(SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today it has acquired Oakmead West, a seven-building, multi-tenant campus in the heart of Silicon Valley.

The seven Class A office/R&D buildings totaling 431,095 square feet are situated on 21.62 acres in Sunnyvale, California. Completed in 1998, the Oakmead West campus consists of 920, 935, 940, 945, and 960 Stewart Drive, 490 and 510 DeGuigne Drive.

Oakmead West will undergo capital improvements including tenant interiors, landscaping, signage & wayfinding, and exterior collaboration areas. This investment will further activate the campus to create a sense of community for the tenants.
