Tuesday, March 01, 2005 - CARLSBAD, CA-With land
increasingly scarce in the San Diego area, developers are searching throughout
the region and often becoming more creative in finding developable land. Such is
the case with land acquired by St. Croix Capital and its subsidiary, Kelly
Capital Corp. The company landed 4.6 acres of land on Faraday Avenue within the
Carlsbad Research Center.
Kelly Capital paid $3.7 million to EQBP-1, LLC, a Delaware Limited Liability Co., for the land. Plans at the site call for a nine-building office/R&D project that will be called Faraday Spectrum. Buildings will range in size from 3,000 sf to roughly 14,000 sf. The total sf at build-out on the site was not available.
TSA Contracting is overseeing the construction of the project. Geoff Sherman has joined the company as a senior project manager for the development. Estimated completion for development the project is January 2006 and St. Croix is currently accepting offers to purchase and lease the buildings. Dennis Visser, SIOR, and Mark Emerick of Grubb & Ellis|BRE Commercial represented both parties on the transaction and are marketing the project.
For St. Croix Capital, the Faraday Spectrum project marks the company's sixth development in the area. The company has also developed the Canyon Ridge Business Park, Carlsbad Crossroads I and II and several user build-to-suits. Among the corporate clients in the area are Callaway Golf, Invitrogen, Taylor Made, Viasat and Cancer Vax.
