HFF Closes $61.25MM Sale of 989 Market Street in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – HFF announced today that it has closed the $61.25 million sale of 989 Market Street, a 111,497-square-foot creative office and retail property in San Francisco.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Harbert Management Corporation. The asset was purchased by ASB Real Estate Investments for $61.25 million, or approximately $607 per square foot (excl. lower level storage/office). HFF secured $27.69 million in financing for the property for the seller in 2012.

989 Market Street is located near the intersection of Market Street and 6th Street in San Francisco’s Mid-Market
corridor. Completed in 1908, this historic, six-story office building underwent renovations from 2011 to 2013 and is 94 percent occupied. Current tenants include two industry-leading technology companies, Zendesk and Zoosk, and the ground floor retail space is occupied by national retailer Blick Art Supplies.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by managing directors Steven Golubchik and Nicholas Bicardo, directors John Simerlein, Nathan Blair and Mark Damiani, and senior real estate analyst Josh DiSalle. “Mid-Market is home to more than 20 percent of technology companies headquartered in San Francisco, and with the renaissance occurring in the immediate areas coupled with 989 Market proving to be a preferred creative building in the corridor, we saw a substantial amount of both domestic and international interest for the opportunity,” Golubchik said.
