Just to clarify, AssetMark is moving into the tallest of the buildings (A) but Bank of America is still leasing buildings B and D.

Hey! My company made it to Claycord. We finally made the big time!

Bank of America associates still reside solely in two of the four buildings.

The AssetMark company name is only on the one building — the one that’s the tallest and closest to BART. And there are still some bank associates on a few floors in this building.

$22 billion of consultanting assets? I’m glad I work for a company that actually makes something. A lot simplier for me to understand.

@ Fred,

AssetMark may be one of the companies that makes it possible for you to work for the company that you do and actually make something. Businesses need capital to start projects. Investments are part of the capital.

More history. In August 2011, BofA sold it’s Concord Technology Center, 4 office buildings and a parking garage, to Swift Realty Partners for $80m. In October 2013, Swift sold 2000 & 2001 Clayton Rd. to DevCo. West for $84m. Those two buildings are leased to BofA. AssetMark moved into the building in Oct-Nov 2013, originally under the name of Genworth Financial Wealth Management. Just as the AssetMark sign was being installed this past week, the BofA floors in 1655 Grant St. were being cleared out of all BofA equipment, the last remaining bank employees having been moved out in April.

AndAssetMark doesn’t occupy the whole building, only 2 levels.

“an independent strategic provider of innovative investment and consulting solutions serving financial advisors”
so they repackage high-risk mortgages and sell them to brokers who pawn them off on unwitting investors?
where have i heard that narrative before!?!

12 Here's your translation, Russ.. June 1, 2014 at 3:03 PM

“Investors”.

From my experience, money men enjoy making themselves sound more complicated and important than what they actually do. The trick to learning their language is to understand that 99% of the words in the sentence are hyperbole or window dressing to what they are actually saying.

13 Fred just told the entire world June 1, 2014 at 3:16 PM

his level of intelligence.

IQ’s probably close to his age.

Good by and good riddance to Bank of America. They cannot finish moving fast enough. Not good neighbors. It was always dirty around there.

15 joe citizen June 2, 2014 at 6:11 AM

The business description sounds like complete BS and the CIA are now posted in Concord.
Serious.

16 anon June 2, 2014 at 8:29 AM

i’m thinking along Russ’s line of thinking…

17 just a concordian June 2, 2014 at 10:38 AM

Are they hiring? I’d love to quit these daily SF Bart trips and bike to work.

I guess the City Council didn’t work on getting George Lucas to relocate to Concord, after his neighbors in Marin poo-pooed his idea for building a campus.

19 Sacto Rob June 2, 2014 at 3:23 PM

The “old” Bank of America building. I guess I’m old because I remember when there were nice, well built, single family homes in that neighborhood.

20 who? June 2, 2014 at 3:30 PM
