Graymark Capital Makes 92,477 SF R&D Acquisition In San Diego, CA

San Diego, CA, May 2019 – Graymark Capital, Inc., has acquired a 92,477 square foot R&D property in the Sorrento Mesa submarket of San Diego.

10455 Pacific Center Court is an institutional quality, two-story R&D building with  large floor plates, extensive glass line, modern lobby and canyon views. The asset is located in Sorrento Mesa, the most dynamic submarket in San Diego, which has benefitted from growth in the telecom, technology and life science sectors, including Qualcomm, Verizon and Google in the telecom/technology space and Dexcom, Nuvasive and Becton-Dickson in the life science space.

The project was purchased under Graymark Capital’s reposition strategy, which focuses on well-located, infill assets that can be enhanced through modern renovation and professional management. Graymark plans to complete a cosmetic upgrade of the property with modernized exterior, improved outdoor amenity space and new landscaping. The project is currently 45% occupied by two local tenants, AnaptysBio and Trex Enterprises with the remaining vacancy in a warm shell condition.

This property was an appealing investment for Graymark due to the quality of the asset, desirable location, discount to replacement cost and excellent market fundamentals.  10455 Pacific Center Court is Graymark Capital’s 4th project in San Diego.

The HFF investment advisory team representing the seller was led by senior managing director Nick Psyllos and senior associate Kara Mathis.
