In December 2019, Amazon Web Services (AWS) paid $101.4 million for a two-story, 358,000-square-foot building at 2305 Mission College Blvd. in Santa Clara. The seller was PGIM Real Estate, the property investment arm of New Jersey-based Prudential Financial Inc.
In 2014, PGIM Real Estate acquired the property from a joint venture comprised of Chicago real estate investors Kinship Capital and Pearlmark Real Estate Partners for $95 million.
The property is located across the street from chipmaker Intel Corp.'s world headquarters and directly east of the San Tomas Aquino Creek.
The Mission College Boulevard property is slated to be a brand-new data center totaling 496,000 square feet after the existing building is torn down and replaced.
