Share:

Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE:KRC) today announced that
it has signed a 12-year lease with a publicly traded multinational
software company for 100,850 square feet of office space at 250 Brannan
Street, located in San Francisco's South of Market (SOMA) district. The
prior lease was scheduled to expire in 2019. Acquired by KRC in 2011,
250 Brannan Street is a three-story, historic brick and timber building
located just blocks away from AT&T Stadium, the soon-to-be expanded Muni
Metro T Third Line and some of San Francisco's most renowned
restaurants, shops and cultural institutions.

KRC's Brannan Street properties have continued to generate strong tenant
demand. In May, the company executed a 375,000 square foot transaction
with Cruise Automation encompassing 301, 333 and the to-be-acquired 345
Brannan. "There is huge demand placed on premium quality creative space
by San Francisco's technology tenants. Kilroy's Brannan Street portfolio
represents the best the market has to offer, as evidenced by this recent
leasing activity," said Mike Brown, Executive Managing Director at
Newmark Cornish & Carey, who represented KRC at 250 Brannan. "Rent was
up significantly over the prior lease, which bodes extremely well for
KRC's Flower Mart project that will be the transformative highlight of
the Central SOMA Redevelopment Plan and is only three blocks from the
Brannan Street properties."

The lease adds to the tremendous leasing activity KRC has completed year
to date, which totals more than 1.9 million square feet of space. The
declining availability of space and rapid execution of leases underscore
the dynamics of high-growth companies continuing to cluster and expand
in innovative centers adjacent to transportation and amenities and using
the work environment to retain and attract the modern workforce.
