San Jose-Tesla leases a large office building in the north of San Jose. The transaction expands the list of tech celebrities who have brought light to the economy of that part of the largest city in the Bay Area.
According to public records in Santa Clara County and the news agency’s direct observation of Tesla’s property, the electric car manufacturer leased an office and research building with a total area of approximately 75,000 square feet.
Well-known technology companies such as Google, Apple, Samsung, Cisco, and PayPal have important offices or research institutions in northern San Jose, or plan to develop large new websites.
Palo Alto-based Tesla, whose largest Bay Area business is the company’s large electric car factory in Fremont, is joining the well-known list in northern San Jose.
“San Jose continues to add large companies to its roster is a good momentum,” said Bob Staedler, CEO of Silicon Valley Synergy, a land use consulting firm.
In addition, in downtown San Jose, Adobe and Google have worked hard to establish major new businesses in the city’s central business district.
The owner of the 2711 N. First St. office building recently filed an announcement stating that Tesla, the tenant of the property, has carried out construction activities on the site leased by the electric car manufacturer.
According to Google Maps, the North San Jose Building proved to be the location of the Tesla Energy Training Center.
The news agency’s direct observation of the property in recent days revealed that a Tesla name sign was installed at the entrance of this single-story office building.
However, apart from the Tesla name on the door, no more obvious green company logo was observed. The monument sign next to the building has no name. The former tenant of the venue is the private university International University of Science and Technology.
It is not clear how many Tesla workers may be working on site. The exact nature of the Tesla Energy Training Center was not disclosed.
Palo Alto-based Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Nevertheless, Tesla’s presence in North San Jose is considered a welcome sign in the area.
“The secret of Silicon Valley has always been its people,” Stedler said. “San Jose has an excellent workforce.”
