Harbor Associates, Taconic Capital Advisors Buy Five-Building Office Portfolio in Southern California for $41.7M
SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF. — A joint venture between Harbor Associates and Taconic Capital Advisors has acquired a five-building office portfolio located within the 153-acre Tri City Corporate Center office park in San Bernardino. An undisclosed seller sold the assets for $41.7 million in an off-market transaction.
Totaling 368,000 square feet, the buildings range from 70,000 square feet to 115,000 square feet. The portfolio, which is collectively 55 percent leased to 28 tenants, represents the only block of contiguous office space of more than 75,000 square feet in the Inland Empire.
The joint venture plans to re-position and lease-up the assets through a renovation program across the portfolio that includes upgraded building entries and lobby experiences, elevator improvements, new roofs and replacement of the original HVAC units. Upon completion, the portfolio will feature rent-ready speculative suites, electric vehicle charging stations, LED lighting retrofit, as well as new building and project signage.
Anthony Delorenzo, Todd Tydlaska and Sammy Cemo of CBRE represented the seller in the deal. The acquisition was leveraged with short-term financing from a subsidiary of Granite Point Mortgage Trust, which is externally managed by Pine River Capital Management.
