The Admiral and Daniel Bassichis at 4500 Great America Unveiling
Co-founded in 2007 by Robinson and Daniel Bassichis, Admiral generously pledges 10% of the firm’s profits to philanthropic causes in the communities where it invests, building on Robinson’s lifetime commitment to support education and lower income communities.
“We are excited to introduce 4500 Great America to the Silicon Valley marketplace,”
Admiral purchased 4500 Great America in December of 2012, and formed a joint venture with Silicon Valley-based South Bay Development Co. in June of 2013 to recapitalize and renovate the property. Extensive exterior and interior improvements are now complete, and outdoor collaboration spaces have been built into new landscaping features.
4500 Great America is Admiral’s first venture into Northern California. San Antonio-based Admiral, in partnership with USAA Real Estate Company, currently manages over $250 million of assets.
“Admiral continues to identify value-add opportunities through equity and debt investments in office, hotel, multi-family and retail properties valued between $15 million and $50 million in major markets nationally,”
A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Robinson is a ten-time NBA All Star, two-time NBA World Champion, two-time Olympic gold medalist and basketball Hall of Famer. He has a 25-year history of charitable work and in 2001 notably opened the Carver Academy, a high performing grade school in an area of high need in San Antonio and which recently joined the IDEA Public Schools network of charter schools.
