Google has pre-leased all of the space at a 190,000 square foot office building in Mountain View located at 600 Clyde Avenue, according to multiple sources that track the leasing efforts of major tenants in Silicon Valley.
The owner of the building and developer is Renault & Handley. This firm declined to name the tenant , and Google did not respond to an email seeking comment for this story.
The project site is located across the street from a stop on the MVGO Shuttle line operated by the Mountain View TMA with service to Caltrain and the Downtown Mountain View Transit Center, according to a statement by Renault & Handley. The development includes a five-story, Class A, LEED Platinum office building with a four-story parking structure and a full acre of outdoor amenity space featuring a 9,600 square foot fifth-floor deck with sweeping views of the Sunnyvale Municipal Golf Course and Los Altos Hills.
The highly sustainable development will feature on-site photovoltaic power generation and innovative wastewater technologies to reduce potable water usage, including dual plumbing for future recycled water use and a rainwater harvesting system.
“We designed the shell to Type I B construction to give tenants maximum flexibility in interior design and the ability to push density”, according to David Conklin, a principal at Renault & Handley, from a statement. “The additional fireproofing, accommodations for a fourth stairwell, and other life-safety considerations enable the tenant to have assembly occupancies above the second floor and to use the fifth-floor deck for large-scale dining, gathering and recreation.”
“Attractive, usable outdoor space is vital to creating an environment for collaboration and creativity, so designing for it was a primary design consideration. Our building and site configuration are oriented to give the outdoor spaces maximum sun exposure and wind protection so that people can use them.” In addition to the large deck space, the interior of the site will feature a private landscaped plaza, and a publicly accessible Class I multi-use path on the perimeter of the site.
The office development was permit ready in April of 2018.
Google has been expanding throughout the region over the last decade exponentially, and just a few weeks ago the company took another 151,000 square feet at 620 National Ave. in Mountain View. The technology giant has been one of the main reasons its home town has seen such a drastic transformation over that time, as well, and Google’s work in the city is not complete!
In December the company submitted plans to the city for its initiative to to facilitate the construction of between 6,000 and 6,600 new residential units, 35-acres of publicly accessible open space and the requalification of 1.175 million square feet of previously allocated office space from Shoreline Commons to Shorebird. This project is planned to span over a decade.
