DivcoWest Taps PNC for Acquisition
of San Mateo Office Building

DivcoWest, a vertically-integrated real estate operating company focused on the acquisition and repositioning of office and industrial assets in high growth markets, acquired 101 Ellsworth, one of only two office buildings constructed in downtown San Mateo, California in the past 15 years. PNC provided financing for the acquisition.

101 Ellsworth is a six-story 87,504 square foot office building leased to a diverse mix of tenants. Ellsworth’s location offers unique access to the amenities of downtown San Mateo and the entire Bay Area. The building is situated just 1.5 blocks from the San Mateo Caltrain station, providing tenants convenient transportation options to San Francisco, San Jose and Silicon Valley.

PNC also provides services to DivcoWest’s treasury management group for their operating accounts.

Ken Wong, Senior Managing Director, DivcoWest, praised the smoothness of the process. “PNC is gaining a reputation for executing well in a short time frame on transactions like this one,” he noted. “The solution fit our business needs and PNC seamlessly resolved any issues that came up as we approached closing.”
