Santa Monica Mixed Use NNN Triple Net Retail and Apartments Approved

Triple Net Retail Restaurant

Santa Monica California Planning Commission voted 6 – 1 to recommend that the full city council approve this seven story 249 market rate apartment with ground floor triple net retail restaurant complex at 5th and Broadway on the old Fred Segal property.

This is sure to upset the fierce Santa Monica commercial real estate NIMBYs who want anything over 32′ in height to go to a public vote so the 6 – 1 vote from the planning commission is quite a surprise. That being said, it hasn’t passed the full city council yet. However, a 6-1 vote from the planning commission is a real good indication that it will.

I think the two factors that helped with the Santa Monica commercial real estate vote was the proximity to the soon to open Santa Monica Expo Line station and the agreement to provide 64 offsite affordable housing units at 1626 Lincoln.

The new complex, 500 Broadway, will include 68,000 square feet of nnn triple net leased retail and restaurant space and the possibility of a grocery store, 249 market rate apartments and an underground parking garage with 524 spaces.

Architects are Koning Eizenberg.

The project is still a ways off, but if you want to get in line for some of the 68,000 square feet of net nnn leased retail space for lease in Santa Monica or restaurant space, I would be happy to help. Contact me, Scott Harris Realtor, at 310-473-4789.
