Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC) announced today that it broke ground on 100 Hooper, a $270 million, 400,000 square foot project located in the SOMA district of San Francisco. Adobe, one of the largest software companies in the world, has leased 207,000 square feet of the project. 100 Hooper Street is a LEED Platinum-designed, premier development project fully entitled for 314,000 square feet of office and 86,000 square feet of Production, Distribution and Repair (PDR) space in two, four-story buildings on a 3.3-acre site. The site is located in the transformative SOMA neighborhood of Showplace Square at the intersection of Hooper Street and 7th Street, just west of Interstate 280 and in easy biking and walking distance of the vibrant residential neighborhoods of Mission Bay, Potrero Hill, and Dogpatch. In addition, the site is adjacent to the California College of Arts and within walking distance of the University of California, San Francisco Mission Bay Campus. The project is well served by public transportation, including direct access to the Mission Bay Shuttle, connecting BART and Caltrain, as well as the Central Corridor Subway. 100 Hooper is within a 15-minute walk of AT&T Park and the future Golden State Warriors Sports and Entertainment Center. It occupies a strategic location in a proven technology cluster surrounded by prominent technology companies, including Advent, AirBnB, Pinterest, salesforce.com and Zynga. Adobe, which has its main San Francisco presence just blocks from 100 Hooper, has signed a long-term lease for 207,000 square feet, or approximately 65% of 100 Hooper's office space. Adobe will occupy 155,000 square feet initially and 52,000 square feet within 15 months of construction completion that is projected to occur in 2018. The project will include large, efficient floor plates of approximately 50,000 square feet, an active communal plaza, inter-connecting sky-bridges, a roof top deck and views of San Francisco's skyline. The project's 86,000 square feet of PDR space is specifically designed for early-stage innovators, inventors, and craftspeople performing design, manufacturing, production and related activities.
