American Assets Trust Buys La Jolla Commons Office Complex in San Diego for $525M

SAN DIEGO — American Assets Trust has closed on the acquisition of La Jolla Commons, an office complex located in San Diego’s University Town Center submarket, for $525 million. The asset consists of two office towers, an entitled development parcel and two parking structures.

Totaling 724,000 square feet, the LEED Platinum-certified office towers were built in 2008 and 2014. The 421,000-square-foot building is fully leased to LPL Financial. The second building, consisting of 303,000 square feet, is 72 percent leased to a variety of tenants, including U.S. Bank National Association, Paul Hastings LLP and Finch, Thornton & Baird LLP.

The purchase price of $525 million, less a seller credit of approximately $11.5 million, was paid with a combination of cash on hand and funds drawn against the company’s existing credit facility.

Loryn Arkow and Ankush Israni of Los Angeles-based Stroock & Stroock & Lavan represented the undisclosed seller, while James Mann and Jeffrey Gonzalez of Latham & Watkins represented the buyer in the transaction.
