The San Francisco Business Times reports that Lane Partners, the developers of Uber's new headquarters in Oakland, is partnering with Alan Dones to create an even bigger office project that's geared specifically to technology companies. According to the SFBT, the developers plan to develop more than two acres at 2100 Telegraph Avenue, making way for offices, housing, and retail. In other words, it's another big project—reportedly as large as the 400,000-square-foot building just sold to Uber. Size is not only similarity between the projects. They also have location in common, with the Telegraph Avenue site being located a block away from Uber HQ.
The article points out that tech offices are a Lane Partners' specialty, given that the Menlo Park-based company has created so many in Silicon Valley. The developers are quoted as saying that some office space will be equipped with large floor plates, a feature that's sought after by high-tech buyers.
It's worth noting that this is second big commercial real estate project we've reported on today. Earlier, we carried news about plans to turn Oakland's AT&T building into a tech hotspot.
