A joint venture between Partners Group and EverWest Real Estate Investors has acquired Burlingame Bay Office Park, a Class A office campus in Burlingame, Calif.

“Given the quality of the asset and diversified tenant base, the debt markets showed a strong interest in this opportunity,” said Senior Managing Director Chris Moritz, in a prepared statement. “Colony demonstrated a real understanding of the dynamics of the submarket and the strong position of property and our NKF Capital Markets team is pleased to have successfully closed on this transaction with them on behalf of EverWest and Partners Group. Burlingame Bay presents a rare opportunity to stabilize a Bay-facing asset in strong mid-Peninsula submarket.”

NKF Capital Markets’ Moritz and Vice Chairman Ramsey Daya of the debt and structured finance team, arranged the financing through subsidiaries of Colony Credit Real Estate Inc. In April, Moritz and Daya also secured $26.2 million financing for the acquisition and repositioning of 55 Green, a Class A office building in San Francisco‘s North Waterfront submarket.
