A 1.3 million-square-foot office campus development in Sunnyvale is aiming to change the way people work by offering a variety of health and wellness opportunities on an approximately 42-acre plot of land. Located at 800 N. Mary Avenue, Pathline Park is home to 11 office buildings that connect along a pedestrian promenade. 

While still under construction, the to-be-completed office campus will be home to nine three story buildings ranging from 95,000 square feet to 121,000 square feet, two four-story buildings that range from 140,000 square feet to 167,000 square feet, a two-story amenity hub and space along the pathline for tenants to connect outside.

“An ideal balance of innovative workspace to immersive amenities and indoor-to-outdoor areas actively promotes wellness. Forward-thinking, experiential design enables maximum flexibility for your company’s growth and unique culture. The central pedestrian pathline, indoor-outdoor amenity hub and open-air meeting spaces empower your workforce to connect and collaborate with confidence,” The Irvine Company, which developed the office campus, states on its website. 

With a focus on health, wellness and being outdoors, the campus is landscaped with more than 700 trees. Buildings also feature private patios and balconies to give tenants easy access to the outdoors. Other onsite amenities include a grab-and-go marketplace, a private fitness center, lounge, outdoor meeting areas, and four parking garages totaling 1.2 million square feet with space for 3,618 vehicles.  

The office campus is being developed by The Irvine Company, an Irvine-based development firm with workplace communities throughout California. Designs for Pathline Park also come from architecture firms OJB and Arquitectonica. According to Arquitectonica’s website, the buildings were designed to promote social interaction and the surrounding nature. 

“…the office uses define public spaces. Within those spaces a series of amenity buildings rise to create a focal point. They provide public amenities for the surrounding buildings, gathering places for social interaction, exchange of ideas, and entertainment. Their collage of elliptical glass ‘tree trunks’ from which a series of rectangles makes them more complex and playful than their office counterparts. Their bold orange color also contrasts with the neutrality of the metallic frames of the office buildings,” Arquitectonica states on its website. 

Located in the heart of the Sunnyvale tech community, Pathline Park is within close proximity to downtown Sunnyvale, Mountain View, San Jose and the San Jose International Airport. The site also provides easy connectivity to Highways 101, 237, 85 and the Central Expressway, with on-demand commuting and shuttle programs available to tenants. 

While not fully developed, Pathline Park is already fully leased. Apple recently signed a lease at the campus, taking up the remaining availability. The tech company leased 700,000 square feet across six of the buildings in the office campus. The lease would allow Apple to occupy space at 600, 650, 700, 725 and 750 N. Mary Avenue, and additional space at 625 Palomar Ave, which is still under construction. The six buildings could provide space for approximately 3,000 employees.

Other tenants at Pathline Park include Proofpoint Inc., a cybersecurity firm, and Synopsis Inc., which has signed a lease for 360,000 square feet at the developing campus.
