In early 2003, BART's administrative offices, based in Oakland, California, were situated in four different and varied locations. CAC was awarded the exclusive representation assignment to assist BART.
After a thorough analysis of BART's internal requirements and an intensive search involving existing office space and build to suit opportunities, BART secured a very attractive 10 year lease for over 315,000 square feet of office space at Kaiser Center, prominently located at 300 Lakeside Drive in Oakland. BART was able to secure an anchor-tenant transaction with turnkey tenant improvements and attractive renewal options. CAC continues to represent BART in its real estate requirements and considers BART as one of its premier clients.
This transaction was one of the largest office leases in Oakland history and awarded the San Francisco Business Times Best Office Lease in Oakland in 2003.
