WHAT'S NEW WITH OFFICES?
|Allen Matkins’ Mike McFadden may be based in the firm’s LA office, where he chairs the Century City real estate group, but he actually does more office lease deals in San Francisco. Mike started doing Boston Properties’ leasing at Embarcadero Center, which was such a large and prestigious project that his career just took off toward the Bay Area. He also reps Vornado at 555 California, as well as the San Francisco leasing for Hudson Pacific Properties. Most deals can be done via phone or email, but “there are times when there’s no substitute for face-to-face interaction.” Mike recently completed a Tough Mudder, a grueling obstacle course developed by the British Special Forces. He’ll be the moderator for Bisnow’s San Francisco State of Office, June 28 at the Intercontinental Hotel. To find out whether he roots for the Dodgers or the Giants, sign up here.|
|Recently, Phil Tippett and his team at CBRE repped Centennial Towers in South San Francisco in an 87k SF lease to SuccessFactors. With 30 years in the commercial RE biz, the SVP leads the office leasing agency for the firm’s San Francisco office. When he’s not working on behalf of his other major clients—including Morgan Stanley, Ohio STRS, Stockbridge, Prudential, Barker Pacific, Myers Development, and Clarion Partners—Phil coaches his son’s baseball team. Other hobbies include surfing, tennis, and golf. Last summer, he went to Turkey, but on June 28 he’ll join Mike in The City as a panelist on Bisnow’s San Francisco State of Office event.|
