Google creates mega campus in north San Jose of 1 million square feet with new purchase

SAN JOSE — Google has quietly assembled what would be one of the largest office campuses in the Bay Area with a fresh purchase of several office buildings in north San Jose near the Alviso community.
With its latest acquisition in the northernmost section of San Jose, Google now controls nine big buildings and has cobbled together a vast campus where several thousand of the search giant’s employees could work.
All told, over a period of just under one and a half years, Google has paid $409.3 million to buy nine buildings in north San Jose and now owns in the area a mix of office and industrial buildings that together total 1.36 million square feet.
The purchases have occurred in an area north of the interchange of State Route 237 and North First Street, and the buildings front on North First, Nortech Parkway, and Disk Drive.
The nine properties consist of six office buildings and three giant industrial buildings. The buildings are so new that at least seven have never been occupied.
In the most recent deal, Google paid $137.5 million to acquire four office buildings that together total 415,000 square feet and have addresses of 4500 N. First St, 4550 N. First St., 65 Nortech Parkway and 95 Nortech Parkway, according to official records filed May 15 with Santa Clara County.
