Sept. 10, 2018 — Hackman Capital Partners, LLC, a Los-Angeles based real estate investment and operating company, announced today the purchase of 1300 64th Street in Emeryville, California. The property, which includes a 25,138-square-foot building and off-street parking lot, follows on the heels of the company’s acquisition of a five-building portfolio, known as Emeryville Exchange, in June.
Five of the now six buildings, including the recent purchase, are situated in Jelly Bean Square, which takes its name from the largest building’s roots as the former Jelly Belly distribution center. The sixth building, called the Thoroughbred Building, is located approximately 10 blocks south of the square at 1250 53rd Street.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our presence in this dynamic East Bay market,” said Matt Landstrom, Vice President of Acquisitions for Hackman Capital. “With high demand and limited supply, Emeryville is quickly growing and evolving.”
According to Landstrom, the building at 1300 64th Street, which is available for lease, offers features that will appeal to a variety of tenants—including hard-to-find storage and distribution space, dock-high loading, large windows and skylights, plus a wooden bow truss roof. Leveraging those features, Hackman Capital intends to implement a capital program to renovate the building, which could include improvements for lab-related and office uses.
Cushman and Wakefield’s Michael Karp and Jeff Leenhouts, who represented the seller in the recent transaction, will also be retained as the property’s exclusive leasing agents along with Marc Ward.
Emeryville is located 10 miles east of San Francisco, between Berkeley and Oakland, and sits at the confluence of several major highways, three international airports, transcontinental rail, one of the world’s busiest bridges, and the Port of Oakland, one of the most active containers ports in the US.
The city is home to a diverse mix of major corporations—including Pixar Animation, Bayer, Novartis, Clif Bar, Jamba Juice, Peet’s Coffee and Adobe-Systems-owned, TubeMogul, a tenant in the portfolio. The city has the additional benefit of a highly talented labor pool, due to its proximity to UC Berkeley, UC San Francisco and Stanford.
