San Francisco—HFF has closed the $30.4 million off-market sale of Hookston Square, a two-building suburban office campus in the East Bay community of Pleasant Hill, Calif. In addition, HFF secured $21.5 million in financing for the buyer, Graham Street Realty.

HFF’s Associate Director David Dokko and Associate Garrett Calbert represented the seller, True North Management Group, and procured the buyer.

Situated on a 9.5-acre site at 3478 and 3480 Buskirk Ave., just east of I-680 and close to State Route 24, the 1985 Class B buildings are within easy reach of downtown San Francisco. Tenants at the 87 percent leased complex include John Muir Health, Pacific Business Center, Accelrys, Maze & Associates and The Source Group. Paramount Property Co. will manage the property.
