Newmark Completes Sale of Value-Add R&D Campus
in Sunnyvale’s Moffett Park

Newmark1 announces it has completed the sale of 333 and 385 Moffett Park, an 87,120-square-foot value-add research and development (R&D) campus in Sunnyvale, California for an undisclosed amount. The campus is comprised of a 75,896-square-foot two-story building and an 11,224-square-foot one-story building.

Newmark Executive Vice Chairman and President, Western Region Capital Markets Steven Golubchik, Vice Chairman Edmund Najera, Senior Managing Director Jesse Millman, Senior Managing Director Jonathan Schaefler and Director Darren Hollak facilitated the transaction. The seller was real estate asset management company, Cilker Orchards Management Corp, and the buyer was Ellis Partners.

“333 and 385 Moffett Park provides the investor with a flexible business plan to either
reposition the existing asset or plan for future redevelopment within the Moffett Park specific plan,” said Golubchik. “Despite challenging market conditions, this property benefitted from a competitive bidding process with participation from a diverse mix of capital profiles.”

“Ellis Partners is thrilled to be purchasing this unique freeway frontage property”, said Kevin Bocci, Vice President of Acquisitions at Ellis Partners. “We look forward to further expanding our footprint in Silicon Valley and appreciate Newmark’s professionalism in facilitating this transaction”.

The campus is nestled within Moffett Park, a 1,156-acre business park that sits at the
northwest corner of Sunnyvale. The central location provides convenient access to executive and employee housing throughout the San Francisco Peninsula via highways 237 and 101. As the only industrial area in Sunnyvale directly served by light rail transit, providing ready access to Silicon Valley, the rest of the Bay Area and several airports, the larger than average parcels and limited height restrictions give Moffett Park intrinsic geographical attributes that make it a unique and premier location in Silicon Valley.

The Moffett Park submarket has remained a top performer in the San Francisco Bay Area Market, driven by robust demand from technology leaders including Google, Amazon and Facebook. The availability rate within Moffett Park currently remains at 6.8% with few high quality options available for tenants, according to Newmark Research.
