By Natalie Dolce

SAN FRANCISCO, CA-Trammell Crow Co. and joint venture partner Principal Real Estate Investors have purchased a 57-acre land site fromCisco Systems Inc. located near the existing Cisco campus in North San Jose, CA. According to a prepared statement, the venture is evaluating a number of opportunities on the land, including speculative industrial development, land parcel sales and build-to-suits.

Rob Shannon, SVP with CBRE in San Jose, CA represented the joint venture in the deal. The project marketing team will also include Chip Sutherland, SVP with CBRE in San Jose, CA.

Shannon tells that this is an opportunistic land purchase at a favorable basis in a high barrier to entry market. “We see it as a once in a decade opportunity to find a sizable land parcel in a desirable infill location. The flexible zoning will allow for the owner, a joint venture between Trammell Crow and Principal Real Estate Investors, to pursue a full range of uses including office, R&D and industrial,” he says. “We are working on a phasing plan which will address user demand in each sector.”

The site is highly visible from and accessible to Highway 237. With proximity both to the San Francisco Peninsula and to the 880 Corridor leading to the Port of Oakland, it is the only available industrial site of this magnitude in Silicon Valley and will be the first modern class A industrial facilities developed in San Jose in the past 15+ years, according to a statement.

According to a previous article, there is growing demand for large manufacturing and warehousing facilities as multinational technology firms expand aggressively and attract suppliers to the region.
