Chicago, IL (December 13, 2013) — A joint venture comprised of Kinship Capital and Pearlmark Real Estate Partners announces the acquisition of 2305 Mission College Boulevard in Santa Clara, CA. 2305 Mission College Boulevard is a 358,503 sq. ft. office and R&D campus located just off of Highway 101 in the heart of Silicon Valley and is master leased in its entirety to General Dynamics Advanced Information Systems.
Nick Thomson and Ethan Meers of Kinship Capital and Kevin Hites of Pearlmark Real Estate Partners were the lead executives on the transaction. Kinship Capital and Pearlmark were attracted to 2305 Mission College Boulevard because it is leased to a quality tenant in a great submarket. Mr. Hites stated, “Our partnership is very excited about this investment, given the property’s highly visible location and historical credit tenancy.” Mr. Thomson commented, “We are confident in the tenancy and location, and plan to hold 2305 Mission College Boulevard long-term. Kinship’s unique 30 plus year investment horizon offered us the opportunity to acquire a specialized building on a large piece of land. We are confident that the Santa Clara submarket will continue to strengthen over time as projects such as Levi’s Stadium and other mixed-use developments come online. Kinship and Pearlmark look forward to serving the needs of General Dynamics.”
