Case Study – Property Management
KB Westchester


KB Westchester is an approximately 800,000 square foot multi-tenant warehouse located in the City of Vernon. When Charles Dunn assumed management of this project in 2013, there were major accounting problems, significant deferred maintenance, and numerous non-compliance issues with tenants disregarding the terms of their lease.


During the transition of the property the Charles Dunn team met with each tenant; explained any questions related to the terms of the leases; commenced a tenant retention program; completed major parking lot repairs, complete paint and update of the buildings and site; lighting retrofits to improve safety and lower energy and overall operating costs.


Working closely with the leasing team, Charles Dunn helped finalize tenant improvements to attract and retain tenants at longer terms and higher rates. The buildings are now 95% leased and past lease issues resolved. Upcoming improvements include more operational and economic efficiency projects such as elevator retrofitting; Title 24 roof coatings systems and energy efficient coolers and freezers for specific tenant uses at the project.

Case Study – Property and Construction Management
Compton Retail Center


A private partnership selected Charles Dunn Company to improve management and leasing operations for an underperforming retail center in Compton, California, which suffered from low, 76% occupancy and rents below market rates. The 196,442 SF property was in disrepair, with potential liabilities such as transformers catching fire. Electricity was unreliable, often forcing the owners to rent generators.


Charles Dunn’s management and construction teams worked with the ownership on a complete property renovation and upgrade. Actions included replacing the dilapidated metal building façade with a new, colorful façade, adding ADA ramps and new, LED light fixtures in common areas, and installing new, drought-tolerant landscaping. Newly commissioned monument signage now enhances the visibility of the shopping center.


Today, the retail center is a cost-efficient, safe, and hazard-free building with increased value and occupancy. The upgrades saved on operating expenses across the board, and reduced power costs by up to 40 percent. Occupancy has risen to 83 percent, and existing and new tenants pay market rate rents. As many as eight new restaurant and retail tenants are expected to sign leases in the coming year.
