Verizon to Co-Develop New Campus at Coleman Highline in San Jose
SAN JOSE, CALIF. — Verizon will co-develop and lease-to-purchase a new ground-up campus for its Verizon Media workforce at the Coleman Highline campus in San Jose. Co-developed by Hunter Properties, the new campus will support 3,400 employees, including 2,400 from Verizon Media’s current Sunnyvale, Calif., location. Verizon signed a long-term lease for approximately 640,000 square feet in multiple buildings, including a welcome pavilion and workplace amenities such as a fitness center and cafeteria.
Verizon’s new campus will be part of the larger Coleman Highline mixed-use development that includes a hotel and retail and residential space, as well as communal gathering and collaboration spaces. Groundbreaking for the Verizon asset is slated for this fall, with completion scheduled for 2021.
At build-out, Coleman Highline will feature more than 7,500 square feet of on-site retail options; a public market; a diverse collection of cuisine, caterers and food trucks; two dedicated retail pavilions anchored by a main plaza and promenade; an on-site hotel; more than 2,500 new housing units; and 11 acres of urban parkland. The transit-oriented project will also offer access to the Santa Clara Caltrain and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority stations.
Gensler, a global design and architecture firm, is designing the mixed-use project. Matt Hargrove and Mike Filice of CBRE oversaw the real estate agreement, and Jeff Houston, Mike Benevento and Mike Charters of CBRE San Jose represented the owner.
