SANTA CLARA, Calif. — (January 9, 2018) — Irvine Company Office Properties announced today that Hitachi Vantara, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd., and recognized leader in internet of things (IoT), cloud and data-driven solutions, has leased a 222,500-square-foot building at Santa Clara Square.
The company will relocate its headquarters from 2845 Lafayette Street, a 30-year-old office building in Santa Clara. The new headquarters building, which was completed this summer, will be located at 2535 Augustine Drive. Hitachi’s name will adorn the top of the building, and offer outstanding visibility to Highway 101 commuters.
In September, Hitachi Data Systems, Hitachi Insight Group and Pentaho were consolidated into Hitachi Vantara, a single integrated business entity that capitalizes on Hitachi’s Social Innovation capability to deliver data-driven solutions for commercial and industrial enterprises.
“Our new headquarters will help us build our brand, enhance our recruitment efforts and inspire our employees to innovate and win,” said Brian Householder, president and chief operating officer, Hitachi Vantara. “Santa Clara Square offers incredible indoor and outdoor workspaces, and our employees are especially excited about the on-site amenities including shopping, dining and outdoor meeting possibilities.”
Designed by the world-renowned architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, Santa Clara Square features sleek, modern architecture with floor-to-ceiling glass for superior natural light and efficient floor plans for maximum flexibility.
“We are thrilled to add another world-class company like Hitachi Vantara to our workplace community, and we are honored they chose us as the place where they want to grow and enhance their brand and culture,” said Todd Hedrick, regional vice president, Irvine Company Office Properties. “It’s exciting to see how leading Silicon Valley companies are embracing our vision to bring best-in-class office, retail and rentalliving together, to simplify and enhance the lives of their employees.”
Hitachi Vantara joins well-known Silicon Valley innovators AMD, Ericsson, Cambridge Industries Group and Veritas Technologies at the Santa Clara Square location.

Employees can meet outdoors or attend events at The Commons, an open-air gathering place featuring casual workspaces, which functions as an outdoor living room with complimentary Wi-Fi. They can grab a quick bite or espresso at one of two cafes. They can work out and visit with a nutrition counselor at KINETIC, which blends state-of-the-art fitness centers and wellness services and more.
