Buchanan Street Partners Divests of San Diego Office Building at High Value, Achieving Nearly $400 Per Square Foot

Newport Beach, CA (September 8, 2020) – Buchanan Street Partners, a Newport Beach, California-based real estate investment management firm, has completed the disposition of a 51,690-square-foot office building at 6059 Cornerstone Court West in San Diego, California for $20.6 million, or $398 per square foot.

Located within Cornerstone Heights Corporate Center, the building is 100 percent leased to Verimatrix, a San Diego-based company that specializes in content security for digital television services. The property was sold to a private buyer represented by Colliers International’s Senior Executive Vice President Joe Winkelmann.

Buchanan Street acquired the property in December 2014 as part of a two-building complex along with the adjacent 5959 Cornerstone Court West. The 2014 purchase price for the two-building complex was $23.1 million.

After executing a lease extension with Verimatrix, Buchanan Street began an extensive marketing campaign conducted by CBRE’s Matt Pourcho, Gary Stache, Anthony DeLorenzo and Bryan Johnson which continued throughout California’s mandated COVID-19 shutdown. Despite the effects of the pandemic, the property attained a high sales value given its stabilized tenancy and quality location.

“Office properties that are achieving the highest values are those which are fully leased with steady long-term income,” said Matt Haugen, vice president of Buchanan Street Partners. “With the property wholly-occupied by Verimatrix for another seven plus years, this predictable income stream was prized by buyers.”
