Opus East and West (which developed Park Terrace at 325 Berry in Mission Bay) will file for federal bankruptcy protection, with Opus East expected to go the chapter 7 route while Opus West is expected to reorganize under chapter 11.
Opus West has been active in the Bay Area, developing 75 acres of the 120-acre Sierra Point office campus in Brisbane in the late 1990s. In 2007, Opus West announced plans to build more office space in Brisbane — a 448,000-square-foot, $225 million office complex at 3000 Marina Blvd. — but the economy soured and the developer never went forward with the project.
Opus North and Northeast are expected to continue as-is. No word on how the Opus West filing will impact (if at all) any future Park Terrace claims.
