NKF Capital Markets has arranged approximately $26.2 million in financing for the acquisition and repositioning of 55 Green, a five-story, Class A office building located in the North Waterfront submarket of San Francisco.
NKF Capital Markets Senior Managing Director Chris Moritz and Vice Chairman Ramsey Daya of the debt and structured finance team in the San Francisco office executed the financing on behalf of the buyer, Brick and Timber Collective. The loan was placed with PCCP, LLC.
NKF Capital Markets’ San Francisco investment team of Michael Taquino, Kyle Kovac and Daniel Cressman represented the seller in the transaction. The seller, Triton International, has owned and occupied the asset for over 20 years.
Built in 1984, the Class A property is situated at the corner of Front and Green Streets in the heart of the North Waterfront District neighborhood. The five-story building boasts unobstructed views of the San Francisco Bay and includes 17 secured parking spots located in its basement garage. The property has been delivered vacant, affording the buyer an opportunity to reposition the asset as the submarket’s most coveted office building.
“Given the quality of the asset and extensive experience of our client in the submarket, the debt markets showed a strong interest in this opportunity. PCCP demonstrated a real understanding of the submarket and all of the drivers of tenant demand, and our NKF Capital Markets team is pleased to have successfully closed on this transaction with them on behalf of Brick and Timber,” said Chris Moritz. “55 Green presents a rare opportunity to reposition a high-quality, Bay-facing asset in one of the fastest growing submarkets in San Francisco.”
55 Green is within walking distance to many amenities including some of San Francisco’s most critically acclaimed restaurants and shops in North Beach and Jackson Square. The property is easily accessible and well-served by multiple modes of transportation including MUNI light rail, MUNI bus lines, BART, Golden Gate Transit, and the San Francisco Bay Ferry.
