Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) will end its 47-year partnership with Sunnyvale, CA and move its HQ and California Research & Development Center to Santa Clara. The global semiconductor leader leased an entire new 220,000-square-foot building at Irvine Company’s Santa Clara Square.
AMD expects to begin relocating employees to Santa Clara Square in phases, starting in August of next year. The company joins Cambridge Industries Group and Ericsson as the workplace community’s inaugural corporate occupiers.
AMD’s Denise Gourlay says, “We considered several options in the area, but Santa Clara Square offers unrivaled amenities, a dynamic environment and proximity for our employees and customers.”
Three office buildings are complete at the 1.7-million-square-foot development, while five 220,000-square-foot buildings are under construction and slated for completion this year and next.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Mike Connor represented AMD, while CBRE’s Mark Schmidt represented the Irvine Company.
