Tishman Speyer acquires Silicon Valley office campus for $365M

by

Tishman Speyer announced the acquisition of a
four-building Class A office campus in Sunnyvale, CA, for $365 million.

The site, located on Crossman Drive in the desirable
Moffett Park submarket, also includes two parking structures plus outdoor
recreational space. It currently serves as the headquarters location for
NetApp, which plans to relocate later this year following a short lease back.

The transaction adds to Tishman Speyer’s growing
footprint in the Silicon Valley area and in the Bay Area overall. The firm’s
existing portfolio of signature properties in the region includes Bayside
Towers in Foster City, 400 Castro Street in Mountain View, and several major
properties in San Francisco. The latter group includes, among others, 222
Second, which is leased to LinkedIn, and the transformational Mission Rock
project underway in collaboration with the San Francisco Giants.

Plans call for the Sunnyvale property, which
totals 700,000 square feet of office space in excellent condition, to be
re-leased to one or more tenants after capital improvements. Most of the
property’s broad array of amenities – including a gym with basketball court,
lockers, showers, outdoor volleyball court, executive briefing center, a
full-service cafeteria, multiple kitchens, break centers, phone rooms and other
common areas – will be retained. In addition, Tishman Speyer plans to introduce
its popular ZO suite of lifestyle, convenience and amenity service offerings to
tenants at the campus.   

Tishman Speyer President &
CEO Rob Speyer commented, “Silicon Valley is at the epicenter of the
innovation economy and demand for high-quality office space, specifically
around Moffett Park, is very strong. The right real estate can support and
even galvanize innovation, as expert design, accessible green space, and
top-level amenities help create dynamic and thriving workplaces. Our goal is
for the Sunnyvale campus to do just this.”

He
continued, “Tishman Speyer is focused on markets where
the best tech entrepreneurs are collaborating
with leading academic institutions. Going forward, we plan to
continue actively investing in the Bay Area along with markets in Boston,
San Diego, Austin and more.”  

Phil Mahoney, Jon Mackey, and Mike Saign at
Newmark will handle leasing at the complex on behalf of Tishman Speyer.  

Joe Brady, Mike Drew, Peter
Hamann and John Brady at Savills represented NetApp in the sale transaction.
