The Promenade in Downtown Berkeley Sells for Over $13.4MM
Graham Street Realty has acquired The Promenade in Berkeley, CA from Seagate Partners for just over $13.4 million. Set in the heart of downtown, The Promenade is a three-story 43,033 square foot, multi-tenant office building on a ±0.42 acre parcel located at 1936 University Avenue. There is also structured parking that includes 120 parking spaces and is elevator and valet serviced. Built in 1992, the building consists largely of smaller users and was nearly 90% leased to approximately 20 tenants at the time of sale. The largest tenant in the building (and only above 5,000 square feet) is UC Berkeley, which is also a key driver of the local market. Michael Speers with Cushman & Wakefield’s San Francisco office represented the seller in the transaction.
“The Promenade is a fantastic asset positioned in one of the most vibrant, unique and growing markets in the Bay Area,” said Mr. Speers. “Exemplifying its stability, desirability and great pride of ownership, more than half of the existing tenant base has occupied the building for at least 10 to 20 years.”
The Promenade features high end construction, flexible layout, abundant natural light, and high-end finishes throughout. The property is positioned near the UC Berkeley campus, the popular Arts District and provides a transit-oriented location just two blocks from the BART station.
