TORRANCE, CA-An old Vagabond Hotel on Torrance’s Pacific Coast Highway will be demolished and replaced by condominiums as part of a plan by the property’s new owner. Riviera Colony LLC, a private investment group, picked up the hotel and its 33,000 sf of land for $3.25 million, beating out six other bidders and overbidding the original $3.23 million asking price by $22,000 to take possession of the 6226 S. Pacific Coast Highway property from seller RPD Vagabond Associates of Los Angeles.

“There were a lot of people writing offers so we went under contract really quickly,” Adrienne Herman, with CB Richard Ellis’ Team Lustig-Bower tells Herman said the competition for the property was particularly intense because the asking price was based only on the land value and not the added cost of the hotel.

The new owner, an entity of Doug Maupin Development, a local condo developer, plans to demolish the structure and replace it with a condominium complex. Plans for the complex are still on the drawing board, Herman said, noting that it will take at least a year for the developer to get all the approvals needed to begin construction. Herman and Mike McKinney, also with CB Richard Ellis, Inc., represented both parties in the sales transaction.
