SAN FRANCISCO, CA – August 1, 2017 – Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced today that it has secured a $15 million refinancing for 888 Tennessee Street, a 40,000-square-foot industrial building fully leased to Amazon in San Francisco, California.

Working on behalf of the borrower, The S.Hekemian Group, HFF placed the 10-year, fixed-rate loan with Principal Commercial Capital, Principal Real Estate Investors’ CMBS platform. Principal Real Estate Investors is also the primary servicer of the loan, proceeds of which will be used to refinance the existing mortgage on the property.

888 Tennessee Street is a warehouse fully-leased to Amazon. Located one block west of Third Street, the building is in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood, an area with multiple restaurants, breweries and other retail destinations in addition to proximity to Interstate 280.

The HFF debt placement team was led by director Chris Gandy.

“888 Tennessee is extremely well located in the heart of the San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood with convenient access and walkability to restaurants, shops and transit,” Gandy said. “This facility acts as the first Amazon Prime Now location in San Francisco, illustrating the extreme demand for last-mile facilities from the e-commerce industry. We feel that we are in the infancy of a shift to last-mile distribution facilities in dense, in-fill urban environments. The property’s location will only improve over time with the development of Pier 70, the Golden State Warriors Stadium, Uber’s HQ campus and the continued expansion of UCSF.”
