SKS Partners is planning to construct the Berkeley Space Center at NASA Research Park in Mountain View. Representing a joint venture with the University of California, Berkeley, the 36-acre innovation hub at Moffett Field will catalyze technological breakthroughs spanning astronautics, aeronautics, quantum computing, climate studies, and the social sciences. The multiphase development will provide 1.4 million sf of Class-A office and research facilities, including both wet and dry laboratories, as well as conference venues and academic environments. Further buildout of the site could include retail amenities, student and faculty housing, and a short-stay hotel.
Fostering collaboration between university investigators, government agencies, and private companies, the center will accelerate the creation of novel transportation and biomanufacturing solutions to enable interplanetary exploration. With an estimated construction cost of $2 billion, the LEED-certified project will serve as a testbed for the advancement of low-carbon design and construction practices. The mixed-use campus will offer 18 acres of open space, including outdoor work yards for a range of engineering activities, as well as a central green for gatherings and exhibitions.
HOK and Field Operations are providing master planning services with CBRE acting as leasing agent. Construction is slated to begin in 2026 with initial occupancy expected in 2027.
