SAN FRANCISCO - PCCP, LLC announced today it has provided an $18.3 million senior loan to Basin Street Properties to acquire a leasehold interest of Shoreline Office Center in Mill Valley, Calif. A portion of the loan will also be used to stabilize the property, which is currently 60 percent leased. Basin Street has been working with several potential tenants on lease negotiations which will significantly increase the property’s occupancy in the near term.

Situated on 9.83 acres, the property is located five miles north of San Francisco and directly on the San Francisco Bay at 100 Shoreline Highway. Shoreline Office Center totals nearly 100,000 square feet of space in two Class A office buildings.

“PCCP has enjoyed a very positive lending relationship with Basin Street, and has completed several transactions with the firm,” said Jim Galovan, managing director with PCCP, LLC. “PCCP was able to offer Basin Street a senior loan that fit with its financing requirements for fast execution with a trusted lender who they believed would close. The property fits well within the firm’s North Bay area focus and caters to its strength of managing quality, multi-tenant properties.”
