SKS and ProspectHill Joint Venture to Redevelop, Reposition San Jose Office Building for New Tenancy

SAN JOSE, Calif.–SKS Partners, LLC and San Francisco-based real estate investor ProspectHill Group today announced the acquisition of 3901 North First Street, a 65,000 square foot vacant commercial building in North San Jose. The partnership plans an extensive redevelopment to reposition the single story building into a highly attractive space for office and R&D uses.

“We were drawn to this opportunity by the asset’s prominent location, robust power supply, high ceiling heights of the existing building, and the opportunity to create a dynamic new office environment in one of the region’s most desirable submarkets,” said Gambhir Kaushek, Partner of San Francisco-based ProspectHill Group.

3901 North First Street is located in the North San Jose market with easy access to the 237 Freeway and within walking distance of both major VTA Light Rail line stops. The @First Retail Center, located one block away, is anchored by Target and features a wide range of dining and service amenities as well as Hyatt and Marriott flagged hotels.

“SKS-PHG is excited to transform the Property into a contemporary office/R&D building with a new glass lobby, SOMA-style interior improvements with exposed wood beams, ceilings and polished concrete floors. Other significant site improvements will include a vibrant outdoor courtyard accessible through glass roll up doors, new landscaping and several EV charging stations,” said Dan Kingsley, Managing Partner SKS.

Last year, SKS and PHG joint ventured with ASB Real Estate Investments to acquire The McClintock Building, a 103,000 s.f. Art Deco office-warehouse building in the Showplace Square/Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.
