Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann spotted the perfect location for their next… office.

The Hollywood couple’s $12.4 million purchase of a Sawtelle office for Apatow Productions led the April list of priciest retail and office investment sales in Los Angeles County.

In all, three retail properties and two office properties sold last month, for a combined $45.8 million.

With big box stores closing around L.A., the region has an increasing amount of vacant retail space. The top office sales in the most recent months were also far greater, thanks in part to one $321 million deal by Skydance Media for the Lantana Center and Lantana West in Santa Monica.

Sawtelle also made the No. 5 spot the April ranking. The properties were spread around Carson, Pomona, and West Adams, where CIM Group is expanding its footprint.

1. 2257 Colby Avenue — Judd Apatow & Leslie Mann | $12.4M

Filmmaker Judd Apatow and actress Leslie Mann purchased an office in Sawtelle for Apatow Productions for $12.4 million. Apatow Productions’ current office is on Pico Boulevard. Inter-Pacific Trading Corporation was the seller of the two-story property at 2257 Colby Avenue. It spans 15,200 square feet on a half-acre lot at the corner of Tennessee Avenue. Apatow founded the company in 1999. The couple are also in the residential game. In December, they purchased a Santa Monica penthouse for $14.5 million.
