The total estimated purchase price for the two properties is approximately $237.5 million.

In San Francisco, the company acquired 100 First Plaza for a purchase price of approximately $191.5 million. The 466,000-square-foot office property is located in San Francisco's South Financial District immediately adjacent to the city's Transbay Terminal transportation infrastructure project. The LEED Gold certified building is currently 76% occupied and 94% leased.

In Redmond, Washington, the company acquired Overlake Office Center, a 122,000-square-foot office property for a purchase price of approximately $46.0 million. The building is located immediately adjacent to Microsoft Corporation's corporate headquarters campus and is 100% leased to Microsoft through December 2014.

Including these two acquisitions, year-to-date Kilroy Realty has acquired nine office properties totaling approximately 2.0 million square feet of space that are located in the key coastal submarkets of San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco and greater Seattle for an aggregate investment of approximately $667.0 million. Leveraging its financial strength and deep knowledge of West Coast real estate markets, the company has pursued an acquisition strategy targeting high quality, well-located properties at below replacement cost prices, which represent strong near-term cash flows and attractive long-term appreciation potential.
