Class-A Historic Office Building, 600 Battery, Sells in San Francisco

Jan 30, 2019

M & J Wilkow, in partnership with National Real Estate Advisors, LLC (“National”), announced the sale of 600 Battery Street, a three- story historic office building located in San Francisco, California. The 112,208 square foot property was sold to a partnership between Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, and TMG Partners.

M & J Wilkow and National acquired the office complex in June of 2001.  The property features a 360-degree view from its rooftop deck and occupies a full city block in historic Jackson Square. In 2011, 600 Battery Street earned the Energy Star designation for superior energy performance.

“600 Battery Street proved to be an exceptional investment for our investors.  The creative architecture and design of this loft office building has helped it remain 100% occupied every day since it was acquired nearly 18 years ago, and it has been exciting to watch the surrounding Jackson Square neighborhood develop into a highly desirable place to do business,” said Marty Sweeney, Senior Vice President of Acquisitions and Asset Management at M & J Wilkow.

Kyle Kovac and Michael Taquino of CBRE’s San Francisco office represented the Seller in the transaction.
