San Jose, CA — Newmark announces that BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), one of the largest medical technology companies in the world, has signed a 240,000-square-foot long-term lease at Park Point, a creative office/R&D campus located at 115, 135 and  155 North McCarthy Boulevard in Milpitas, California.

Newmark Vice Chairmen Jeff Arrillaga and Michael Saign and Executive Managing Director Shawn Kellenberger represented building owners Embarcadero Capital Partners and PCCP, LLC in the transaction. JLL’s Managing Director Jodie Matthews, Senior Managing Director Steve Clark, Managing Director Grant Dettmer and Associate Joe Long represented the tenant. BD Biosciences will occupy the entirety of the 155 North McCarthy building and almost half of the 135 North McCarthy building.

“Embarcadero Capital Partners and our joint venture partner PCCP are excited to welcome BD Biosciences to Park Point in Milpitas. BD’s commitment to Park Point is testimony to the project’s large, efficient floor plates that are ideal for enabling innovation-based companies, wide array of outdoor collaborative and amenity spaces and convenient location near the intersection of Highway 237 and Interstate 880 in Silicon Valley,” said John Hamilton, Principal at Embarcadero Capital Partners.

Located in the heart of Silicon Valley, Park Point is a three-building corporate campus comprising one, two-story and two, three-story steel-framed office/R&D buildings totaling approximately 472,000 square feet. HOK, a global design, architecture, engineering and planning firm, was the lead on the project’s recent revitalization as a contemporary, amenity-rich workplace.

“HOK designed the extraordinary re-invention of Park Point featuring both indoor and outdoor amenities including a fitness center, outdoor kitchen and BBQ, pickleball court, volleyball court, basketball court, redwood grove with social fire pit terraces, picnic areas, custom ping-pong tables and outdoor collaboration areas with meeting tables and both lounge and café seating,” noted Carol Donnelly, Director of Leasing at Embarcadero Capital Partners.

With Corsair’s lease of the 115 North McCarthy building, BD’s lease leaves less than 107,000 square feet available for lease at the campus. The remaining space at 135 North McCarthy Boulevard can accommodate a variety of office, lab, manufacturing and warehouse functions. It is located in the middle of the campus with convenient access to the project’s many onsite amenities.

“PCCP is excited to welcome BD to our newly repositioned office project. Having Embarcadero Capital Partners’ broad range of expertise has been invaluable, and with the completion of our second major lease, it is rewarding to see Park Point’s value propositions further validated in the marketplace by another globally recognized corporation like BD,” said Melanie Gangel, Senior Vice President, PCCP, LLC.

Puneet Sarin, Worldwide President for BD Biosciences, said, “Our new campus at Park Point positions BD for exciting growth and helps elevate our Biosciences business, research and development and operations capabilities now and in the future. The state-of-the-art campus accommodates our innovation-driven needs for collaboration, lab space and a flexible working environment, and is a testament to our continued commitment to the region and its vibrant and diverse talent.”

Conveniently situated adjacent to VTA light rail and the new Milpitas BART Station, Park Point’s location is optimal for companies looking to recruit and retain top Bay Area talent from the East Bay, Peninsula, and South Bay labor markets. The project is within easy walking distance of more than 50 restaurants, retail, service and hotel amenities.

“We are ecstatic that BD has selected Park Point for its new Silicon Valley campus,” commented Saign. “The multi-functional work environment that the recent modernization of the campus offers aligns perfectly with the needs of today’s top corporate occupiers.”

“Embarcadero Capital Partners and PCCP recognized the valuable opportunity that Park Point presented in the marketplace and have effectively executed on a vision to bring the campus into a premiere state,” added Kellenberger. “The team effort has already proven successful in attracting innovative tenants like BD and Corsair.”
