Just weeks after Level 10 Construction announced the core and shell of the $180 million Moffett Gateway project in Sunnyvale, a two seven-story office tower project with a parking structure, a green roof and a fitness center, had been completed, it now appears Google is taking over the space, according to a report from the Silicon Valley Business Journal.[contextly_sidebar id=”npfWrS7xeDR2ZzjpWi7lqehlw4GrkIme”]The 15.5-acre Moffett Gateway project contains 612,000 square feet of Class A office space with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains and Silicon Valley. Adjacent to the two office towers is a parking garage with partial green roof. Called a “high garden,” the green roof contains a bar and barbeque area, multiple seating/dining areas, bocce courts, hardscape and native plants and trees. The parking structure rooftop also contains an enclosed 14,299-square-foot fitness center with locker/shower/stream rooms, a yoga studio, a TRX suspension training area, a weight and exercise room, a kitchenette, and administrative offices. Moffett Gateway also integrates a 49,000-square-foot landscaped central commons area.
“Moffett Gateway is a unique corporate campus that offers many amenities,” said Dennis Giles, president of Level 10 Construction in a statement. “We are pleased once again to have the opportunity to provide outstanding office space to Silicon Valley.”
Developed by the Jay Paul Company and designed by DES Architects + Engineers, Moffett Gateway is targeting LEED Platinum certification. It is one of several buildings that Google has leased in this neighborhood, and developer Jay Paul remains bullish on the city’s ability to attract large employers like Google.
In addition to this development, Jay Paul is also planning a 1.65 million square feet office development for the former Lockheed Martin site at 1111 Martin Way in Sunnyvale, also known as Moffett Towers II project. Jay Paul is proposing the demolition of of 924,500 square feet of existing buildings and construction of 5 eight-story office buildings, an amenities structure and a parking garage. Each of the new 5 buildings would be approximately 320,000 square feet, and the net new square footage on the property would come to approximately 725,000 square feet. The new buildings will be LEED Platinum certified.
Google’s ambitions for the Silicon Valley market seem insatiable, and it continues to play a major role in this and other neighboring cities, as well. Just last week the global tech giant agreed to swap a number of parcels in Mountain View and Sunnyvale for additional lots in Mountain View that LinkedIn owned.
Google was not reachable in time for this story, and neither was Jay Paul’s long time broker, Phil Mahoney, executive managing director at Newmark Cornish & Carey.
