MILPITAS, CA – August 4, 2017 – Newmark Knight Frank represented the owner of Murphy Crossing, a 368,000 square foot, five-building Class A office/R&D project in the heart of Silicon Valley, as exclusive listing broker in connection with a 216,000 square foot lease transaction that brings the property to fully-leased status. Murphy Crossing was acquired in January 2017 by a joint venture between Northern California-based Embarcadero Capital Partners and New York-based True North Management Group. The lease agreement with Renesas Electronics America (which recently acquired Intersil Corporation), expands their existing premises by 90,000 square feet to include all of 915 Murphy Ranch Road, and extends the term of their existing lease on 126,000 square feet at 1001 McCarthy Boulevard and 933 Murphy Ranch Road. The Renesas transaction represents one of Silicon Valley’s largest leases of the year.

Executive Managing Director Shawn Kellenberger, Executive Managing Director Jeff Arrillaga, and Senior Managing Director Michael Saign represented building ownership. JLL represented the tenant.

Speaking for building ownership, Carol Donnelly, Embarcadero Capital Partners’ Director of Leasing, said, “We’re thrilled with Renesas’ decision to expand their footprint and extend their lease term at Murphy Crossing. Intersil has been an important tenant at the project for years and Renesas’ consolidation with Intersil at Murphy Crossing will create a vibrant campus environment for the combined companies.”

Built in 1994 by an owner/user (Octel), Murphy Crossing is situated on 20 acres and features high-quality design and construction, high ceilings, and large floorplates. The property is in the desirable Route 237 Corridor, offering easy access to Interstates 880 and 680, U.S. 101, and the VTA light rail system connecting to BART. Murphy Crossing features best-in-class onsite amenities, including a full-service cafeteria, outdoor collaborative areas, expansive lawns, and basketball and volleyball courts. Other tenants at the project include Aerohive Networks and SonicWALL.

“Our Newmark Knight Frank team is ecstatic with the successful execution of Embarcadero Capital Partners’ and True North’s strategic business plan for Murphy Crossing. We look forward to continuing our valued partnership with them in the future,” said Michael Saign. Shawn Kellenberger adds: “Embarcadero Capital Partners and True North have shown incredible vision in this submarket. They’ve matched that with their diligence and professionalism in deal making to repeat outcomes in a highly successful manner.”

Last summer, Kellenberger, Arrillaga and Saign represented another Embarcadero Capital Partners/True North joint venture on a full-building lease with FireEye at 601 McCarthy Boulevard, a 189,000 square foot headquarters building across the street from Murphy Crossing.

Read Full Story...

EL SEGUNDO, CA – May 10, 2016 – Joint venture partners Embarcadero Capital Partners, a full service commercial real estate investment, development and management firm, and Westbrook Partners, a global real estate investment management company, announced today that they have signed a lease with the U.S. General Services Administration on behalf of a sophisticated technology-oriented federal agency for 154,000 square feet, just under half of the building footprint at 777 South Aviation Blvd. in El Segundo. The partnership also announced that extensive renovations designed to convert the property into sought after creative office space will commence later this month. Terms of the deal are undisclosed.

Originally designed by celebrated Los Angeles modernist architect Craig Ellwood, 777 Aviation is a striking Class A office building built in 1968. The simple, elegant three-story, 309,088 square foot glass and steel structure typifies Ellwood’s iconic design aesthetic which fused the formalism of Mies van der Rohe with the informal style of California modernism. Embarcadero Capital Partners and Westbrook Partners acquired the property in 2015 with the vision of transforming the unique asset into an amenity-rich, multi-tenant campus which would appeal to modern tenants, particularly those in the tech sector, and would allow the partnership to capitalize on the momentum of the thriving West Los Angeles market.

“We are excited to begin construction on this extraordinary project,” said John Hamilton, Co-Founder and Principal of Embarcadero Capital Partners. “The product we are creating truly raises the bar on Class A office space in El Segundo.”

“This particular deal presents the perfect challenge for our team,” said Gary Palmer, Managing Principal of Westbrook Partners “It offers us the chance to add significant value to an exceptional asset in an established sub-market with excellent growth potential.”

