284,000 square-foot Class-A Office Building in Silicon Valley’s premier
urban neighborhood designed to attract burgeoning Silicon Valley firms
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 30, 2016--
Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE:FRT) announced the start of
construction today on 700 Santana Row, a 284,000 square-foot office
building set on a signature plaza with a sweeping design that anchors
the end of Santana Row, Silicon Valley’s iconic mixed-use neighborhood.
The state-of-the-art, eight-story structure at Santana Row at Olsen
Drive features 30,000 and 48,000 square-foot floorplates, modern
architecture and headquarters-quality office space with concrete
construction, which gives the building distinctive design qualities
compared to traditional Silicon Valley office buildings. 700 Santana Row
follows the highly successful 500 Santana Row, a six-story office
building on an adjacent site fully-leased to Splunk Inc. in 2015 with
occupancy slated to begin next month.

"700 Santana Row is a ‘capstone’ building that takes full advantage of
being the visual book-end to Santana Row, which has become one of the
most popular live-work-dine-shop environments in Silicon Valley and the
Bay Area. No other office building will have this unique, commanding
location,” said Jan Sweetnam, Federal Realty’s Western Region Chief
Operating Officer. “We’ve designed the building with a concrete
structure and loft-like feel more often found in San Francisco’s SOMA
district and other urban centers. 700 Santana Row will feature expansive
natural light with tall, market-leading 13-foot ceilings and open floor
plans, which in turn will provide companies with high-productivity,
collaborative workspaces for their employees.”
Ready for tenant build-out in the third quarter of 2018, 700 Santana Row
will also feature a three-per-thousand dedicated parking ratio and a
15,000 square-foot roof-top terrace and garden with majestic views of
Santana Row, the San Jose skyline and distant foothills. Shuttle service
will take Santana Row office tenants to nearby Diridon Station for
Caltrain and VTA light rail service.
“And unlike the congested 101 corridor,” Sweetnam added, “Santana Row is
located directly off of Interstate 280 in close proximity to residential
neighborhoods and office parks in San Jose, Palo Alto, Mountain View,
Sunnyvale, Cupertino, Santa Clara, and throughout Silicon Valley.”
“The on-site amenities and walkable environment that Santana Row offers
has become a recruiting and retention tool for Splunk, Experian, Si-Bone
and the other companies located here,” said Jeff Berkes, President-West
Coast for Federal Realty Investment Trust.
Newmark Cornish & Carey is the leasing agent for the project. 700
Santana Row has been designed by WRNS Studio of San Francisco, and
Devcon Construction is the general contractor.
Santana Row’s world-class amenities include 50 shops, 30 restaurants, a
215-room boutique hotel offering extensive full service conference
facilities, two parks and multiple plazas with outdoor seating and free
wifi, 615 rental homes and 219 privately owned condominiums.
