San Francisco (March 2014)—Newmark Knight Frank Cornish & Carey Commercial (NKFC&CC) Capital Markets is marketing for sale 1001 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco. Presently, the 106,777-square-foot commercial property serves as the broadcast and office base of KRON Channel 4 television. The broadcast company will be relocating to another facility this year, opening up several redevelopment opportunities for potential buyers.

Executive Managing Director Daniel Cressman and Managing Directors Mike Taquino and Kyle Kovac are exclusively marketing the site.

The property’s zoning allows for over 200 residential units. The opportunity is also well suited for medical office developers given its immediate proximity to the new $1.2 billion Cathedral Hill Hospital that is under construction, as well as tech-office investors given the drastically limited supply of available space for the rapidly expanding San Francisco tenant base.

The four-story property offers 8,000 square feet of highly improved television studio space and 61 subterranean parking stalls. It is positioned along Van Ness Avenue and O’Farrell Street, and boasts three street frontages.

“The flexibility of future redevelopment options will appeal to a wide array of potential buyers,” said Mr. Cressman.
