Adobe Systems, poised to dramatically broaden its headquarters complex in downtown San Jose, said Thursday it will buy a property near its main offices where it could employ 3,000 more workers.
Adobe’s expansion plan comes as San Jose is in talks with Google about its proposal to build a massive tech campus on the western edge of downtown. The two technology companies’ plans would give the city’s economy and job market a significant shot in the arm.
“It’s an exciting time for Adobe, and we continue to thrive and grow as a company,” Jonathan Francom, Adobe’s vice president of employee and workplace solutions, said Thursday. “The headquarters building we have in downtown San Jose continues to be a thriving part of our population. We are doubling down on San Jose with this.”
Adobe currently employs 2,500 workers in downtown San Jose who occupies three office towers. Adobe intends to buy parcels that would accommodate a fourth high rise where 3,000 would work, an expansion that would more than double the company’s present San Jose work force and bring the new total to 5,500.
