San Francisco Grand Slam

Success requires expertise, timing, and above all, judgement

In the aftermath of the 2000 internet bubble, our team identified an iconic six-story brick and timber building in the SoMa District of San Francisco. The previous owner had completed major seismic upgrades and tenant improvements totaling over $50 million in preparation for occupying the building. 

In 2003, we helped our client acquire the vacant property for $18.3 million in a distressed sale. We completed additional capital improvements to allow for multi-tenant occupancy and stabilized the building by mid-2005. Between 2014 and 2018, an investment-grade anchor tenant grew its footprint within the building, eventually occupying 73% of the space with a long-term lease. The property was sold to an institutional investor in July 2020 for $140 million.
