A commercial printing company is relocating from Santa Monica to an 18,000-square-foot building that traded hands near Van Nuys Airport.

ColorNet Press, which is expanding operations in its new Valley location, is taking space at 6855 Hayvenhurst Ave. The property was purchased for $3.7 million by Kearta LLC in Los Angeles in a deal financed by City National Bank.

The building, which offers 6,000 square feet of office space and two ground-level loading doors, was sold by Van Nuys private investor Gabi Mashal at a price that amounts to $204 a square foot.

NAI Capital’s David Young and Chad Gahr, both senior vice presidents in the Encino office, represented Mashal in the deal.
