Conor McGregor has added another Dublin pub to his property empire after buying the Waterside Bar in Howth.

he Dubliner, who was declared the highest paid sports star in the world in 2021 by Forbes, already owns the Black Forge Inn in Dublin 12 and the Marble Arch pub in Drimnagh.

According to The Currency, he “quietly” acquired the Waterside Bar from a group of local businessmen which is located almost directly opposite the Howth Yacht Club.

The fishing village, best known for its picturesque harbour, stunning cliff walks and views of Ireland’s Eye, will suit McGregor’s tastes as the harbor will be a natural berth for his new Lamborghini yacht.

His father, Tony, is also an avid sailor and regularly shares footage of his latest jaunt aboard his boat ‘The 188’, which is named after Conor’s former claim payment.

As well as shelling out around €2 million to buy The Black Forge in 2020, McGregor also pumped another €1 million into its renovation.

The two-weight world champion regularly frequents the venue where he has shared numerous snaps on social media showing him enjoying a meal or hosting parties for his family including one for his sister’s birthday there. a few days.

The MMA star traveled to Dublin last week to attend his sister Erin’s surprise birthday party.

He was vacationing in France before returning to his hometown of Crumlin for the celebrations at his boozer, the Black Forge Inn.

The McGregors threw an extravagant party at the Black Forge Inn for Erin’s 41st birthday on Monday night.

Aoife, their mother Margaret and Erin’s 21-year-old daughter Taylor were all in attendance while their aunts and great aunts also made their way to the Dublin 12 pub to celebrate.

In December, we revealed how McGregor was set to shell out around €100m to build 300 apartments, shops, cafes and a supermarket on three separate adjoining sites along the Grand Canal in Drimnagh.

Our architect’s exclusively obtained plans and photos show 188 apartments in a three to nine storey complex on the old Heidelberg/Miller old building and SCR garage site on Davitt Road, which was being assessed by An Bord Pleanála

We also commissioned aerial photos that showed not only the site of those flats to be built, for which he paid an initial sum of 15 million euros, but also a huge adjacent site that once housed a paint shop.

The UFC star bought the site for several million euros more and for which he plans to build more than 100 additional apartments.

He intends to turn some of these apartments in the second complex into social and affordable housing, which would give him additional leverage to obtain planning permission. It would also lead to a healthy profit if he sold them to the city council or a housing charity.

But that would still mean around 250 flats will be rented on the site alone which borders Dublin’s south city centre, which will result in McGregor skimming almost half a million in funds every month.

We can also reveal that McGregor did not complete the purchase of the nearby Marble Arch pub in a third adjacent site until November 15.

“I had a price in my head and I’m happy with the price,” publican Chris Kelly, who sold the Marble Arch to McGregor, told The Sunday World.

Chris hasn’t revealed how much the MMA sports star paid for the famous pub, but it’s believed Conor could have splashed close to £2million on the March arch.

It was at Marble Arch that McGregor infamously punched innocent Dubliner Desmond Keogh (50) in April 2019 when the customer refused to taste McGregor’s ‘Proper 12’ whiskey.

Keogh refused the blow and McGregor punched him in the head, to which he later pleaded guilty to assault and paid a €1,000 fine for the incident.

The Sunday World also revealed that McGregor could now demolish the Marble Arch.

“He has set his sights on building a big brand supermarket on the Marble Arch site, which is on a corner and would have ample space for parking,” our source reveals.

Conor McGregor’s real estate empire revealed by Sunday World in December

“He could use the Marble Arch license to get a seven-day liquor license for the new supermarket.”

Along with the supermarket and two complexes of nearly 300 apartments, McGregor also plans to build a gym and several retail units, which will house cafes, hairdressers and fashion stores.

Its intended enclave is on the Luas tram line, with stops 160 meters either side at Goldenbridge and Suir Road.

Plans seen by the Sunday World for its initial development of 188 apartments on Davitt Road show 20 of these will be studios, 79 one-bedroom and 89 two-bedroom.

