Recent news reports have revealed that office leasing was hot in Silicon Valley in 2011. Fremont Business Park — which offers highly professional, affordable space at the gateway to the Valley targeted to the needs of smaller businesses — was one of the hottest complexes during the past year. And judging from recent activity, that’s carrying over in a big way into 2012.
Fremont Business Parkrecently signed leases with three new tenants and seven current occupants that are either extending their leases or expanding to a larger suite within the complex.
Here’s a quick rundown of the companies involved in the recent activity:
