Bixby Land Co. has completed a full redesign of the Trimble Technology Park in San Jose, CA, converting the property into a 250,000 square-foot, four-building office project called The Campus.
Irvine, CA-base Bixby acquired the property in San Jose's Golden Triangle submarket from Rockpoint Group LLC in a venture with Cornerstone Real Estate Advisors on behalf of one of its institutional clients in 2011.
Bill Halford, president and CEO of Bixby Land Co., said the project "has exceeded everyone’s expectations with a vision that turns a deaf ear to conventional office development."
Studio G Architects of Campbell, Calif. is credited with designing the project, which was led by architect Kelly Simcox. One of the project’s distinguishing features is the free-flowing circulation between building interiors and a number of outdoor areas for informal meetings, collaboration, team building, dining and recreation.
"We’re seeing more and more tenant requirements that want top-flight amenities in order to attract and retain the best talent in the Valley," said Rob Shannon, senior vice president at CBRE. Shannon and fellow CBRE brokers Christian Marent and Vincent Scott represent The Campus.
The flexible building configuration at the development is designed for one or two tenants, each with its own designated outdoor amenities area. The project can accommodate companies requiring approximately 90,000 square feet, 135,000 square feet, or 235,000 square feet. A fourth building with approximately 15,000 square feet is currently leased.
The Campus is located at the northwest corner of Trimble Road and Orchard Parkway, adjacent to San Jose’s North 1st Street Corridor, within one block of VTA light rail access and less than one mile from Highway 101.
The Campus represents the third major office park repositioning by Bixby in the Silicon Valley in the past two years.
