Share:

Lincoln Property Company, led by Lincoln's LPC West team in Seattle,
along with joint venture partner Admiral Capital Real Estate Fund II, LP
("ACRE II"), have purchased South Seattle Business Park with plans for a
multi-million-dollar renovation of the five-building campus on 2.7 acres
in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood.

The project team plans to implement extensive improvements to the
campus, which consists of office and light industrial space. These will
include improvements to building exteriors and entries as well as adding
outdoor community space and new landscaping throughout the property.

"South Seattle Business Park is an excellent asset in a burgeoning
creative neighborhood," said J.P. Harlow, senior vice president of LPC
West. "We plan to reposition the property in a manner that will make
this well-located campus even more desirable to existing and future
tenants. With this acquisition, we are thrilled to continue Lincoln's
expansion in the Pacific Northwest, and to partner with Admiral on a key
office project in South Seattle."

South Seattle Business Park is located in the heart of a flourishing
commercial area along Highway 99 that is easily accessible from downtown
Seattle, the Port of Seattle, and the Seattle-Tacoma airport, creating
convenient arrival and departure for employees. The property at 4634
East Marginal Way is 94 percent leased to a variety of tenants in a wide
array of industries, including ride-sharing giant Uber's Greenlight, a
hub designed to provide in-person support to drivers. The property is
also home to Arena Sports, a 26,000-square-foot indoor soccer facility.

This is the first joint venture between LPC West and Admiral Capital
Group. With a focus on management, acquisition, and development, LPC
West's Pacific Northwest is rapidly growing with a portfolio of over 5.2
million square feet of commercial property. With ACRE II, Admiral
Capital Group invests in value-add real estate across major property
categories in top MSAs. The founders of Admiral Capital Group, NBA
legend and philanthropist David Robinson and Dan Bassichis, have pledged
10 percent of their profits to philanthropic causes in areas where the
fund invests.

"We are excited to expand our presence in Seattle and invest in this
rapidly transforming Georgetown neighborhood," said Daniel Bassichis,
co-founder of Admiral Capital Group. "South Seattle Business Park
provides an ideal opportunity to partner with Lincoln and invest the
capital needed to modernize the property and create one of Seattle's
premier office campuses."

Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood is a dynamic market with a growing
number of food, beverage, and shopping options. One of Georgetown's
creative corridors sits directly across from South Seattle Business
Park, offering employees immediate access to local offerings such as
Fulcrum coffee roasters, Two Beers Brewing Co., Seattle Cider Brewery,
and Kei Fit, a popular training gym.

Seattle is the nation's 15th largest metropolitan area and
has experienced rapid economic growth fueled by dynamic businesses
headquartered in the region, including Amazon, Microsoft and Starbucks,
along with smaller technology and biotechnology firms.
