KRC Also Closes $24 Million Disposition

LOS ANGELES, Sep 20, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC), continuing its strategy of acquiring high-quality, well-located properties at below replacement cost prices, announced today that it has purchased 201 Third Street in the South of Market district of San Francisco for approximately $103.3 million. The 311,545 square-foot, 12-story office property is adjacent to the Moscone Center and is currently 90% occupied. The company plans to complete upgrades to the project over time which are expected to enhance the property's profile in this dynamic commercial district.

"With its prime SOMA location, adjacency to the Moscone Center, proximity to Caltrain, BART and the new Transbay Transit Center and larger floor plates, 201 Third Street is a great fit for the technology and media tenants who see San Francisco as an ideal business location," said Mike Sanford, Vice President - Northern California. "The property highlights one of KRC's key strategies of skillfully repositioning the property's common areas, amenities and tenant spaces - creating more open floor plans, higher finished ceilings, increased natural light and collaborative meeting areas - which will better accommodate SOMA's knowledge-based tenant demand."

Including this acquisition, year-to-date Kilroy Realty has acquired six West Coast office projects totaling approximately 1.5 million square feet for an aggregate investment of approximately $516 million. In addition, the company is in various stages of negotiations on three additional acquisitions that would total approximately $163 million.

The company also announced that it has closed on the sale of 10350 Barnes Canyon and 10120 Pacific Heights, a one-story office/R&D complex in San Diego, for $24 million and is in discussions on approximately $175 million of additional dispositions.