Regarding the height of up to nine storeys, the plans state: “Given the width of the existing roadway, the Luas track and the Grand Canal, it is possible to absorb greater construction heights in this hallway.”

McGregor also hints at further developments along the canal bank in the area after completing the initial site, which would obviously include the paint shop site and the one where the March Arch is located.

Financing for boats, RVs and more https://yachtchartersflorida.net/financing-for-boats-rvs-and-more/ Wed, 08 Jun 2022 13:43:32 +0000 https://yachtchartersflorida.net/financing-for-boats-rvs-and-more/ June 08, 2022, 1:42 p.m.Updated 3 hours ago By: NerdWallet Summer is the season for the great outdoors, and getting a new toy, like a boat or an RV, is a dream come true for many people.

Summer is the season for the great outdoors, and getting a new toy, like a boat or an RV, is a dream come true for many people. But with rising interest rates, spikes in the cost of oil, and general economic uncertainty, you might be hesitant to make a big purchase right now.

Financing options, such as a secured loan, can make the purchase more manageable by spreading out the payments. But borrowing is not good for everyone. Look at your budget and factor in other expenses, like storage, maintenance, and gas.

SHOULD WE FINANCE A BIG SUMMER PURCHASE?

Before deciding if and how you should finance, check with yourself why you want to make the purchase, says Jarrod Sandra, a certified financial planner based in Crowley, Texas. According to Sandra, customers are sometimes driven by the idea of ​​a boat or RV, not the reality.

“I think mostly toys, you get that ‘American dream feeling’ of waterskiing behind the boat every Saturday or being out in the beautiful wilderness,” he says.

Sandra, who once owned a motorhome, says that dream doesn’t always come true. Maybe you rarely have time to get in the water on the weekends, or the remote campsite you’re considering is actually noisy and crowded.

For those who are sure they want to buy, whether to borrow money largely depends on your overall financial situation, says Marianne Nolte, a Fallbrook, Calif.-based certified financial planner and avid sailor.

“It all comes down to budgeting,” says Nolte. “It doesn’t matter if you’re 25 and saving for your first home or you’re a 50-year-old man who is well settled in his financial journey. You have to make sure, in terms of cash flow, that you are not going to hurt your monthly expenses.

Nolte adds that just because you can afford a loan doesn’t mean you should automatically get one. Also, make sure you’re not giving up on bigger goals, like saving for retirement, to cover payments.

Both Nolte and Sandra recommend a test drive, such as joining a yacht club or renting an RV for the weekend, to get your feet wet before committing to the purchase.

FINANCING FOR BOATS, RVS AND SMALL TOYS

If you’re going to finance a great summer toy, you’ll probably need a secured or unsecured loan.

Secured loans are usually the most affordable option and are available from banks, credit unions, and some dealerships. Since the purchase itself serves as collateral, interest rates tend to be lower and you can often benefit from a longer repayment term, sometimes up to 20 years.

One of the best ways to get approved for a secured loan is to provide a down payment of at least 10%, says Michael Lax, executive vice president and head of marine RV sales at Bank of the West.

Credit history is also important. If you’ve financed a similar purchase in the past, such as with a car loan, it can make the approval process much easier, Lax says.

Unsecured personal loans are another financing option and are offered by online lenders, banks, and credit unions. These loans don’t require collateral, so you don’t risk losing the item if you don’t repay. Lending decisions are based on creditworthiness, income, and existing debt, but annual percentage rates may be higher and repayment terms shorter, compared to a secured loan.

Some lenders let you prequalify for an unsecured loan, which is a smart way to check potential terms and compare different loans without affecting your credit score.

Borrowers looking for smaller toys — think a personal watercraft or all-terrain vehicle — might consider a credit card. But especially in an environment of rising credit card interest rates, you’ll want to pay off the balance as soon as possible. The cost of buying can also increase your credit utilization ratio, which could affect your credit score.

If you have good or excellent credit, a 0% APR card may be a good choice. You won’t pay any interest as long as you redeem the card before the promotional period expires and the regular APR sets in.

