Jones Lang LaSalle Markets Block 40 for Sale in San Francisco

Last fully entitled commercial development site zoned for life science, general office/tech or medical office in Mission Bay Redevelopment Area

SAN FRANCISCO, June 27, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle today announced the firm has been hired to market “Block 40” for sale in San Francisco’s Mission Bay Redevelopment Area.  The 3.36-acre site is the last remaining commercial development site in Mission Bay zoned for approximately 650,000 square feet of life science, general office/technology or medical office use.  The site is part of a 303-acre master planned community that has achieved global prominence as a technology and biomedical research hub since it was established nearly 13 years ago.

Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction are Managing Directors Michel Seifer and Paul Lee and Senior Vice President Rob Hielscher.  Managing Directors John Manning and Joe Euphrat will be providing financing and medical office specialty expertise, respectively, while Executive Vice President Gregg Walker will provide life sciences expertise.  Managing Directors Chris Roeder and Wes Powell will provide local market brokerage expertise.

“We expect to garner a tremendous amount of interest in this site as it offers both an irreplaceable location in one of the most prominent innovation clusters in the country, as well as flexible development options,” said Seifer.  “It’s also got great visibility, fantastic proximity to world-class research facilities and has a myriad of transit and transportation options.  This site will be at the top of the list for investors around the globe.”

The Block 40 site is adjacent to both the UCSF Biomedical Research Campus and the under-construction, three- hospital UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay.  It offers numerous bus lines, the Mission Bay Shuttle system and two MUNI light rail system stops within blocks of the site connecting Mission Bay to CalTrain, BART, the Ferry Terminal and the terminus of the future high speed rail line.  It’s also less than a block away from the exit and entrance ramps to Interstate 280, and within walking distance to numerous amenities including the AT&T ballpark.
