SAN JOSE, Calif. — CBRE Capital Markets has arranged the sale of 955-965 E. Arques, two R&D buildings totaling 89,273 square feet in Sunnyvale, Calif. Scott Prosser, Joe Moriarty, Russell Ingrum and Jack DePuy of CBRE represented Graymark Capital and Ascent Real Estate Advisors in their sale of the property to Applied Materials.

“Applied Materials, a top-tier owner-user in the market, was seeking to expand their Silicon Valley campus and was drawn to these institutional-quality, strategically located buildings,” said Scott Prosser, executive vice president, CBRE.  

The 36,282-square-foot and 52,991-square-foot buildings provide functional layouts that can be adaptable in providing a mix of R&D and lab space. 965 E. Arques was recently renovated in 2017-2019 and boasts market-ready improvements, including a new lobby, open office with exposed ceilings, an exclusive outdoor collaboration area, renovated restrooms, an open break room and Title 24 lighting. In addition, 965 E. Arques has three loading docks with a dock-high door, an appealing feature to a wide mix of tenants. 

Sunnyvale represents one of the Bay Area’s prime locations. Major technology companies have a significant presence in the city/submarket. In addition, the city offers excellent access throughout Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area, with access to major interstates and freeways as well as two Caltrain stations, both within two miles of the property.