CONSIDER THE ASSOCIATED COSTS BEFORE MAKING A FINAL DECISION

The purchase price is not the only expense to keep in mind. Depending on the vehicle you purchase, there are an assortment of related costs that you will want to budget for.

Storage and transport are among the most important. While small items may live in your garage, larger items like boats may need to be stored offsite in a marina or parking lot. You will also need to transport the item, which may require a trailer and adding a hitch to your car or truck.

Maintenance is another concern. Like cars, toys require regular maintenance to stay in good condition, whether it’s changing a tire, checking the oil or preparing the vehicle for colder temperatures.

Gasoline, insurance and one-time costs, such as mooring or camping fees, must also be taken into account in the purchase budget.

Members of Congress, US Navy brass and submarine manufacturing workers celebrated the start of construction of the US Navy’s next-generation Columbia-class ballistic nuclear submarine on Saturday.

General Dynamics Electric Boat, the Connecticut and Rhode Island-based builder, held a symbolic keel-laying ceremony, reminiscent of the early days of shipbuilding when the center beam, the backbone of a ship, was put into place, marking the start of construction. The future USS District of Columbia was the focus of the meeting at Electric Boat’s Quonset Point, RI shipyard.

The Columbia is a top Navy priority and represents a “critical component of the United States’ nuclear deterrence and national security strategy,” said Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2, and chairman of a subcommittee House Armed Services. It will replace 14 Ohio-class submarines that are expected to begin retiring from service in 2027 after more than 40 years of operation.

The District of Columbia is the first ship in the new class of ballistic missile submarines built for the United States Navy by Electric Boat.

Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton, Representative for Washington, D.C. in the United States House of Representatives, reminded the public that Washington, D.C. has no electoral representation in the House and no senators represent the more than 700,000 residents of the district.

She said she was told by the Navy in 2016 that Columbia would recognize the residents of the District of Columbia “with this great honor and especially our service members and veterans who have fought in every American war since the founding of our nation, all without electoral representation in Congress.”

“He should recognize the jurisdiction that will become the 51st state of the United States of America,” Norton said to applause.

She then signed her initials which were soldered onto a ceremonial plaque.

U.S. Senator Jack Reed, DR.I., and chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the Quonset Point and Groton shipyards have evolved over the past 30 years into “massive complexes.” A 200,000 square foot assembly building is being built at the Groton Naval Shipyard as part of an $850 million expansion to accommodate a significant increase in construction related to the Columbia and Virginia class submarines .

The electric boat cannot rent fast enough. He said in January he plans to hire more than 3,000 workers this year, a 20% increase from 2021, as US military strategy faces growing North Atlantic threats from Russia. and in the South Pacific from China.

At 560 feet and displacing 20,810 tons, the District of Columbia will be the largest submarine ever built by the United States, Electric Boat said. Its reactor will not require refueling for its intended service life, maximizing its deployment time. In addition to the missiles the District of Columbia will carry, it will be armed with Mk 48 torpedoes and feature superior acoustic performance and state-of-the-art sensors to make it the most capable and quietest submarine ever built, according to Electric Boat.

The Navy’s fiscal year 2023 budget estimates the total cost of a class of 12 Columbia ships at $112.7 billion, according to a April report by the Congressional Research Service.

The research agency identified several risks, including a delay in the design and construction of the Columbia-class boat that could compromise the Navy’s ability to prepare it for its scheduled first patrol in 2031, cost increases that could impact funding for other Navy programs and potential vendor challenges associated with building Columbia-class and Virginia-class submarines concurrently.

