    Reading Time: 2 minutes

    ±540,000 New State of the Art Sunnyvale Class “A” Office Campus to
    Break Ground Immediately

    OAKLAND, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A joint venture between Harvest Properties, a full service commercial
    real estate investment, development and management firm (“Harvest”), and
    its longtime partner Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate
    investment manager (“Invesco”), has acquired a three-building class “A”
    office development site in the heart of Sunnyvale, one of Silicon
    Valley’s most active submarkets. This acquisition marks the eighth joint
    venture that Harvest and Invesco have completed together.

    The fully entitled, shovel-ready development is located in Sunnyvale’s
    desirable Peery Park, just minutes from Downtown Sunnyvale, less than
    one mile to Caltrain and with convenient freeway access to both Highways
    101 and 237. The project totals approximately 540,000 square feet across
    three buildings and can be delivered in phases, allowing a tenant the
    unique opportunity to synchronize their growth plans with the
    commencement of occupancy. The partnership intends to break ground
    immediately and it anticipates it will deliver the first building,
    located at 684 W. Maude Avenue and containing approximately 190,000
    square feet, in the third quarter of 2020.

    This development represents an incredible headquarter campus
    opportunity that will exceed the demands of today’s corporate users,”
    said Preston O’Connell, partner at Harvest Properties. Blair Volckmann,
    partner at Harvest Properties, added, “We will deliver a project that is
    best-in-class new construction with prominent identity, flexible
    scalability, and proximity to both an array of amenities and major
    public and private transportation hubs.”

    The project sits at the epicenter of Silicon Valley’s business
    community and will allow a future tenant access to the world’s best
    technology and innovation labor force. This is the very reason that its
    corporate neighbors include LinkedIn, Apple, Walmart.com, Microsoft,
    Nokia, Riverbed, Alibaba.com, Proofpoint, Synopsys, Twitter, and 23&Me,”
    said Invesco’s Director of Acquisitions, Rohullah Sharifi.
