The property was acquired from New York Life Real Estate Investors and Harvest Properties. Headquartered in downtown Burlingame, Woodstock Development has been active in the Peninsula and East Bay Office and Life Science markets for over 25 years.
“One Bay has historically enjoyed a strong presence in the northern and mid-Peninsula markets,” said Woodstock Development’s President Kirk Syme. “The building features a timeless design while offering unobstructed panoramic Bay views that stretch as far as downtown San Francisco and across to the East Bay, and south along the Peninsula.”
One Bay currently offers a 10-minute shuttle service to the BART / Caltrain station in Millbrae. The building is also a short walk across Highway 101 to the Broadway Avenue retail and restaurant area and the Broadway Caltrain Station, which will have new weekday service commencing in 2021.
Syme highlighted, “Woodstock continues to place a premium on assets anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area where tenants can either conveniently walk or ride their bicycle to transit.”
One Bay is leased to a diverse mix of tech and professional service providers. The building’s largest tenant is Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services provider.
With near term lease roll and below market in-place rents, Woodstock is planning near-term capital improvements that will maximize the tenant experience and work functionality. Plans consist of interior and exterior enhancements, including upgrading all of the building corridors and restrooms, along with activating the shoreline and access to San Francisco Bay Trail with new landscaping and seating to provide Bay views.
Syme added, “We believe the Bayshore is a unique amenity and focal point for this asset, and will appeal to employers wanting access to this wonderful natural environment for its health benefits, such as walking, running, bicycling or simply enjoying its tranquil atmosphere.”
Woodstock is working on plans to enhance the fitness center and common areas with a coffee bar, community floor with open seating and gathering spaces.
The incumbent brokerage team of Cushman & Wakefield has been retained by Woodstock to continue to provide leasing services for One Bay. Mike Moran, Clarke Funkhouser, and Gary Boitano of the firm’s local Burlingame office will head the leasing efforts.
“Some of the most intelligent institutional capital, and world leading tech and science firms are investing in Burlingame,” said Mike Moran, Executive Managing Director. “Most recently, the announced Facebook Oculus campus down the street from One Bay is helping to redefine this entire area.”
Moran added, “One Bay has always presented itself as a highly competitive option for companies between South San Francisco and Menlo Park, and following the anticipated property enhancements as well as nearby transportation enhancements, will make for an even greater tenant experience.”
