Call of the North: Sobrato steps up peninsula projects

The Sobrato Organization is moving on up – the peninsula, that is. The Cupertino-based developer, one of San Jose and Santa Clara's largest commercial landlords, is making good on its plans to branch out with several large site purchases in Menlo Park, Palo Alto and East Palo Alto. ...

... George Fox, senior vice president and branch manager of Studley Inc.'s Silicon Valley office, said the site could very well end up being additional space for Facebook. ...

 ... Still, Fox is skeptical that large tech users will be attracted to University Plaza.

"I see more professional services firms going there," he said. "But Sobrato's pulled many rabbits out of his hat before, so I wouldn't doubt him. Sobrato gets stuff done. They do quality product. They're a Silicon Valley icon."
