“Wilbur Medical Plaza is the premier medical office building in Tarzana’s historically tight medical office submarket,” adds Ethan Christopher’s principal, Mark Hamermesh. “Marcus & Millichap handled this transaction with expertise and professionalism.”

“We are very pleased to have successfully executed an important transaction in the medical office marketplace,” notes Lyon. “It has been our pleasure to work with such a professional and reputable group as Atlantic Pearl Investments throughout this transaction and also with Ethan Christopher, who we believe will continue to operate Wilbur as the premier building in the marketplace.”
