Continental Development dropped $48.8 million on a 211,400-square-foot commercial property in Torrance, the brokerage announced Wednesday.

The El Segundo-based development group bought Madrona Business Campus, a four-building Class A office and medical property at 20780-20810 Madrona Avenue, from privately-held Dominguez Investment Company.

Dominguez Investment previously purchased the 11.46-acre site for $51.2 million in 2007, property records show.