Sanctioned Russian oligarch’s megayacht hides in a cove in the United Arab Emirates https://yachtchartersflorida.net/sanctioned-russian-oligarchs-megayacht-hides-in-a-cove-in-the-united-arab-emirates/ Wed, 01 Jun 2022 06:27:44 +0000 https://yachtchartersflorida.net/sanctioned-russian-oligarchs-megayacht-hides-in-a-cove-in-the-united-arab-emirates/ RAS AL-KHAIMAH, United Arab Emirates — In the dusty, northernmost Sheikhdom of the United Arab Emirates, where laborers pass rustic teahouses, one of the world’s largest yachts sits in a quiet harbour, so far avoiding the fate of other luxury ships linked to sanctioned Russian oligarchs.

RAS AL-KHAIMAH, United Arab Emirates — In the dusty, northernmost Sheikhdom of the United Arab Emirates, where laborers pass rustic teahouses, one of the world’s largest yachts sits in a quiet harbour, so far avoiding the fate of other luxury ships linked to sanctioned Russian oligarchs.

The display of lavish wealth is surprising in one of the poorest emirates in the United Arab Emirates, a 90-minute drive from the illuminated skyscrapers of Dubai. But the presence of the 118-metre (387ft) Motor Yacht A in a cove in Ras al-Khaimah also shows the neutrality of the United Arab Emirates during Russia’s war against Ukraine, as the Gulf country remains a pole attraction for Russian money and its oil-rich capital sees Moscow as a crucial OPEC partner.

Since Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine, the seven emirates of the Emirates have offered refuge to Russians, both those despairing of their country’s future and the mega-rich worried about Western sanctions.

While much of the world has imposed sanctions on Russian institutions and allies of President Vladimir Putin, the Emirates have not. It also avoids open criticism of the war, which government records still call the “Ukrainian crisis.”

Motor Yacht A is owned by Andrey Melnichenko, an oligarch worth around $23.5 billion, according to Forbes. He once ran fertilizer producer Eurochem and SUEK, one of the largest coal companies in the world.

In March, the European Union included Melnichenko in a massive sanctions list against business leaders and others described as close to Putin. EU sanctions noted that he attended a Feb. 24 meeting that Putin held on the day of the invasion.

“The fact that he was invited to this meeting shows that he is a member of Vladimir Putin’s closest circle and that he supports or implements actions or policies that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, as well as stability and security in Ukraine,” the EU said at the time.

Melnichenko resigned from the positions he held at the two major companies, according to the companies’ statements. However, he criticized Western sanctions and denied being close to Putin.

Melnichenko could not be reached for comment through his advisers.

Already, Italian authorities have seized one of his ships – the $600 million sailboat A. France, Spain and Britain have also sought to target superyachts linked to Russian oligarchs as part of a wider global effort to pressure Putin and those close to him. to him.

But the $300 million Motor Yacht A appears untouched so far. It was displaying an Emirati flag on Tuesday when Associated Press reporters observed the ship. Two crew members circled the deck.

The boat’s last recorded position on March 10 put it away from the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, just over 3,000 kilometers (1,860 miles) from Ras al-Khaimah. Planet Labs PBC satellite images analyzed by the AP show the ship in the Ras al-Khaimah stream from March 17, a week later.

The Financial Times first reported on the ship’s presence in the United Arab Emirates.

Ras al-Khaimah authorities did not respond to a request for comment on the yacht’s presence. The UAE Foreign Ministry did not respond to questions about the ship, but said in a statement to the AP that it takes “its role in protecting the integrity of the global financial system extremely seriously.” serious”.

But so far, the UAE has taken no such public action aimed at Russia. The country abstained in a UN Security Council vote in February condemning the Russian invasion, angering Washington.

The neutral response may come “from the financial gain we’re seeing in Dubai in terms of new tourist arrivals and Russian efforts to move assets and buy property,” said Karen Young, senior fellow at the Washington-based Middle East Institute.

The flow of Russian money – both legitimate and shady – is now an open secret in Dubai, where lavish hotels and beaches are increasingly teeming with Russian speakers. State radio hosts happily describe a massive influx.

The United Arab Emirates has become one of the few remaining flight corridors from Moscow. The Emirati government has offered three-month multiple-entry visas on arrival to all Russians, allowing large companies to easily transfer their employees from Moscow to Dubai. Al Maktoum International’s private jet terminal at Dubai World Central has seen a 400% increase in traffic, the airport’s CEO recently told the AP.

