San Francisco, CA (June 28, 2018) — NKF Capital Markets has arranged approximately $81.5 million in financing for the acquisition and repositioning of the Burlingame Bay Office Park, a Class A office complex comprising two steel-framed, mid-rise buildings totaling 260,000 square feet overlooking the San Francisco Bay in Burlingame, California.
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 buyers, the global private markets investment manager, Partners Group (acting on behalf of its clients), and EverWest Real Estate Investors, LLC. The loan was placed with subsidiaries of Colony Credit Real Estate, Inc. (NYSE: CLNC).
Built in 1983 and 1998 the Class A property’s two buildings are situated directly on the San Francisco Bay within a parklike setting and clear visibility from Highway 101. The property features landscaped paths, bountiful natural light with views of the bay and coastal hills, all with an amenity base that includes outdoor patio areas, a bay side walking trail, fitness center, a bike room, conference room, and fifth floor outdoor space.
“Given the quality of the asset and diversified tenant base, the debt markets showed a strong interest in this opportunity. Colony demonstrated a real understanding of the dynamics of the submarket and the strong position of property and our NKF Capital Markets team is pleased to have successfully closed on this transaction with them on behalf of EverWest and Partners Group,” said Moritz. “Burlingame Bay presents a rare opportunity to stabilize a Bay-facing asset in strong mid-Peninsula submarket.”
