CBRE Global Investors Acquires Two Class A Office Buildings in San Jose, California

San Jose, California – July 10, 2020 – A fund sponsored by CBRE Global Investors has acquired two Class A office buildings in San Jose, California. The buildings, collectively known as [email protected], each span six stories and include a total of 368,702 rentable square feet. The acquisition is part of the fund’s broader strategy to acquire and lease up properties in key office markets across the U.S.

[email protected] is LEED Gold Certified and includes 4353 North First Street, which was completed in 2016 and includes 181,042 square feet, and 4453 North First Street, which was completed in 2019 and includes 187,660 square feet. The high-end office buildings feature 14’ to 16’ slab-to-slab heights, expansive window lines affording panoramic views and abundant light, dramatic lobbies, and flexible 32,800-square-foot column-free floor plates that can efficiently accommodate a de-densified floor plan. Tenant amenities include a fitness center with a yoga studio and several large outdoor collaboration areas, a sought-after feature. The property is nearly 65% leased, with 131,000 square feet available for lease, which can accommodate single or multi-floor users.

[email protected] is located within the North San Jose office submarket, which we believe is well-positioned to weather an economic downturn,” said Gary Jaye, Senior Managing Director and Head of Commercial Acquisitions for CBRE Global Investors. “The San Jose area benefits from a highly skilled new economy workforce, nearby world-class research universities and hospitals, and a concentration of some of the most valuable companies in the world. The specific location of [email protected], situated just off I-237, also affords many tenant employees a desirable reverse commute, with quick access the area’s major roadways.”

Robert Perry, Executive Managing Director and Portfolio Manager for CBRE Global Investors, commented, “At [email protected], we plan to activate a best-in-class management and leasing team to enhance the current tenant experience and drive additional leasing. We also plan to upgrade underutilized common areas and enhance the property’s outdoor amenity offerings by adding more seating, installing an on-site food option and expanding the Wi-Fi.”

[email protected] is located along the heavily trafficked Interstate 237 corridor, providing prominent exposure and regional access via direct connectivity to major highways and to the freeway. The location affords many tenants a reverse commute to the East Bay and Peninsula areas and is home to several major national and global corporations.
