Hudson Pacific Properties Expands Presence In San Francisco Bay Area

LOS ANGELES, Jun 30, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) –
Hudson Pacific Properties, Inc.

HPP, +0.53%

today announced
expansion of its Northern California operations with the opening of a
regional office in Foster City to serve its growing real estate
portfolio along the San Francisco Peninsula and in Silicon Valley.

Hudson Pacific Properties will occupy approximately 22,000 square feet
in the 22-story tower of the Metro Center office complex. The Foster
City office will be the focal point for managing the firm’s 26
properties along the Highway 101 corridor, home to many of the nation’s
largest and fastest-growing technology and biotechnology companies. The
firm’s Northern California headquarters will remain in San Francisco.

“Our new Foster City office is perfectly situated to serve Hudson’s
growing operations throughout the San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon
Valley,” said Victor J. Coleman, the company’s Chairman and CEO. “A
fully engaged, strong local team is essential to executing our leasing
and management strategy, which requires significant collaboration with
partners and clients. This approach has worked seamlessly following our
acquisition of the Blackstone portfolio earlier in the year.”

In April 2015, Hudson Pacific Properties significantly expanded its
presence in Northern California with the purchase of Equity Office
Properties’ San Francisco Peninsula and Silicon Valley assets from
Blackstone. The transaction comprised 26 high-quality office complexes
totaling 8.2 million square feet and two development parcels in prime
Bay Area locations.

Throughout the Bay Area, Hudson Pacific Properties now owns and operates
33 office properties, including many landmark buildings, such as Rincon
Center, which continues to serve as its San Francisco headquarters.
Other marquee properties include 1455 Market in San Francisco, Towers at
Shores Center in Redwood Shores, and 3400 Hillview in Palo Alto’s
exclusive Stanford Research Park.
