Tech Giant Has Now Taken At Least 475,000 Square Feet In Three Business Parks In Silicon Valley City
By Randyl Drummer
Apple Inc. has leased a new 156,000-square-foot building in downtown Sunnyvale, CA, the third large lease by the technology company in the city since last fall.
Long associated with its headquarters in Cupertino, Sunnyvale’s southerly neighbor, Apple will occupy the building in the Sunnyvale Town Center at 250 S. Mathilda Ave. at McKinley Avenue in about the third quarter, according to a news release from Sunnyvale City Manager Gary Luebbers.
In a deal revealed last month, Apple signed a long-term lease for 215,472 square feet for four buildings at E. Arques Ave. in the nearby Sunnyvale Research Center, 12 miles from Apple’s headquarters. Last fall, Apple signed a lease for buildings of 44,000 and 64,376 square feet at 995 and 975 Benicia St. in the Peery Park submarket.
Last May, Nokia merged several of its Bay Area offices into a new regional office on Mathilda and Washington avenues in the Sunnyvale Town Center, next to what will become Apple’s building. Nokia brought about 500 employees to staff the Town Center site, and Apple is expected to add about 400 employees there.
Luebbers called the Apple’s signing “an important step forward” for the Town Center redevelopment project, which like numerous other properties, has run into challenges as a result of the economic downturn.
