Starpoint, a Beverly Hills-based firm led by Paul Daneshrad, owns multifamily, retail and office properties across the West Coast. Locally, it owns the 101,600-square-foot Roxbury office complex on Roxbury Drive, which it bought for $43 million. In a joint venture with Golden West Properties, Starpoint also recently acquired the Adidas and Burn Fitness building at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica for $30 million.

The deal is one among many big-ticket items trading in Beverly Hills. DivcoWest Real Estate Investments is reportedly paying $83 million for an office building built by music icon David Geffen, while private equity firm Cruzan spent $69 million to acquire Rodeo Realty’s base at 9171 Wilshire Boulevard. Cruzan’s purchase was the second-highest office sale in Beverly Hills at the time, following CIM Group’s January purchase of the Union Bank of California Building for $132 million.
