Salesforce.com, a provider of customer relationship management software, unveiled its Salesforce Tower, currently under construction above the new Transbay Transit Center, adjacent to its offices at Freemont and Mission Streets in San Francisco, California.
Currently under construction by Boston Properties and Hines, Salesforce.com will lease more than half of the 1.4 million square foot building, adding more than 700,000 square feet to its urban campus. The company said it expects to hire more than 1,000 people in the Bay Area this year, “expanding its footprint as San Francisco's largest tech employer.”
"Salesforce Tower represents an incredible milestone in our company's history—it will be the heart of our global headquarters in San Francisco," said Marc Benioff, Chairman/CEO, salesforce.com. "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."
"I am proud and excited to be a part of this historic moment as we welcome salesforce.com to the Transbay neighborhood and to their iconic future home in the Innovation Capital of the World," said Mayor Ed Lee. "Salesforce.com is a tremendous partner to our City and our residents, bringing thousands of new jobs to San Francisco and solidifying the Transbay District as a leading destination for innovative companies. 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."
"We are pleased that salesforce.com will be our anchor tenant at Salesforce Tower—a building that will have a transformative impact on the San Francisco skyline. We are committed to making Salesforce Tower the most important business address in San Francisco," said Mort Zuckerman, Executive Chairman, Boston Properties.
