PLEASANTON, CA—Software leader Workday is planning  a major new expansion of its operations in a big office complex next to its existing headquarters here.

Potentially up to 3,000 Workday employees could work at the complex that was purchased for an estimated $104 million late last year, according to a report in the Contra Costa Times

Alamo-based NPC Holdings, an investment company controlled by Workday co-founder David Duffield, bought the five-building office complex, known as Stoneridge Corporate Plaza. The office campus is next door to the existing Workday headquarters.

“Workday will occupy some of the space as an expansion of its corporate headquarters,”

spokesman Eric Glass told the paper.  

NPC Holdings will own and manage the five-building complex, which has multiple tenants.

Alameda County property records show the Duffield-led investment firm paid cash for the property. The seller was Metropolitan Life Insurance. The deal was arranged through Colliers International and Griggs Resources.
