Soon on Craig's List: Fully Furnished Corporate HQ's Ready for Move-In...

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Friday, 2 October 2009

Hopefully this is not a trend we will see more of... There are currently two fully furnished, ready for move-in, corporate headquarter's building being marketed in the East Bay. These spaces combine to over 450K sqft of plug-n-play space, ready for the next occupant (as long as they can use 1,500 existing workstations).

I'm speaking of the the former Mervyn's Headquarters building in Hayward Ca.(336K sqft), and the former Longs Drug Store General Office (GO) in downtown Walnut Creek Ca.(90K sqft), and Antioch Branch Office (ABO) in Antioch Ca. (60K sqft (approx)).

An article on states the Mervyn's facility is being sold by the court appointed receiver, and will be "sold via competitive bid" (click HERE for article). The Longs facilities are being handled by the Walnut Creek Office of Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL), on behalf of CVS which acquired Longs in 2008.

Having designed and installed the 350 workstations currently housed in the Longs facilites (installed in December 2007 and January 2008), I can personally attest to how "great" their office environment will be for the next occupants.
