VAN NUYS, Calif., July 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Storm Properties, Inc. is pleased to announce the sale of its 3.4 acre Sherman Way project, a 58 single-family home subdivision located in supply-constrained market of Van Nuys, to KB Homes. This sale follows the acquisition of the prized, unentitled parcel in November 2015 in a quick, all cash purchase of excess land from the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. Storm Properties handled the entitlement work. Terms were not disclosed.

Located at 14700 Sherman Way, the community will be gated and feature a private park. Spanish-themed architecture will showcase two- and three-story floor plans with three or four bedrooms, 2½ -3½ baths, and a backyard. The residences will range in size from 1,662 square feet to 1,822 square feet, and are expected to be delivered in mid-2018.

“We received tremendous homebuilder interest for Sherman Way, a result of the surging homebuyer demand for new, single-family housing that is centrally located in the San Fernando Valley and the scarcity of new infill development sites,” said Alan Kwan, director of acquisitions of the Torrance-based company. “We want to thank Chris Gomez-Ortigoza of Land Advisors Organization for representing both buyer and seller in this transaction.”

Storm Properties has extensive experience in developing single-family and multi-family communities in infill neighborhoods throughout Southern California. Additionally, Storm currently operates a diverse portfolio of industrial and retail properties, and is targeting significant growth through further acquisitions. Its efforts are focused on residential land in in-fill locations for entitlement, and core-plus to value-add retail and industrial properties in the $5-million to $30-million range in major Western metro markets. Additionally, Storm is seeking additional land opportunities for residential entitlement and commercial/industrial development.

Storm Properties is a subsidiary of Torrance-based Storm Industries, Inc., an innovative and entrepreneurial organization with a growing family of companies. Over its 83-year history, Storm has evolved from a single brass foundry in Los Angeles to a highly diversified group of businesses operating across the globe.
