Institutional quality office asset trades in San Diego’s Rancho Bernardo

JLL completes sale of The Pinnacle, a five-story Class A office building

SAN DIEGO, June 20, 2018 – JLL's Capital Markets experts completed the sale of The Pinnacle, a 110,110-square-foot, 93 percent leased Class A office building at 10920 Via Frontera in San Diego's Rancho Bernardo submarket. The buyer is a venture between Southern California value-add investor Harbor Associates and Denver-based real estate private equity firm Ascentris.

Senior Managing Director Lynn LaChappelle, Managing Director Bob Prendergast, Vice President Sach Kiriplani and Associate John Morrison handled the sale on behalf of the seller, The Muller Company.

"This property was attractive to buyers because of the opportunity to buy, at a significant discount to replacement cost, solid in-place income from credit tenants as well as the potential to add value over time through capital improvements and an aggressive leasing program," said LaChapelle.

Built in 2007, The Pinnacle's current tenants include Charles Schwab, Shopcore and the State of California.  The Property is located in Rancho Bernardo, one of San Diego's foremost technology, defense and corporate headquarter submarkets. Easily accessible to the area's major transportation arteries, the Property is within five miles of almost seven million square feet of retail amenities.
