December 6, 2017 CGS3 News Release

SAN DIEGO (December 6, 2017) – Crosbie Gliner Schiffman Southard & Swanson LLP (CGS3), partner David Swartz recently represented Doheny Eye Institute – a top-ranked nonprofit organization affiliated with UCLA Stein Eye Institute – in the $50 million acquisition of its new headquarters, a four-story Pasadena office complex.

The 123,204-square-foot complex is situated on seven acres at 150 N. Orange Grove Blvd. Following the completion of interior renovations, Doheny Eye Institute plans to relocate there from its current Boyle Heights offices in late 2018.

Designed by architects William L. Pereira & Associates, creators of the original Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) campus and the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, this LEED Silver-contemporary property was built in 1981 and originally housed the Avery Dennison Corporation. The building, adjacent to Old Pasadena, award-winning restaurants, the Norton Simon Museum, the Pasadena Museum of History and the Tournament of Roses, will serve as the new home to Doheny’s vision research center, operating suites and clinical space.

Doheny was also represented by broker Charles Dunn Company in the transaction.
