The Wilshire Royale, a 193-unit multifamily property with retail in Westlake, has sold for $45.5 million.
Mosser Capital purchased the property, with 8,933 square feet of ground-floor retail, from MWest Holdings.
Joseph Grabiec, Kevin Green and Greg Harris of Marcus & Millichap’s Institutional Property Advisors division represented the seller and found the buyer.
“Originally constructed as the upscale Arcady apartment-hotel, Wilshire Royale exemplifies the opulence of Neoclassical, Beaux Arts architecture and has been extensively renovated to provide the ultimate living experience in a submarket with compelling demand drivers,” Grabiec said in a statement. “The property gives the buyer an opportunity to generate additional revenue by continuing the high-end unit interior renovation program and further enhancing the income stream through the redevelopment of the ground floor retail space and 4,500-square-foot basement.”
The property was built in 1927 and consists of efficiencies, studios, and one-, two- and three-bedroom units. It also has a fitness center, conference room, business center, swimming pool and spa and valet parking.
The Wilshire Royale qualifies for a Transit Oriented Communities Tier 3 density bonus, according to Green, which means the buyer could add up to 63 additional units.
