AMD to open new Silicon Valley headquarters
AMD has selected a state-of-the-art 220,000 square-foot building as the site of its new corporate headquarters and California research and development site.
The six-story building, which is expected to be completed soon, will provide a modern, upgraded Silicon Valley office amenities for up to 1,000 local employees, capable of meeting current needs and accommodating future growth.
‘Building on our 47-year legacy of technology innovation and leadership in Silicon Valley, our move to the Santa Clara Square complex will give us a modern and inspiring workspace to continue our leading-edge product development efforts,’ said Ruth Cotter, chief human relations officer and senior vice president of corporate communications at AMD. ‘The prominent location and compelling work environment will help to foster new ideas in a collaborative environment while helping us to attract top talent in the region.’
AMD has entered into a long-term lease agreement for the new Santa Clara Square building, developed and operated by The Irvine Company. Located less than two miles south of AMD’s current location, the new headquarters will keep AMD close to key customers, partners, and public transportation options.
Employee and equipment moves are expected to begin in Q3 2017 and be completed by the end of 2017.
