SAN FRANCISCO- GlobeSt.com has learned that while sources involved could not disclose a sales price, an unidentified industry source tells us that TMG Partners and Fortress paid around $154 million for Cisco’s eight building complex in San Jose, CA. The eight office/R&D buildings are currently occupied by Cisco and totaling approximately 810,600 square feet on Tasman Drive.
Cisco, which will be leasing back the entire eight–building campus at closing, will vacate the property incrementally over time starting in January 2014 to accommodate a complete renovation of the buildings. Improvements will include extensive landscaping and exterior façade modifications, new site monuments and signage, parking lot and common area upgrades, including new seating and outdoor meeting areas.
In addition, updating of the interior common areas and building systems will be undertaken. The remodeled buildings will appeal to large tenants looking for contiguous space in a campus environment or a tenant seeking one, two or three buildings—with the added option to phase into a larger campus over several years.
