King Asset Management has been a leader in commercial Class A office development concentrated in Palo Alto and the San Francisco Peninsula. Founded by Chuck King Jr. in 1965 under the name Charles King & Associates, King Asset Management has grown from one of the largest industrial developers in the San Francisco East Bay to one of the largest commercial office owners in Palo Alto.
King has completed over 150 projects totaling upwards of 4.5 million square feet, ranging from mixed-use, Retail/Office concepts, to high-end office and industrial. Though King Asset Management continues to diversify into non real estate related investments, their emphasis and passion remains commercial real estate. Palo Alto has become the home to King Asset Management. Since 1987, they have been involved in the acquisition and redevelopment of 18 buildings in this downtown submarket.
King Asset Management offers an “in-house” approach to Property Management. The properties that we own are the only properties that we manage. Because we have no interest in managing properties outside our portfolio, we take care of our buildings and tenants as if we expect them to be our tenants forever. An attention to detail is what makes us different. With a manageable portfolio, we pride ourselves on the level of service we are able to provide our tenants. Our demanding tenant base includes household names ranging from the technology sector, venture capital industry, financial services, and medical profession. Discretion, privacy, security and friendliness are of utmost importance. With this in mind, we strive to provide expedient and non-invasive assistance to our tenants at all times.
King Asset Management controls investment, leasing, construction, and administrative functions for the King family and it’s various entities. The primary focus of King Asset Management’s investment strategy is commercial real estate development and traditional money management. The current real estate asset base consists of 440,000 square feet of office and industrial space-located primarily on the San Francisco peninsula. In addition to sponsoring its own development, King Asset Management provides equity to a number of additional real estate partnerships throughout California.
