Pembroke Real Estate today announced the acquisition of 100 California Street in the heart of San Francisco’s Central Business District. On behalf of its investors, Pembroke facilitated the acquisition of the 288,619 sf 100 California Street from Embarcadero Capital Partners, Broadway Partners and PCCP, LLC. This is Pembroke’s first acquisition in San Francisco.

100 California Street is a LEED Silver certified office building comprised of 15 floors with flexible 20,000 sf floor plates and ground floor retail in a landmark location. The building is ideally situated in San Francisco’s North Financial District at the intersection of California and Davis Streets, one block from Market Street and all public transportation, across from the Embarcadero Center, and a short walk from the Ferry Building. With a corner location and high ceilings, the office spaces benefit from abundant natural light. An increasingly sought after business address for technology, creative and professional services companies, 100 California Street is currently 83% leased to a diverse tenant base that includes technology, insurance, engineering and communications firms.

Focused on enhancing long-term value, Pembroke intends to position 100 California Street as a premier Class A office property through significant enhancement work and a committed long-term ownership strategy. Restroom renovations and system upgrades will begin this year, followed soon thereafter by lobby renovations and the activation of public areas, as well as other improvements to meet the current and continually changing demands of occupiers.

100 California Street is an exciting first investment for Pembroke in San Francisco

said David Lucey, senior vice president and head of US operations for Pembroke.

This acquisition presents a unique opportunity to enhance and position the property as a signature asset that is fresh and relevant to companies today, with inherent flexibility to meet their future business needs as well.
