SHERMAN OAKS, CA—Charles Dunn Company, one of the largest full-service regional real estate firms in the western United States, has completed an office lease in the San Fernando Valley.

Stacy Vierheilig-Fraser, senior managing director with Charles Dunn Company out of the firm’s Sherman Oaks office, completed a 19,200 square foot lease with The Refinery, an award-winning advertising agency specializing in print, audio visual, motion, and interactive campaigns for the entertainment industry.

Vierheilig-Fraser represented The Refinery in the transaction. The landlord, a private family trust was represented by Scott Silverstein and Tom Specker of Lee & Associates. The property is located at 14455 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks.  The Refinery will occupy two full floors of the three-story, 30,662 square foot office building and will locate into its new space in April 2013.

According to Vierheilig-Fraser, The Refinery has two locations in Burbank and one in North Hollywood and will be combining those offices within the Sherman Oaks space. The new office was chosen based on its central location near the Ventura Freeway and favorable rental rate.

“Finding mid-rise spaces of this size at reasonable rents is difficult,” said Vierheilig-Fraser. “This office provided all of The Refinery’s space requirements and will meet all of their consolidation and expansion needs.”
