SAN FRANCISCO — HFF has arranged $384.8 million in refinancing for Genesis North and South Towers, two office and life science buildings in San Francisco that feature 717,883 square feet of lab and office space.

HFF secured two loans on behalf of San Diego-based Phase 3 Real Estate Partners Inc. The financing package included a $199.8 million, three-year loan for Genesis North Tower and a $185 million, five-year loan for Genesis South Tower. An undisclosed life insurance company provided the funds for the first loan, while a national bank provided the funds for the second.

Genesis North Tower, which was recently completed, stands at 21 stories and spans roughly 390,000 square feet. Genesis South Tower was completed in 2016, standing at 12 stories and encompassing approximately 328,000 square feet.

The two-property campus, which serves as the hub for the city’s biotech industry, is located adjacent to U.S. Highway 101 on the city’s south side. The site includes a seven-story parking garage.

Amenities include a performing arts center, a bakery and market, two fitness centers, meeting and conference center, and a shuttle service. Upon completion of Genesis North Tower, the fitness center at Genesis South Tower will be converted into amenity space for tenants such as a café and wine bar.

Tim Wright, Todd Sugimoto, Zack Holderman and Olga Walsh of HFF led the debt placement team.
