Harvest, Invesco Break Ground on Sunnyvale Development

Connect Bay Area is coming up July 18, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco. Get more information, and register to attend on this link.

A joint venture between Harvest Properties and Invesco commenced construction on a 540,000-square-foot Class A office development in Sunnyvale, CA. The three-building project will be delivered in phases, including an initial roughly 190,000-square-foot building at 684 W. Maude Ave. set to deliver Q3 2020.

Harvest Properties’ Blair Volckmann and Preston O’Connell said, “There are numerous reasons we feel this campus will provide an incredible headquarters or Silicon Valley beachhead for today’s leading corporations and growth technology companies, where the ability to attract and retain Silicon Valley’s top talent is of primary importance.”

The developer refined the plan to include best-in-class new construction, thoughtfully programmed indoor/outdoor amenity space, prominent identity, and flexible scalability. They hope that, in combination with nearby transportation options and a central Silicon Valley location, will draw tenants.

A team from NKF, consisting of Jeff Arrillaga, Joe Kelly and Mike Saign, as well as a team from JLL, comprised of Mark Bodie, Steve Clark and Toss Vallentine, will handle leasing.
