Orrick’s Real Estate Team Advises on the Two Largest San Francisco Office Sales of 2019


We advised a partnership that included developer Gerson Bakar & Associates on the sale of Levi’s Plaza to Jamestown. The Plaza is an office and retail complex that spans nine buildings along San Francisco’s Embarcadero waterfront. Home to Levi Strauss’ headquarters, the sale is the largest office sale in San Francisco in several years. In June 2019, we also advised Zynga on a complex sale leaseback of its corporate headquarters for $600 million.

“A sale of this size is always complex,” said Michael Liever, who led the Orrick team. Kelsey Kummer, Dustin Calkins, David Gotsill, David Burkhart and Debbie Abernathy also advised on the Levi’s Plaza transaction.
