LOS ANGELES, Mar 25, 2002 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE:KRC) today said it has purchased the remaining interest owned by The Allen Group in nine San Diego office properties and three San Diego development sites. The net consideration was approximately $40.9 million.

Kilroy Realty had been the managing member and joint owner of two limited liability companies that held these properties with The Allen Group since 1999.

The acquisition was funded with $2.2 million in net cash and 1,398,068 Kilroy Realty, L.P. operating partnership units. In its role as managing member of the limited liability companies, Kilroy Realty developed the eight completed properties covered under the current transaction between 1998 and 2002 and held an option to purchase The Allen Group's interest in each building following its stabilization.

Once current development is completed at the one under construction property and the three development sites, the 12 acquired properties will encompass more than one million square feet of office space, increasing KRC's total holdings in coastal San Diego to approximately three million square feet.

The acquired properties include:

  • Four stabilized and 100% leased office buildings located in Del Mar totaling 423,874 square feet;
  • A 100% leased, 114,780 square-foot office building located in Del Mar, currently under construction and estimated to be completed in the third quarter of 2002;
  • Two stabilized and 100% leased office buildings located in Sorrento Mesa totaling 172,778 square feet;
  • Two stabilized and 100% leased office/biotech buildings located in Sorrento Mesa totaling 136,908 square feet; and
  • Three development sites in Sorrento Mesa totaling approximately 11.9 acres, with an estimated potential buildout of approximately 184,000 square feet.
