Real Estate Firm Now Marketing Solyndra’s Former Factory


Jones Lang LaSalle has been chosen by Solyndra LLC to sell the solar panel manufacturer's corporate headquarters and primary production facility located at 47488 Kato Road in Fremont, Calif. The transaction has been approved by the Bankruptcy Court overseeing Solyndra's bankruptcy case.

The approximately 450,000 square-foot manufacturing facility, completed in 2010, is suited to a variety of cleantech and technology businesses, Jones Lang LaSalle says. The 280,000 square-foot manufacturing space is rated as Class 100,000 Clean Room (ISO Clean 8), and the two-story office space, totaling approximately 30,000 square feet, was constructed to LEED Gold standards.

The property sits on a 30-acre parcel and includes plans for an additional 200,000-plus square-foot expansion facility. The facility was designed to exceed California seismic standards and can be operating immediately following a seismic event.

The building's 21 kV electrical service is backed up by two diesel emergency generators, each with 2 MW capacity, and the building carries a cool membrane roof with a 1.2 MW solar installation, the real estate firm adds. Interested parties are instructed to visit for more information.
