The property sold for $24.5 million.
“The building is located on the most desirable block of the world-famous Third Street Promenade, a pedestrian-only outdoor shopping district that has become one of the major tourist attractions in Southern California,” said Richard Ringer, senior managing director investments in Marcus & Millichap’s West Los Angeles office.
