Posted on April 4, 2015 at 9:52 pm by Clay Curtin

Facebook submitted a preliminary application this week for the proposed redevelopment of the TE Connectivity campus located at 300-309 Constitution Drive. The site is located between Chilco Street and the recently completed Building 20, formerly referred to as Facebook’s West Campus. The proposal includes construction of two new office buildings totaling 985,719 square feet (a net increase of 149,881) plus publically accessible open space and a new pedestrian/bicycle bridge over Bayfront Expressway, providing a more direct connection from the Belle Haven neighborhood to the Bay Trail. The proposed buildings would have a similar look, feel and height as Building 20. The application also includes a potential for a 200-room limited service hotel of approximately 120,000 square feet at the corner of Chilco Street and Bayfront Expressway. The development would be phased over time as the existing tenants (Pentair and TE) vacate the property. With this preliminary application, the City will commence the environmental review and land use entitlement process.
