SANTA CLARA, Calif. (July 11, 2016) — Irvine Company Office Properties announced today that Cambridge Industries Group (CIG), one of the world’s leading telecom wired and wireless networking equipment companies, is relocating its U.S. headquarters to Santa Clara Square in the heart of Silicon Valley.
CIG has signed a 75,000-square-foot lease and plans to move in the summer of 2017.
Based in multiple locations around the world, CIG specializes in designing and manufacturing carrier and enterprise-class wired and wireless equipment. Its new U.S. headquarters will include a state-of-the-art research and development center and customer support center.
“CIG is a company with an emphasis on intensive R&D, quality and agile manufacturing, and professional customer service. We have many partners in Silicon Valley, so it makes sense for us to locate here to enhance collaboration,” said Gerald Wong, Chairman and CEO of Cambridge Industries Group (CIG).
Designed by renowned architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the 1.7-million-square-foot workplace community features sleek, modern architecture, floor-to-ceiling glass for superior natural light, and efficient floor plans for maximum flexibility.
Currently, three office buildings at Santa Clara Square are completed, and two are leased; five additional 220,000-square-foot buildings are under construction and will be completed between the end of this year and the middle of 2017. CIG will move into one of the new buildings.
At build out, the campus will also feature two Irvine Company signature amenities: The Commons, an open-air gathering place featuring casual workspaces, the Commons Café, an outdoor living room and complimentary WiFi and KINETIC, which blends state-of-the-art fitness centers and wellness services.
Santa Clara Square, an award-winning, 100-acre mixed-use community, also will feature an 1,800-home luxury apartment community and 165,000 square feet of shopping and dining, anchored by Whole Foods, which opens this summer, and two upscale restaurants unique to the Silicon Valley—Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar and Il Fornaio.
“Signing an international information technology company like Cambridge to Santa Clara Square is validation that it is quickly emerging as Silicon Valley’s most vibrant new workplace community,” said Todd Hedrick, regional vice president, Irvine Company Office Properties.
CBRE’s Matt Taylor, First Vice President, Tom Taylor, Executive Vice President and Robbie Taylor, Associate, represented CIG. Mark Schmidt, Managing Director, and Daniel Schmidt, Associate, of CBRE’s San Jose office represented the Irvine Company.
