Lincoln Property Co. is part of the joint venture acquiring the asset.

350 Rhode Island St.

A joint venture of Lincoln Property Co. and Korea Asset Investment Management has acquired a building occupied by the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office for $118 million, from PRP Real Estate Investment Management. In a simultaneous, separate deal, PRP sold the fee simple ownership to Safehold Inc. for $64.6 million.

Located at 350 Rhode Island St. in the Potrero Hill submarket, the building offers 127,100 square feet of office space across its four floors. Floor plates average 35,638 square feet and tenants have access to a parking ratio of two spaces per 1,000 square feet.

In 2018, the office underwent a renovation to suit the City’s needs. In a budget and finance report, the proposed lease terms included occupying 84,695 square feet in July 2018 for the District Attorney’s Office and up to 40,427 square feet in April 2020 for the Police Department. The lease term is for 15 years, through June 2033.

Adam Lasoff, Rob Hielscher, Michael Leggett, Miyeon Lee and Erik Hanson of JLL Capital Markets represented PRP in the building transaction. PRP represented itself in the deal with Safehold Inc., which is a publicly traded REIT founded by iStar in 2017, focused on ground lease investments. According to CommercialEdge, PRP acquired the property in 2019 for $134.2 million from Lexington Realty Trust, or $1,073 per square foot.
