Comprised of four interconnected buildings on a park-like 100-acre campus, 2600 is at the heart of Bishop Ranch. With its 1.8 million square feet of office space, it is the Bay Area’s largest office building, and holds the coveted LEED® Gold certification. In addition to the buildings’ green credentials, the spaces throughout have been designed to foster the creativity and innovation that drive a successful business.
Financial terms of the lease were not disclosed. Steve Corbitt of The Axiant Group represented Rodan + Fields.
