SAP will be moving from its current Dublin/Pleasanton location to establish its Tri-Valley regional office in San Ramon at Bishop Ranch.
The move to 2600 is scheduled to begin in early January 2017. SAP’s office will be outfitted to include an open, highly collaborative workspace. More than 450 SAP employees will be relocating to 2600.
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 recently received 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.
“We’re thrilled to welcome a prestigious company like SAP to the growing list of tenants here at Bishop Ranch,” said Alex Mehran Jr., president and COO of Sunset Development Company. “Our strategy has been to create a compelling offering of shared amenities at 2600 and throughout Bishop Ranch, which includes food, conference and fitness. This strategy allowed SAP to reduce their leased footprint while expanding their offering to employees.”
SAP empowers people and organizations to work together more efficiently and use business insight more effectively. SAP applications and services enable more than 293,500 customers to operate profitably, adapt continuously, and grow sustainably.
Financial terms of the lease were not disclosed. Ken Gilbert with CBRE San Francisco represented SAP.
