Downtown Sacramento Office Gem Hits Market

JLL Capital Markets handles sealed bid auction of one of Sacramento's first Qualified Opportunity Zone assets to come to market - 1130 K Street

May 09, 2019

SACRAMENTO CA, May 9, 2019 – JLL Bay Area Capital markets experts have begun the process of marketing for sale 1130 K Street, a 140,908 square foot historic office building in the heart of downtown Sacramento’s K Street Corridor.

The sale is being conducted via a sealed bid auction with all bids due to JLL by Wednesday, June 19, 2019. (For more information, see here or contact Erik Hanson of JLL at 415 395 4964 or via email at   

Built in 1924, 1130 K Street was originally the flagship store of Sacramento-based department store chain Weinstock’s. Located along Sacramento’s paramount urban boulevard, lined with restaurants and shops, it served as the epicenter of Sacramento through the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s. The ‘70s brought a flight to the suburbs and when Weinstock’s relocated, the asset was converted to office use and a mezzanine story added.

Today, Sacramento’s urban core is regaining its vibrancy through an influx of residents choosing to live along the tree-lined residential neighborhoods and enjoying the burgeoning commercial and entertainment districts. Development of the Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings, and The Kay, the former K Street Mall, has injected new vitality into K Street, increasing foot traffic and stimulating economic activity. K Street Corridor’s inclusion into the 2017 Qualified Opportunity Zone legislation provides tax incentives to draw long-term investment for continued investment and development.

“This is an exceptionally well-placed asset and a tremendous opportunity for investors looking to capitalize of the strength of Sacramento’s downtown office market,” said Erik Hanson of JLL. “1130 K has the potential to be redeveloped and positioned as one of the Capitol’s premier creative office locations,” he added.

With the building currently 31.2 percent leased, this provides investors with an opportunity to renovate and reposition the building for creative users as well as lobbyists, law firms, nonprofits and other ancillary users requiring a presence close to the Capitol.

Acknowledged as one of the top metro areas in the country for inflow of residents from the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento is also experiencing strong business growth. JLL is currently tracking more than 3.5 million square feet of tenant demand in the city.
