KBS acquired the property in November 2014 for nearly $33.8 million.
“We are very pleased with this investment,” said Rod Richerson, western regional president of KBS. “Quickly stabilizing the asset and maintaining an average leased percentage of 96.24 percent during our hold period, the asset has generated an annual property level return to our investors of 17.73 percent over our 3.5-year hold period.”

The property earned an Energy Star label for its operating efficiency with sustainable elements, including low-flow fixtures and recycled content in carpet and ceiling tiles.
