In separate joint ventures, Harbor Associates, a Long Beach-based investment firm, paid a combined $56 million for two suburban office buildings in Valencia and Thousand Oaks. Both properties will be renovated.

In Valencia, Harbor teamed with Goldman Sachs Asset Management Private Real Estate. The pair paid Barings $33.1 million for a two-building, 156,630-square-foot office campus. Called Commons at Valencia Gateway, it is located at 25124 – 25125 Springfield Court. The complex is 81 percent leased to 15 tenants, including anchor tenant KB Studio.

Tom Bohlinger, Ryan Smith and Justin Hager of JLL represented Barings in the transaction.

In Thousand Oaks, Harbor teamed up with Blue Vista Capital Management to acquire the Conejo Corporate Campus at 2380 and 2400 Conejo Spectrum Street. The joint venture paid $22.9 million for the 198,500-square-foot campus.
