Apple buys huge San Jose development site/ Apple繼續向San Jose航行 (n1 Campus)

Apple 上個月才租下101 Campus, 今日又傳出買下 North San Jose  “n1 Campus"

Apple 近幾年不斷擴張,員工人數眾多,不斷傳出往南置產、往San Francisco 與 San Jose租下商業不動產的新聞。

影響所及,就是周邊的租屋市場與換屋人潮,將帶來一波新的氣象。

蘋果公司買下聖荷西的北部沿第一街的大片土地,足以興建辦公室和研究園區,供1萬5000名員工使用。

這項交易上周完成,總部設在庫比蒂諾的蘋果公司7月31日付出1億3820萬現金,買下在北一街和Component Drive附近40畝土地。賣方是康乃狄克州Five Mile Capital Partners旗下機構,該公司在2010年以4000萬元買下這片土地。

金寶市(Campbell)創意策略(Creative Strategies)市場研究公司主分析師巴佳瑞(Tim Bajarin)說:「蘋果絕對可以有這樣大規模的成長,買下這塊土地代表對蘋果未來的成長有十足的信心。」

這塊地已經獲准可興建總共280萬平方呎的辦公室,規模和現在正在庫比蒂諾興建的「太空船」建築相去不遠。蘋果打算把1萬3000名員工遷進太空船建築,那裡將是蘋果的世界總部。

蘋果最近向Ellis Partners租下29萬平方呎的辦公大樓,新買下的土地就在大樓旁邊,如果合在一起,這塊地和建築就是主要的聖荷西園區所在地。

高力國際(Colliers International)房地產公司的資深副總裁貝爾(Terry Bell)說:「蘋果的成長已是意料中事,它擴張的範圍簡直沒有限制。」

不過蘋果並非矽谷唯一鯨吞大塊土地和建築的科技公司,Google早就在山景城、桑尼維爾、巴洛阿圖和紅木城擴張,LinkedIn 的成長計畫則以山景城和桑尼維爾為主,臉書在蒙洛公園市繼續發展,三星則在聖荷西北部興建大型的地區總部。

When Apple Inc. leased a 290,000-square-foot building in north San Jose last month, the big question was: What’s next?
Now we know — and Apple didn’t disappoint.
The Cupertino-based Mac maker has purchased a roughly 43-acre development site in North San Jose in a blockbuster real estate transaction that raises tantalizing questions about the company’s plans there.
The deal for developer Lowe Enterprises’ so-called “n1 Campus" closed last week, according to public records. Apple paid just more than $138 million for the property at 2347 North First St., according to a deed that I examined in person today at the Santa Clara County Clerk-Recorder’s Office. That’s a big markup over the $39 million that Lowe and its joint-venture partner, Five Mile Capital Partners, paid back in 2010. (Click here for more.)

The deal comes on the heels of Apple’s lease of roughly 300,000 square feet from Ellis Partners in an already constructed building practically next door, marking Apple’s biggest push into San Jose. But that apparently was table stakes to the deal completed last week. Apple tends to grow wherever it leases or buys real estate, and the latest transaction shows that dynamic clearly playing out.
The possibilities with the latest transaction are wide open: The undeveloped land is approved for up to 2.8 million square feet of office space — about the same size as Apple’s under-construction Spaceship campus in Cupertino. But Lowe had been marketing plans from global architecture firm Gensler to build 1.8 million square feet in a sleek urban-style campus setting. If Apple built out that much office space, it could hold more than 14,000 workers. But it might be premature to assume what Apple has in mind: Apple could have its own program at the site. As of Monday, no new building plans had been turned in for the project.
The implications for San Jose — and north San Jose in particular — are huge. The city has for years been working to attract marquee tech tenants to the North First Street jobs corridor, which is already home to big names like Samsung, Brocade, Cisco Systems Inc. and others. Apple’s arrival — no matter what it ends up doing on the n1 site — is a major milestone that could attract more investment there.
“It’s really going to raise the profile of San Jose," said John Boyd of site-selection firm The Boyd Co.

The latest Apple deal comes as the company executes on a breathtaking real estate program that has Apple expanding by leaps and bounds in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, an appetite I wrote about back in May.
Still, it appears Apple will not be executing on another high-profile deal in San Jose — Coleman Highline. Apple was negotiating on a deal for the massive development site near the Mineta San Jose International Airport, which could include up to 1.5 million square feet of office, R&D, or light industrial space, as I previously reported. But brokers last week announced that the project was “back on the market," according to an email blast sent to real estate industry professionals. It’s unclear how far along the deal was, or whether it could be revived.
What’s interesting in the latest transaction is that Apple opted to buy, not lease. It’s possible Apple wants more control over whatever it does there, and simply felt more comfortable owning the land. In addition to office space, Apple has been in the market for broad swaths of heavy R&D and industrial space, industry observers tell me. The latter could be read as a tantalizing sign of Apple’s interest in manufacturing, though such a possibility is for now market speculation. (For more on this, click here.)
With the acquisition, Apple has grabbed one of the largest remaining undeveloped infill sites in Silicon Valley. The question now is what else might be in Apple’s sights. There are several other development projects in north San Jose — including Steelwave’s Tech Place on 101, next door to the Ellis Partners site, and the Brokaw Road development from Peery-Arrillaga ( widely known as the “mystery tenant" project.)
