Bayside Technology Park Fremont Cannae Partners Blue Vista Capital Management Osprey Capital 47100 Bayside Parkway

Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark”) announces it has arranged the $16.55 million (roughly $269 per square foot) sale of Bayside Technology Park, a 61,454-square-foot R&D office building in Fremont, California. 

Newmark Senior Managing Director Chris Shaffer and Kurt Heinrich represented both the buyers, Cannae Partners and Blue Vista Capital Management and the seller, Osprey Capital LLC. 

“The East Bay is a highly sought-after office submarket in the Greater Silicon Valley, propelled by regional companies looking to grow out of San Francisco and North San Jose/Santa Clara,” said Shaffer. “Demand for high-end R&D office product in this vicinity remains high. Moreover, this is a very well positioned Class A asset, especially because of its size for a HQ facility.” 

“We are excited to add this asset to our portfolio and are optimistic about the Silicon Valley and Fremont specifically,” said Jamin Seid of Cannae Partners. “47100 Bayside has excellent optionality to be an office headquarters, high-end manufacturing or life science product. We are looking forward to renovating and leasing up this building.” 

The current tenant will soon vacate the premises, and Newmark will be marketing the building for lease in Q2 2022. The Greater Fremont/Milpitas market gained momentum in the second quarter of 2021 as tours and deal flow activity have increased significantly, according to Newmark Research. Rents held firm quarter over quarter and vacancy rates declined to +/-7 percent. The lab sector continues to be the strongest, with demand continuing to outpace inventory.
