sjNew York City-based Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, formerly known as RREEF Real Estate, expects to achieve an initial yield of 6 percent on the 431,490 square-foot Oakmead West buildings in Sunnyvale that it has acquired from Equity Office.


Asset paid $275.7 a square foot in an all-cash transaction, according to industry sources with first-person knowledge of the exchange.

The acquisition is one of three that the real estate manager has made on behalf of three institutional investors for $266 million total. The other two properties are an 89,074-square-foot Calabasas, Calif., neighborhood shopping center, The Courtyard at the Commons, and a 319,844-square-foot Seattle office property at 605-625 Union Station.
