LOS ANGELES, Apr 25, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE:KRC) today said it has signed a lease agreement with Cardinal Health (NYSE:CAH) for a two-building campus totaling 411,000 rentable square feet in the Sorrento Mesa submarket of San Diego. Under the ten-year lease, Cardinal Health will occupy a to-be-developed 318,000 square foot state-of-the-art office and manufacturing building and an adjacent existing 93,000 square foot office building. Cardinal Health, ranked 16th on the Fortune 500, provides products and services to the health care industry. The lease is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2007.

The new 318,000 square foot building will be built on existing Kilroy Realty land holdings, Pacific Corporate Center - Lots 3, 4 and 6, and has an estimated total investment of approximately $78 million. With the addition of the new building, Kilroy Realty's committed development pipeline now totals approximately 861,000 square feet and is 100% preleased.

"Our development pipeline continues to generate value creation opportunities for our shareholders," said John B. Kilroy, Jr., KRC's president and chief executive officer. "Cardinal Health is a terrific tenant with strong credit and we look forward to adding them to our list of key customers," he added.
