Your price will depend on many factors. I am the Broker at Cox Commercial, Inc. and we have leased several buildings in the city, most recently 2 on Marketplace. How many square feet is the building and what is the zoning? Do the bays have in-ground lifts? What kind of visibility does it have. We recently leased out approximately 9,000 square feet of automotive space in Hawaiian Gardens off of Carson for .95/sq. ft industrial gross. We have also recently leased smaller automotive space in Huntington Beach at $1.25/sq. ft. industrial gross (1960 sq ft and 1760 sq. ft). The other agent who quoted you below was basing the pricing off of office space, not industrial, warehouse or automotive space. If you want to give me more specific info on the property, I can narrow down the price for you, even if you want to market it on your own.
