Class-A building is located in the master planned Carlsbad Raceway Business Park. The property is divisible for two tenant occupancy and convenient proximity to retail amenities, food court and a public park. Along with a generous parking ratio, the property offers easy access from Melrose Drive, Palomar Airport Road and Business Park Drive. The building features expansive glass and skylights to allow for an open and creative work environment.

SR Commercial purchased the vacant building and will leverage DTZ San Diego to lease the building moving forward.
