Brandon Gill, Brandon Burns, and Jae Yoo — who have brokered major Arts District development site sales — have jumped from their senior vice president posts at CBRE to Cushman & Wakefield, the brokerage told The Real Deal.

All three have been named as executive directors at Cushman and will continue to focus on development, industrial and adaptive reuse deals in the Arts District and the surrounding industrial neighborhoods.

The team has been involved in many of the deals that are shaping the Arts District, as well as development and industrial projects in Vernon. Gill was the lead broker representing the seller in the sale of the Ford Factory building to Shorenstein. The team also represented Core Development in both its 2014 acquisition of the development lot at 2143 Violet Street, and its sale of the site to Onni Group in 2016.

In Vernon, the team brokered the $22 million sale of the roughly 10-acre AkzoNobel development site in 2015.

Ally Hayashi, a brokerage coordinator, and Sarah Nock, a graphic designer, both formerly of CBRE, have also joined the brokers in their move.