Estate agents have reported renewed interest from Russians looking to buy property in Dubai, particularly in the Dubai Marina high-rises and Palm Jumeirah villas.

For those wishing to settle in the UAE, purchasing a high-end property also qualifies for a visa.

“Business is booming right now,” said Thiago Caldas, CEO of Dubai-based real estate company Modern Living, which now accepts cryptocurrency to facilitate sales with new Russian customers. “They have a normal life and are not subject to restrictions.”

Caldas said requests from Russian customers in Dubai have increased more than 10-fold since the war, forcing his company to hire three Russian-speaking agents to deal with the deluge.

With sanctions on Russian banks and companies preventing many citizens from accessing foreign capital, Russians are increasingly trying to circumvent bank transfers through digital currencies in Dubai, two cryptocurrency traders in the city have said , where they are able to liquidate large sums of money.

“It is a haven of peace. … The influx of Russian accounts skyrocketed 300% days after the start of the war in Ukraine,” said a Russian crypto trader in Dubai, who spoke like the other on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.

Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi’s state-owned investment firm Mubadala remains among Russia’s most active sovereign wealth funds, along with those of China and Qatar, according to calculations by Javier Capapé of IE University in Spain for l ‘AP.

But the pressure is mounting. Late Tuesday, the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi released a strongly worded video message in solidarity with Ukraine featuring local ambassadors from the world’s major democracies as the Russian Foreign Minister visits the region .

“We are united against Russia’s unjustifiable, unprovoked and unlawful aggression,” said Ernst Peter Fischer, German Ambassador to the UAE.

  • Cruise lines are struggling to hire crew members.
  • Carnival has temporarily closed two restaurants on all of its ships.
  • Norwegian and Cunard have capped cruise ship capacities and canceled departures.

The cruise industry could be in choppy waters again: Difficulties hiring crew members have hampered the operations of several cruise lines, leaving some would-be cruise passengers with fewer onboard dining options or canceled trips .

Like hospitality businesses ashore, cruise lines were not immune to labor shortages “in the midst of the Great Resignation. And now a shortage of available cruise workers has begun. affect itineraries and on-board amenities.

This staffing issue is one of the reasons Holland America decided to “pace its restart over the course of the year,” a spokesperson told Insider in a statement. While Royal Caribbean’s spokesperson acknowledged similar difficulties in hiring, the cruise line does not expect to cancel future itineraries.

Not all cruise lines have been as lucky as Holland America or Royal Caribbean.

Passengers sailing with Carnival will also be spared itinerary changes. But that doesn’t mean it will be smooth sailing for the cruise line. Carnival will temporarily close two restaurants on all of its ships, Fran Golden reported for Bloomberg.

“Our rapid restart required us to bring back thousands of crew members in a very short time, which increased the number of resources needed by government officials to process the large number of visa applications and slowed our ability to staff fully staff some of our functions, including our culinary team,” a Carnival spokesperson told Insider in a statement.

Similarly, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America, which typically operates with more than 900 crew members, now accommodates fewer than 550 workers, Claudette Covey reported for Travel pulse. As a result, the cruise line has reduced the ship’s seating capacity as it sails to Hawaii. And some unlucky guests traveling on overbooked ships will need to be rebooked on different itineraries, a Norwegian Cruise Line spokesperson told Insider.

Like Norwegian, Cunard has limited guest numbers and canceled sailings aboard its ships Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria, blaming the “wider impact of COVID-19” on its hiring difficulties. There may not be immediate relief in sight, but a Cunard spokesperson told Insider that these “necessary” cancellations and capacity issues will be “short-term.”

