San Jose, CA (March 14, 2018) — Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is relocating its Silicon Valley office to Santana Row, San Jose’s iconic shop, live, work, play campus. NKF will locate 65 staff from its Santa Clara office to 18,451 square feet of space at 3055 Olin Avenue above Park Valencia by summer 2018.
“It’s great to plant our flag at Santana Row. The location makes us even more accessible to regional, national and global clients with real estate needs in Silicon Valley and beyond,” said NKF President, Northwest Region Charles E. Seufferlein. With 12 offices located throughout Northern California and local roots dating back eight decades, NKF’s Northwest Region works with more than 120 offices across the U.S. and over 400 global offices on six continents.
NKF is also the leasing broker for 700 Santana Row, a 291,000 square-foot office building under construction with a sweeping, signature plaza-encircling design that anchors the end of Santana Row. The state-of-the-art eight-story structure, featuring 30,000 and 50,000 square-foot floorplates and modern architecture, offers headquarters-quality office space whose concrete construction gives it distinctive design qualities compared to traditional Silicon Valley offices.
“We are thrilled to welcome NKF to the Santana Row community, where they join nine other companies already located here. It’s another milestone in Santana Row’s expansion to provide more office space for growth companies and headquarters operations,” said Federal Realty Western Region Chief Operating Officer Jan Sweetnam.
Santana Row’s world-class amenities include 50 shops, 30 restaurants, a 215-room boutique hotel offering extensive full-service conference facilities, two parks and multiple plazas with outdoor seating and free wifi, 615 rental homes and 219 privately-owned condominiums.
