500 Terry Francois Boulevard
As we first wrote last year:

While the market is abuzz over Salesforce.com’s acquisition of 14 Mission Bay acres with plans to build 2 million square feet, it’s a plugged-in tipster that notes the never occupied and LEED Certified 280,964 square foot building at 500 Terry Francois Boulevard (“On the Waterfront in Mission Bay”) is scheduled to hit the courthouse steps this Friday.

Financed with a $90 million construction loan which was sold to a private equity group for $52.5 million earlier this year, foreclosure proceedings have begun against the building’s owners (CB Richard Ellis Investors) with $93,514,916.79 now due.

Lionstone, the private equity group, successfully foreclosed and took possession. And today, Lionstone is in contract to sell the property to the Silicon Valley based Sobrato Organization for $91 million.
We’ll let you run the numbers on that return. And don’t say you didn’t have the heads up.

  1. They assumed the risk from the original loan holder that obviously just wanted to cut its losses and move on. They then had to pay for all the foreclosure, holding, and selling costs until they could flip the building. Overall a good return but I’m sure there were some substantial dollars involved besides just the $52.5 purchase price and the $91 million gross sales price.

  2. wow
    regardless of the costs of carry, and front and back end transaction costs, this result is striking
    somebody didn’t assess the value of their asset very well – somebody who likely just lost their job
