JLL announced today leasing approximately 5,400 square feet of space at 356 Santana Row at the heart of San Jose’s prestigious Santana Row mixed-use community, establishing a new office that expands from its Menlo Park office to further grow market-share dominance in the region. By taking high-visibility space in the South Bay, JLL aims to build on its existing, deep client base and position the firm to serve ongoing real estate needs of owners, occupiers and investors.

"With this new location, we will be even more accessible to clients with a number of producers and operational support based here,” said JLL Managing Director Kirsten Grado who’s heading up the office. “We are excited to plant our flag at Santana Row, a vibrant community that superbly complements our JLL culture. This move further supports our position as the leading commercial real estate firm serving Silicon Valley, from start-ups coming out of Sand Hill Road, to mid-size operations and global technology firms who may be expanding or right-sizing.”

“We are honored that JLL chose to open their new South Bay office at Santana Row,” said Jan Sweetnam, Chief Investment Officer of Federal Realty Investment Trust, Santana Row’s developer. “We look forward to delivering the fully amenitized workplace JLL’s employees and clients will soon enjoy.”

Added Grado, “The opening of our San Jose office is an investment in our people and our clients and we see significant opportunity to capitalize on the increased demand as the market recovers. This is a significant milestone for JLL as our 7th office in the Bay Area and the 10th for Northern California.”
