Going, going, gone. by Terence Ainscow.

Several former Syntex buildings on the Palo Alto triangle, totaling 323,600 square feet of floor space, have been demolished!
P-1 (the first Production building) completed in September 1966, P-2 completed in September 1971, the Production Administration/QC expansion and the Labs Administration building both completed in February 1982, the Labs Administration building expansion completed in November 1987, and P-3 completed in November 1988, have all been torn down in order to make way for a new 460,000 square foot campus that EMC Corporation is planning for its subsidiary, VMWare.

Roche has given back 29 acres to Stanford in exchange for extending their leases on the remaining 76 acres, which were due to expire in 2019.

The construction permit issued to VMWare for new office buildings at 3401 Hillview Avenue listed a cost of $16,108,495.
