THE CLD TEAM
California Landmark, a development and investment company formed in 1988, acquires, rehabilitates and develops real estate, primarily in Southern California.
California Landmark orchestrates all aspects of the development cycle. We evaluate opportunities presented by private owners and brokers, and have forged strong relationships with local and national lenders. We simultaneously interact with all consultants, including, lawyers, land–use planners, architects, civil engineers, geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, and mechanical engineers. We have extensive experience preparing specifications and cost estimating in order to ensure successful, profitable projects. We maintain excellent working relationships with city planning, housing, and building departments, design review boards, OSHPD, FEMA, and various homeowner associations.
California Landmark has been successful at developing complex multi–family projects in the most difficult areas of Los Angeles County by working with politicians, planning and housing departments, neighborhood associations and consultants to meet the projects’ and communities’ needs. Each of our projects has a unique set of entitlement challenges, yet by proposing creative solutions to these challenges, we are able to attain an even greater economic return than what was originally entitled on the site.
California Landmark’s residential projects are known for their quality and character. Noteworthy past projects include a 300,000–square–foot luxury residential high–rise tower on the Wilshire Corridor; four industrial style residential loft projects totaling over 500,000 square feet in the Marina Arts district and the rehabilitation of several pre World War II California courtyard apartment buildings and Mediterranean style villas in Century City. Current Projects include three premium apartment communities including the contemporary "bw" (Wilshire at Barrington), the California courtyard style “hw” (Hollywood Blvd at Crescent Heights) and the mid–century modern “LC” (Larchmont at Melrose).
Our commercial projects have award–winning exteriors, even as they maintain interior designs that allow maximum function. These buildings attract quality tenants, as well as minimize user turnover. The firm has also been creative and resourceful in solving problems on difficult commercial and industrial sites, with projects as varied as the acquisition and disposition of a multi–parcel 75 acre industrial park, the development of a premier150–bed skilled rehabilitation hospital, and the construction and sale of dozens of small owner user buildings in industrial parks.
