Jamestown Enters Seattle Market with Acquisition of Home Plate Center Office Campus in Sodo

The approximately 348,000-square-foot, two-building campus is located near T-Mobile Park and Lumen Field and has direct access to I-90 and I-5

Seattle, WA (September 22, 2021) -- Jamestown, a global, design-focused real estate investment and management firm, today announced its entry into the Seattle market with the acquisition of Home Plate Center, an approximately 348,000-square-foot, two-building office campus in Seattle’s South of Downtown (SoDo) neighborhood. Located near T-Mobile Park and Lumen Field, the property has direct access to I-90 and the I-5 freeways.

“With its large and growing tech industry, highly-educated workforce, and proximity to nature, Seattle continues to be one of the most desirable urban centers in the country,” said Michael Phillips, President of Jamestown. “We believe Home Plate Center presents a long-term differential value to a diverse range of tenants given its tremendous interstate access, ample parking, large floor plates, and location at the northern gateway of SoDo.”

Comprising of a six-story building at 1501 1st Avenue South and seven-story building at 1521 1st Avenue South, the campus includes approximately 329,000 square feet of office space and 19,000 square feet of retail, as well as a 546-space parking garage.

The property is currently 94% leased to a diverse roster of tenants working within technology, software, TV broadcasting, and government. Tenants include Facebook subsidiary Oculus, local news network KING 5, and Verizon.

Jamestown has a long-term ownership and management perspective and is recognized throughout the world as a community-focused, sustainable real estate firm. In 2020, Jamestown committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions portfolio-wide by 2050.

The transaction was brokered by Newmark.
