Large Oakland office complex fails to meet loan obligations and is foreclosed upon and seized

Foreclosure of Oakland office complex highlights struggles in post-COVID real estate market

The Landing, a prominent office complex in Oakland, has been seized through foreclosure, revealing the challenges faced by the Bay Area real estate market in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The two-building office center, located at 303 and 333 Hegenberger Road, was purchased for $40.6 million in 2019 by Vertical Ventures, a well-known real estate investment firm. However, following the foreclosure, the property’s value plummeted to $14.75 million, marking a significant decline. The lender, Ares Commercial Real Estate Management, took ownership of the complex, highlighting the struggles faced by commercial real estate in the current economic climate. The office complex, totaling 198,200 square feet, is a prime location near Oakland International Airport and Interstate 880. This development serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by the real estate sector in the post-pandemic era.
