The tally of the five priciest industrial investment sales in May for Los Angeles County represented a sharp drop from the month before.

Carried by a $35 million purchase in Glendale, the top sales combined for just $75 million. That’s a 64 percent drop from the month before, when investors shelled out a combined $207.8 million.

Despite the drastic dip, L.A.’s industrial market has maintained its position as the hottest in the country in terms of overall demand and investment.

May’s list includes two properties in or near Hollywood, but otherwise they are spread from Torrance to Glendale. The Real Deal compiled the list based off property records from PropertyShark, as well as business registration records.
