Prologis Modernizes Fremont Real Estate Portfolio to Appeal to Tech Businesses
Jun 07, 2017
Momentum is building in Fremont’s Innovation District. From the Warm Springs BART opening and new commercial development to record low vacancy rates, it’s clear that a growing number of tech customers are looking to Fremont as a business location. With its well-earned reputation for accommodating R&D and manufacturing, Fremont has long been a natural fit for our portfolio, which currently has several spaces available for lease. Recently, we decided to reinvest in the Bayside Business Park by urbanizing spaces and adding features designed to appeal to a 21st century workforce. The photos below reflect where we believe the Fremont tech market is headed — fresh, contemporary work environments that can accommodate the wide range of advanced industries that call Fremont home.
More enhancements to this unique park are on the way. We look forward to sharing those with you in the near future.
New entryways include expansive clear glass, contemporary metal
awnings, and drought-tolerant landscaping.
Open floor plans are anchored by a kitchen/break area
stocked with amenities, offering opportunities for employee interaction.
Gone are the dropped ceilings of yesterday. Exposed ceilings, wooden beams, pendant lights, and floor-to-ceiling two-story lobbies foster an urban workspace that is ideal for today’s maker generation.
We’ve even parted ways with traditional exterior paint colors in favor of more timeless, urban accents.
Outdoor collaboration areas suitable as both public space and outdoor company meeting space have never been more important. Here’s a rendering of our plan to convert underused spaces into common areas for working, socializing, and special events.
Welcome to our blog – Takes from Silicon Valley East! Our view is slightly different here on the east side of the bay – from the Mission Peak backdrop to the advanced manufacturing companies that dot our boulevards. As we become more urban and strive to interpret the business issues affecting our innovation economy, we want to share with you our observations, insights, photos, arguments, agreements, inspirations and CEO interviews – and here on our blog is exactly where we plan to do this.
