Mike Slattery, Jason Kimmel, Tim Winslow, and Kevin Nolen with Cushman & Wakefield in San Diego represented the seller in the transaction.

“1133-1147 Prospect St. is a true crown jewel asset with an irreplaceable location also considered to be the very best location in the most sought-after retail block in La Jolla,” said Mike Slattery, Director. “Further enhancing the uniqueness and desirability of this asset, the property also includes 29 on-site surface parking spaces immediately adjacent to the building.”

Slattery added, “This was a tremendous opportunity, as generation properties such as these rarely come to the market. Strong demand for the distinct real estate offered in La Jolla Village attracts specialty and upscale tenants and subsequently commands some of the highest rent in San Diego. It is believed to be one of the highest price per square foot ever paid for a retail property in San Diego County.”

Located at the corner of Prospect St. and Ivanhoe Ave., the property provides sweeping ocean views and is just steps from the La Valencia Hotel, Georges at the Cove, The Colonial Hotel, La Jolla Cove and many other world-class shopping and dining destinations.

Jason Kimmel, Senior Director, said, “La Jolla Village is a premier location that continually attracts a broad array of tenants including restaurants and outdoor cafes, upscale boutiques, jewelers, art galleries, fitness studios, financial services, brokerage houses, day spas and salons, and a wide variety of upscale specialty retailers and services. Demand for core high street retail space in the Village has remained strong.”