To maximize the opportunity to deliver the most desirable product possible to the market, the partnership commissioned renowned architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM). They tasked the design team with blurring the boundaries between indoors and outdoors and with bringing daylight into building without losing leasable square footage. The partnership also charged the designers with taking full advantage of the building’s generous floor plates to offer opportunities for large, open and creative workspaces. The design incorporates a soaring new atrium with circular skylights that will illuminate the surrounding offices, which have expansive windows that look into the 96-foot long by 48-foot wide atrium space. The skylights will also disperse light across a new 40-foot wide stadium stair designed to accommodate small and large group assemblies.

The design also adds high-quality building amenities including an on-site café, a fitness facility with locker room and showers, and Wi-Fi enabled common areas. Other key core and shell renovations feature a welcoming new front entrance, upgraded glazing throughout the building and new restrooms. Additionally, new building systems will be installed including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, elevators and data infrastructure. Core and shell construction is slated for completion in April 2017.

To reinvent the property into a campus-like atmosphere that activates the entire site, LRM Landscape Architecture was hired to transform the outdated grounds into new creative and collaborative areas. The new landscape design will incorporate an existing historically significant sculpture created by famed artist George Sugarman in 1969. The work, entitled “Yellow to White to Blue and Black,” is widely known and highly regarded among modern art aficionados as an example of Sugarman’s pioneering of fabricated steel, pedestal-free sculptures and his fresh experimental approach. Additionally, the grounds will feature several outdoor meeting spaces, fire pits, a dog park, bike sharing facilities and food truck stations.

777 Aviation offers tenants an excellent business address in the heart of El Segundo’s new creative office hub located within walking distance to significant dining and retail amenities. The property provides unparalleled access to LAX, the 105 and 405 freeways and the highly desirable neighboring communities of Santa Monica, Venice, Playa Vista and Manhattan Beach.

Beth Peterson, Director of Leasing at Embarcadero Capital Partners will oversee leasing on behalf of the partnership. She can be reached at bpeterson@ecp-llc.com or (562) 572-5070. For further information please visit www.777aviationblvd.com. Tony Ranger and Joe King of Madison Partners have also been retained by the partnership to assist with leasing. They can be reached at tranger@madisonpartners.net and jking@madisonpartners.net or (310) 820-5959.

SAN MATEO, CA – February 18, 2016 – On February 17th, the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of NAIOP Commercial Real Estate and Development Association, the nation’s leading trade association for developers, owners and investors in the office and commercial real estate industries, hosted its 4th Annual Best of the Bay Commercial Real Estate Awards, honoring the best deals and deal-makers of 2015. Embarcadero Capital Partners and Deutche Asset Management were presented with the 2015 Best Peninsula Lease Transaction Award in connection with a camera technology company’s recent expansion at Clearview.

“We are delighted to be a recipient of NAIOP’s award for Best Peninsula Lease Transaction of 2015,” said Carol Donnelly, director of leasing at Embarcadero Capital Partners. “We couldn’t be happier about our tenant’s decision to expand their footprint at Clearview.”

Clearview, a joint venture between Embarcadero Capital Partners and Deutche Asset Management, is located on 22 dramatic acres in San Mateo at the top of the ridgeline of the San Francisco Peninsula. The project comprises five office buildings and a sixth building, known as 3025 Clearview Way, which is currently under construction with estimated delivery in Q3 2016. The new 110,876 sf building has been pre-leased to an existing tenant in connection with an extension of its lease term at the property. The tenant already occupies another 200,318 sf at the project.

The camera technology company’s expansion space, which is being constructed to LEED certification standards, will offer large open floor plates, high-end tenant build-outs, signage opportunities, and spectacular views from an expansive glass line. The exterior areas surrounding the new building will be developed into collaborative workspace and recreational amenities.

“The building is going to be stunning,” said Donnelly. “Everything is being constructed with the tenant in mind. We’re looking forward to watching their business continue to thrive at Clearview for years to come.”

Interior renovations are planned for Sunset Publishing Corp.'s previous headquarters at 80 and 85 Willow Road in preparation to house new tenants of the office space.

According to Carol Donnelly, spokesperson for Embarcadero Capital Partners, the current owners of the property, applications for permits have been submitted to the city of Menlo Park and renovations are expected to be completed at 85 Willow Road in April and at 80 Willow Road sometime in May.

The property, which was acquired by Embarcadero Capital Partners in December 2014, now shares partial ownership interest with Deutsche Asset Management, a move announced Jan. 13.

