The property is appraised by the county assessor at $61 million and at one point it carried a $68 million mortgage from Bank of America, but that lien has been released in consideration of payment of a portion of the indebtedness, records show. The buyer is linked to a New York company whose manager is Mehran Kohansieh, also known according to other press accounts as Mike Kohan, whose activities are detailed here. He’s been buying properties despite a difficult time for retailers.

County records show a $4.5 million mortgage taken by the new owner.