Is the boat party over at Lake Butler Bird Island? – Orlando Sentinel https://yachtchartersflorida.net/is-the-boat-party-over-at-lake-butler-bird-island-orlando-sentinel/ Tue, 24 May 2022 23:47:33 +0000 https://yachtchartersflorida.net/is-the-boat-party-over-at-lake-butler-bird-island-orlando-sentinel/ Orange County commissioners voted unanimously on Tuesday to create a ‘vessel exclusion zone’ in Lake Butler, prohibiting boats from approaching within 80 feet of the shoreline of a managed bird sanctuary by Audubon which has become a popular weekend party spot.

Orange County commissioners voted unanimously on Tuesday to create a ‘vessel exclusion zone’ in Lake Butler, prohibiting boats from approaching within 80 feet of the shoreline of a managed bird sanctuary by Audubon which has become a popular weekend party spot.

Despite the vote, it’s unclear how long – if ever – the weekend and holiday hype will end in the island’s sandy shallows.

“It’s not a solution to everything,” said Gary Bruhn, who spent 15 years as mayor of Windermere seeking a solution to the rowdy, booze-fueled festivities that have become so rowdy. that some real estate agents won’t show millions of dollars. weekend lakeside properties. “But it’s a foot in the door. When you talk about enforcement, if you don’t have a law, how are you going to enforce it? »

Although “no trespassing” signs are posted on the 10-acre island, anyone who can access the shallows has a right to be there.

The new rule cannot prevent boaters from anchoring outside the area and swimming to the area where vessels were bringing them.

But many avid boaters said they disagreed with the rule, saying it favored good swimmers and able-bodied people and especially prevented those with young children, disabled family members or elderly people aboard their ships to take advantage of the shallow waters.

Others urged commissioners to reject the rule, arguing it failed to address contributing factors, including the prevalence of alcohol and the crowds of fast, loud, rented watercraft that enter the chain of lakes via ramps. boat launch owned by the county.

Audubon, Windermere officials and lakeside residents applauded the decision.

“I’ve had a front-row view of the island for almost 60 years,” said Thellie Roper, whose house on Second Avenue in Windermere faces an uninhabited wildlife sanctuary, also known as Egret Island. “I can’t even sit on my porch, the noise is so loud… It’s a bird sanctuary, by the way, not a disco.”

Before Orange County built public boat ramps on the Butler Chain of Lakes, flocks of egrets, great blue herons, osprey and other wading birds, numbering in the thousands, nests in the cypress trees on the island and fed their young with fish they caught in the lakes.

Audubon officials claimed boaters used the island as a restroom, and loud music thinned flocks of nesting birds.

While it’s unclear whether the county could install buoys marking the area in time for Memorial Day, Orange County Sheriff’s Maj. Stephen Garrison promised “a significant presence” of law enforcement during holidays, considered the start of the summer boating season.

Apartments in Santa Monica sold for a record price https://yachtchartersflorida.net/apartments-in-santa-monica-sold-for-a-record-price/ Mon, 23 May 2022 07:05:50 +0000 https://yachtchartersflorida.net/apartments-in-santa-monica-sold-for-a-record-price/ A luxury apartment complex in Santa Monica that attracts celebrity tenants has sold for $330 million or $2.75 million per unit – a record amount per unit for a larger rental building in the city.Santa Monica-based Douglas Emmett Inc. purchased the 120-unit property at 1221 Ocean Ave. at Irvine Co, based in Newport Beach.

A luxury apartment complex in Santa Monica that attracts celebrity tenants has sold for $330 million or $2.75 million per unit – a record amount per unit for a larger rental building in the city.
Santa Monica-based Douglas Emmett Inc. purchased the 120-unit property at 1221 Ocean Ave. at Irvine Co, based in Newport Beach.

Douglass Emmett did not immediately respond to requests for comment but discussed the sale during an earnings call. Jordan Kaplan, President and CEO of Douglas Emmett, called the property “one of the most prestigious and well-located multi-family assets on the West Coast with panoramic ocean views from every unit.”