Deutsche Asset Management and Embarcadero Capital Partners have partnered before as office space developers of the Clearview business park in San Mateo, where GoPro's offices are located.

The two former Sunset buildings, together called "Willow Park," contain 85,732 square feet of office space in a large park-like setting, according to Catherine Wooters, spokesperson for Deutsche Asset Management. The building at 80 Willow Road was designed by Cliff May, described as the "father of the California ranch-style home."

"We strongly believe that (Willow Park) will benefit from a cosmetic and mechanical upgrade focused on preserving the unique character and the amenities that make this property so attractive," said Todd Henderson, Deutsche Asset Management's real estate head.

Ms. Donnelly said the footprints of the buildings will not change, and that the renovations are intended to "marry some of the historic elements with modern." The gardens are still being maintained.

They're actively marketing the building to new tenants, she said.

Office Park'd: SOM Plans to Update Vintage Craig Ellwood in Los Angeles

Much has been written about the changing nature of workplace. In the last decade, cubicles have been banished, warehouses converted, and foosball tables over-referenced. But what to do with the office buildings that once housed the man in the gray wool suit? A recent design by SOM’s Los Angeles office reinvents Craig Ellwood’s tailored office building at 777 Aviation Boulevard, converting the late 1960s steel and glass structure that once was Xerox’s headquarters (previously Scientific Data Systems) into a multi-tenant campus that appeals to El Segundo’s ever-expanding tech set. Suits out, bike racks in.

Clients Embarcadero Capital Partners and Westbrook Partners tasked the architects with bringing daylight into the three-story, 310,000-square-foot building without losing leasable square footage on each of the 103,000-square-foot floor plates. Carlos Madrid, the project designer at SOM, described the firm’s approach as a counterpoint to Ellwood’s buttoned up design. “It’s Mies van der Rohe and California Modernism together,” he explained, emphasizing the desire to blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors.

To get light deep into the heart of the structure, the team’s proposal shows an enlarged atrium. Sawtooth skylights will pour light across a new 40-foot-wide stadium stair (for hanging out or assemblies) and into the surrounding offices, which have windows that look into the space. There are plans for new interior and exterior balconies on the second and third floors plus amenities that are now typical for creative offices: a cafe, a gym (with showers and lockers), and a bike rental program. Finishes will complement and contrast Ellwood’s bronzed steel.

Expected to be complete in 2017, perhaps the most striking update to Ellwood’s structure will happen outside the building itself with the development of a campus-like landscape. “This type of classic office building is quite passive—it just sits in its parking lot,” noted Madrid. “We are collaborating with the landscape architects to create a design that activates the whole site.” SOM is working with Culver City–based LRM Landscape Architecture on the design. George Sugarman’s brightly painted aluminum sculptures (created for Xerox in 1969) will remain, while additions include outdoor work spaces, fire pits, and even a dog park.

New York City-based Deutsche Asset Management’s Alternatives and Real Assets (ARA) has acquired a 50 percent interest for roughly $1,000 per square foot to buy into the 85,732 square foot office building in Menlo Park located at 80 and 85 Willow Road, according to sources familiar with the transaction. At that valuation and equity, Deutsche’s investment would come to roughly $42.8 million.

Deutsche declined to comment when contacted for this story.

The operating partner on this property is an affiliate of Belmont-based Embarcadero Capital Partners. This real estate investment company had acquired the property for $78 million in December of 2014.

Deutsche’s interest in Silicon Valley is underscored by this partnership. “The demand fundamentals across Silicon Valley continue to remain very strong. Willow Park is a unique asset strategically located in the dynamic Menlo Park market. We strongly believe that Willow Park will benefit from a cosmetic and mechanical upgrade focusing on preserving the unique character and the amenities that make this property so attractive,” says Todd Henderson, head of real estate in the Americas for Deutsche ARA.

The property on Willow Road is a low-rise asset covering two buildings. This project is attractive to technology and other innovative firms through its open, park-like setting with creative space. The asset was constructed on 9.85 acres of land.

The project is located near public transportation through the Menlo Park and Palo Alto Caltrain stations. It is a five-minute drive from both of these stations. It is also close to Highway 101.

The leasing of space at the property is handled by Mark Bodie and Gregg Walker of JLL.
