LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 12, 2005--Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE:KRC) announced today it is under contract to purchase a 25 acre land parcel in the northern San Diego County submarket of Carlsbad, California. Following the closing of the transaction, which is expected to occur in the second half of 2006, the company plans to develop between 250,000 square feet and 350,000 square feet of office space on the site for a total estimated investment of approximately $75 million to $90 million.
The site, Carlsbad Oaks North, is located on Faraday Avenue, north of Palomar Airport Road in the city of Carlsbad, which is an emerging submarket in north San Diego County. Its well-planned transportation infrastructure, master-planned residential communities and top performing education institutions have attracted a diversified and growing business base of defense, life science, technology, recreation and service firms such as Invitrogen, K2, Isis Pharmaceutical, Ashworth, and ViaSat.
The planned acquisition continues Kilroy Realty's growth in San Diego and adds to the company's significant San Diego development pipeline, which now includes the potential to build approximately two million square feet of office space in addition to the 644,000 square feet of leased office product the company currently has under construction or committed.
