Growth Investment Group is proud to offer The MARQ, a prominent 24-unit apartment community located in the gentrified neighborhood of Highland Park, CA. A turnkey, newer constructed apartment community (built in 1989) and located in what can be considered as one of the best locations in Highland Park. The property offers an investor the rare opportunity to own an excellent piece of real estate in a strong and gentrifying submarket nearby downtown Los Angeles, plus a safe way to fight the raging inflation. Due to its year built, the property is NOT under City of Los Angeles rent control ordinance; it is under Statewide ordinance AB1482 which allows maximum annual rent increase of 5%+CPI. This provides future upside potential for upgraded units and non-upgraded units (2).
The Marq is strategically located right off York Blvd, providing easy access to dining, retail stores, and shopping along the street. It is within walking distance to Highland Park Metro Station, and Figueroa St retail corridors. It is at the border of Highland Park and South Pasadena and within walking distance to South Pasadena Arroyo Seco Golf Course and South Pasadena Arroyo Seco Park. The property has a high Walk Score of 88 (“Very Walkable”). It has superb access to Downtown Los Angeles via FWY 110, and minutes to FWY 2, FWY 134 and FWY 210.
