After boosting its management ranks by adding Matthew.

Brookwood acquired Carlsbad Executive Plaza, the Carlsbad Pacific Center, and Plaza I & II. The three assets total nine commercial buildings, taking the company’s San Diego-area portfolio to 24 buildings and more than 1.25 million square feet. In a statement, Brookwood said that it will invest $4.7 million in improvements.

Carlsbad Executive Plaza comprises four three-story buildings and 132,869 square feet. Brookwood will spend about $2.3 million to add new lobbies and common areas, renovate courtyards and remodel restrooms.

Plaza I & II is a two-building, 89,000-square-foot complex and is 89 percent leased. The new owner has lined up $900,000 for upgrades that will include a collaborative outdoor work and entertainment area.

Carlsbad Pacific Center’s 30 percent vacancy rate is the highest of the three properties. To improve that performance, Brookwood plans a $1.5 million renovation that will focus on common areas, fitness facilities and the creation of a collaborative outdoor area comparable to the one planned for Plaza I & II.
