UPDATED on Feb. 19, at 12:28 p.m.:  Two properties and surrounding surface lots along the Wilshire Boulevard corridor with development possibilities have hit the market.

The buildings at 5070 and 5151 Wilshire Boulevard span 339,000 square feet and are fully leased by Sonic Automotive for a BMW car dealership and a service center. The owner is Ehlers Investment Company, according to property records.

A commercial broker familiar with the listing said the sellers are seeking $60 million for the properties.

The dealership includes 93,000 square feet, and the used auto and repair facility includes 246,000 square feet.

Kyle Matthews, the CEO of Matthews Real Estate Investment Services, which has the listing, declined to give a listing price. In 2010, the tenant paid $35.5 million on construction and redevelopment of the two properties.

The current rent across the two buildings is $3.53 per square foot per year. The listing includes additional surface lots surrounding the buildings along Sycamore Avenue, Orange Drive and Mansfield Avenue.

The buildings are a few blocks east of La Brea Avenue, where construction crews are building Metro’s Purple Line Extension subway stop, making the location in a level-3 Transit-Oriented Community. The city of Los Angeles launched the TOC program to provide density bonuses and other incentives for developments with affordable housing near transit stops.

CIM Group is currently redeveloping the former Farmers Insurance headquarters nearby at 4750 Wilshire Boulevard. That property includes 144,300 square feet of rentable space.
