LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC), continuing its strategy of acquiring high-quality, well-located properties that provide both strong near-term cash flows and attractive long-term appreciation potential at below replacement cost prices, announced today that it has purchased two office properties located in the cities of Bellevue, Washington and San Diego, California encompassing an aggregate of approximately 663,000 square feet of space. The total purchase price for the two properties is approximately $247.7 million.
In Bellevue, the company acquired Key Center for a net purchase price of approximately $215.0 million. The 488,000 square-foot office property is one of the premier office properties in the region and was completed in 2001.

Including these two acquisitions, year-to-date Kilroy Realty has acquired four office projects totaling approximately 1.0 million square feet of space that are located in key West Coast submarkets for an aggregate investment of approximately $380.8 million.
In addition, the company is in various stages of negotiations on six additional acquisitions that would total approximately $414 million.