“It suited us perfectly and we were able to broker a deal that made everyone happy,” he said on the call.
The property is 98% leased. Its units average 1,500 square feet.
Kevin Crummy, the company’s chief investment officer, said on the earnings call that the company would pursue a major renovation of the project. Renovations include upgrading units and common areas.

prime location

The complex has been known to Hollywood elites over the years, with rents estimated at $15,000 per month on average.
The property, which boasts its ocean views, consists of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with high-end finishes. The property features a rooftop pool with ocean views, a club, business lounge, restaurant, and fitness center. The Santa Monica Pier is three blocks south.

This led Irvine Co. to pay $44.1 million for the property in 1998. Celebrities such as Britney Spears, Larry David and Michelle Pfeiffer have taken up residence at one point or another, according to a New York Post article. .
Dean Zander, executive vice president of CBRE Group Inc., said properties in sought-after areas that are hard to replicate and have many amenities are currently in high demand.

“It’s very difficult to build this type of product and you can set your own rents when you have this type of fully serviced housing that rivals single family and even surpasses single family,” he said.
Santa Monica as a whole has seen strong rent numbers.
In the Santa Monica/Marina del Rey submarket, the average rent in the first quarter was nearly $3,686, according to CBRE data. That’s the highest average rent of any submarket, the brokerage found. It also represents an increase of more than 13% over the previous year and 3.8% over the previous quarter.

The appeal of the Santa Monica market and the ultra-luxury factor of the Ocean Avenue property likely led to its record unit price.
The previous record, according to data from CoStar Group Inc., was held by 302-312 San Vicente Blvd., sold as part of a portfolio. In 2015, United El Segundo Inc. purchased the 10-unit property for $1.9 million per unit. Other high-priced unit sales in the Santa Monica area include 301 Ocean Ave., which sold for $1.8 million per unit in 2021; 1025 Ocean Ave., which sold for $1.3 million a unit in 2019; and 901 Ocean Ave., which sold for $1.2 million a unit in 2021.

The property 1221 Ocean Ave. is also the most expensive multi-family transaction in Santa Monica and the second most expensive commercial real estate sale in Santa Monica of all time, according to data from Commercial Real Estate Exchange Inc., or Crexi.
“Your core markets like Santa Monica are still active, still healthy,” said Eli Randel, chief strategy officer at Crexi.

Douglas Emmett’s purchase of the multi-family property at 1221 Ocean Ave., which is the middle building shown here, was the most expensive apartment sale ever in Santa Monica at $330 million.

New owner

Douglas Emmett, whose head office is a short walk from the acquisition of the apartment, recently announced its first quarter results.
The company owns and operates 18.2 million square feet of Class A office properties and 4,415 apartments in Los Angeles and Honolulu.

The Santa Monica acquisition, along with projects the company is developing and leasing in downtown Honolulu and Brentwood, will add approximately 1,000 units to Douglas Emmett’s portfolio.
The Brentwood project, dubbed the Landmark Los Angeles, is currently leased. It is the first new high-rise residential development west of the 405 freeway in more than 40 years, according to Douglas Emmett, and has 376 units stacked in a 34-story tower.

Your main markets like Santa Monica
are still active.
Eli Randel
Commercial real estate exchange

Kaplan said the company will continue to pursue high-end assets like the Santa Monica acquisition in the future.
“Throughout our portfolio, both in office and residential, we’re trying – we’re targeting high-end, and that suited us perfectly. We just built something at the top; we have other things here along the coast that we’re working on, which is the upper end. All the steps we’ve taken have been to have the highest, most upscale residential and office portfolio,” Kaplan said on the earnings call.

During the first quarter, the company recorded an increase in revenue of more than 10%.
But all may not go smoothly in the future.
“Looking forward, rising interest rates and inflation will present us with both challenges and opportunities,” Kaplan said on the call. “We are ready to meet the challenges and remain ready to seize the opportunities.”

Douglas Emmett purchased the Ocean Avenue complex through a company-managed joint venture in which it holds a 55% stake.
For the acquisition, the joint venture received a $175 million interest-only term loan that matures in 2029.

The pool and gathering area at the top of 1221 Ocean Ave. offer spectacular views.
