SAN FRANCISCO/MOUNTAIN VIEW  – TMG Partners, one of the San Francisco Bay Area’s largest mixed-use property developers, and the Real Estate business within Goldman Sachs Asset Management (Goldman Sachs) announced today the acquisition of a 445,967-square-foot Class A office campus at 350-380 Ellis Street in Mountain View, California. The seller, NortonLifeLock, is leasing back one of the property buildings. 

“TMG sees this acquisition of a fully amenitized campus as an ideal addition to our portfolio and greater Silicon Valley strategy for accommodating the evolving workforce in this submarket,” said Ben Kochalski, Regional Partner with TMG Partners. “With Newmark leading our leasing outreach, we believe the interconnectivity of the campus, the indoor/outdoor amenities, and the adherence to health and wellness at the workplace will entice best-of-breed companies to headquarter here.” 

The property, situated in the heart of Silicon Valley, was constructed with high-quality architectural design and innovative features. Buildings A, B, C and D are each four-story premier, Class A office buildings that are interconnected in a U-shape surrounding the main campus area. The connectivity between all four buildings on nearly every floor provides a unique and walkable corporate environment.  

Immediately adjacent, and accessible via both open and covered walkways, is the single-story amenity building (Building E). Campus amenities include open work environments, expansive meeting/conference rooms, kitchen/break areas on each floor, and collaborative space. Additionally, there is a full-service Union 82 Restaurant & Gastropub restaurant and all-hands meeting area in Building E, an on-site multi-story parking structure, a bocce ball court, tennis court, sand volleyball court and numerous outdoor patios.

The recently completed headquarter lobby renovation and Client Experience Center offers best-in-class, curated experience for clients, featuring hospitality suites, briefing/board rooms, technology demonstration rooms, pre-function space, integrated technology as well as a multi-functional outdoor patio.
