Bloom Energy expanded to include a full building in north San Jose.

The green energy company signed a lease for 32,800 additional square feet in one of the two office buildings in the [email protected] office complex in the Alviso district, the MercuryNews reported. It brings Bloom’s office footprint to 182,700 square feet, the entire building at 4353 North 1st Street.

“When it comes to decisions about California, some employers may be going, but Bloom Energy is growing,” Bloom’s Carl Guardino told the Mercury. “We have expanded our headquarters in San Jose and increased our manufacturing footprint in Fremont.”

Bloom is a public company that produces and markets clean energy power generators such as the fuel cell power generator that uses natural gas or biogas as fuel.

The two-building [email protected] tech campus totals 368,700 square feet across 4353 and 4453 North 1st Street. It was bought by CBRE Investment Management in 2020. It has large outdoor gathering spaces, a feature that’s become more attractive for tenants since the pandemic.

In the same area, Procept Biorobotics, a Redwood City maker of surgical robotics, agreed to lease about 158,000 square feet across two buildings on Baytech Drive.

Demand for Bloom Energy’s technologies, which can limit the amount of deliberate power outages known as public safety shutoffs, has allowed the company to expand and hire more people.

“As the world’s need for reliable and sustainable energy grows, we’re growing careers in engineering, finance and supply chain in our San Jose headquarters and adding more than 300 manufacturing careers throughout Silicon Valley over the next 12 months,” Guardino said.
