Square Mile Furnishes $118M Loan on Bay Area Life Science Project 

Square Mile Capital Management LLC has originated a $118-million loan to finance the development of 777 Industrial, a planned 150,000-square-foot Class A, R&D and life science lab building to be built in San Carlos. The New York-based lender provided the construction financing to a partnership managed by Presidio Bay Ventures, led by K. Cyrus Sanandaji and Kabir Seth, and an institutional equity joint venture partner. 

Square Mile principal Eric Cohen said, “The San Carlos submarket is a burgeoning hub of life science activity and we are bullish on its continued growth. We continue to seek investment opportunities in the growing Bay Area life science sector with top quality sponsors and we believe Presidio Bay Ventures to be among the best in the region.”  

Currently the site of an existing car dealership, the development will entail building a four-story Class A building on top of the existing parking podium.
