"Tesla leases two big Fremont office buildings where 1,000 could work" (TSLA)

From the Mercury News:

FREMONT — In a big expansion that could bring several hundred workers into Fremont, Tesla has leased two large office buildings in an area perched near the access roads for the Dumbarton Bridge.
The maker of electric vehicles has leased offices at 6800 Dumbarton Circle and 6900 Dumbarton Circle in Fremont, according to public documents filed with the Alameda County Recorder’s Office. The buildings are owned by development firm Peery Arrillaga.

The county records show that Tesla is the tenant in two buildings that together total roughly 230,000 square feet.

The building at 6800 Dumbarton Circle totals about 116,000 square feet, according to brochures posted on one of the Peery Arrillaga property websites. The 6900 Dumbarton Circle office building totals 114,000 square feet, the Peery Arrillaga website shows. The county documents also were posted on the entry doors of each of the buildings.

Palo Alto-based Tesla builds electric vehicles at a large auto factory in Fremont, and the buildings the company has leased are located between Tesla’s Peninsula headquarters and the company’s East Bay vehicle factory.

Based on typical zoning and planning regulations, potentially 1,000 or more people could work in the two buildings combined. The 116,000-square-foot building could accommodate 580 workers and the 113,000-square-foot building could house 570 employees...MUCH MORE
