Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark”) announces it has been awarded the leasing assignment of One Sansome Street, a 42-story premier office tower and LEED Platinum certified building in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. 

Newmark Vice Chairmen Mike Brown and Elizabeth Hart, Executive Managing Director Roman Adler and Managing Director Aaron Gillespie are representing the space on behalf of the landlord and joint venture, Barker Pacific Group (“BPG”) and PGIM Real Estate. BPG has over 30 years’ experience working in the San Francisco office market, having developed projects from the ground up, in addition to owning and managing One Sansome for the past decade. 

“We are excited to partner with the Newmark team,” said Michael Barker, BPG Managing Director. “Their world class services are sure to bring great prospects to One Sansome, and I am looking forward to collaborating to further upgrade and add value to the asset.” 

Situated at the intersection of Sansome St., Sutter St. and Market St., the Class A 623,824-square-foot building provides direct access to BART and Muni via a private tunnel. The property features panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Bay Bridge.

The asset is undergoing a major transformation with the renovation of the Conservatory and ground floor plane to include on-site restaurant and bar, tenant lounge, and conferencing facilities. The newly designed Conservatory provides for private and public open space and a unique venue steeped in San Francisco history for events and casual interaction. The BPG and PGIM Real Estate joint venture has invested over $90 million in upgrading the building since acquiring it in 2010.
