SAN FRANCISCO: Salesforce.com will be dramatically expanding its presence in San Francisco after today unveiling plans for Salesforce Tower, and an expected one thousand new employment positions.
The tower is currently under construction by Boston Properties and Hines on the site adjacent to salesforce.com offices at 50 Fremont St. and 350 Mission St.
A model of the new tower complex was unveiled earlier today by Mayor Lee and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
The company will lease more than half of the 1.4 million square foot building, adding more than 700,000 square feet to its urban campus. As part of their expansion they also expect to hire more than 1,000 people in the Bay Area this year, expanding its footprint as the city's largest tech employer.
Salesforce celebrated its 15th anniversary last month and Mayor Lee described the good news announced today as a "historic investment" in the city.
"I want to thank Marc Benioff and salesforce.com for their commitment to start here, stay here and grow here in San Francisco and I can't wait to see Salesforce Tower added to our world famous skyline," the Mayor said.
Benioff, Chairman and CEO of salesforce.com, said today's news represented an incredible milestone in the company's history.
"It will be the heart of our global headquarters in San Francisco. We founded salesforce.com in San Francisco 15 years ago and this expansion of our urban campus represents our commitment to growing in the city."
Salesforce.com will be the anchor tenant in the new tower, leasing more than half of the 61 story building located at 415 Mission St.
