The Atrium at 1650 65th Street, Emeryville, CA

SAN FRANCISCO, CA –- Holliday Fenoglio Fowler, L.P. (HFF) announced it has closed the $30.5 million sale of The Atrium at 1650 65th Street in the San Francisco Bay Area community of Emeryville, California.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, Griffin Capital Corporation.  Gerding Edlen purchased the asset.      

The Atrium is a 127,246-square-foot, value-add, one-story building.  Renovated and seismically upgraded in 2004, the building was originally constructed as a warehouse in 1953 and converted into office space in 1990.

 The site could be redeveloped into creative office, retail, mixed-use or multi-housing space.  The Atrium has immediate access to Interstate 80/580, which provides a direct route into both San Francisco and Oakland, via the building’s proximity to Shellmound Street, a major East Bay thoroughfare.

 The area surrounding the property is home to 10 corporate headquarters, including Clif Bar, Leapfrog and Pixar Animation.  

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by senior managing director and co-head of HFF’s San Francisco office Steve Golubchik and associate director David Dokko.

“The Atrium presents a unique opportunity to control a large block of office space in an infill urban location just minutes from downtown San Francisco,” Golubchik said.  “With the added potential for redevelopment, the Atrium is a great fit for a group with Gerding Edlen’s expertise.  The long-standing view of Emeryville as an institutional market continues today.”
