Technology firm Macromedia’s newest location sits on what some consider the bleeding edge of Silicon Valley — an attempt by the company to spread its wings and ease commutes for employees who must currently travel further into the valley.

The San Francisco-based software developer has struck a seven-year deal for a lease worth approximately $750,000 on a 35,000-sf space in the Koll Dublin Corporate Center in Dublin, Calif. The center sits at 4230 Dublin Boulevard and is close to I-680, a major traffic artery.

Macromedia’s new space will eventually house 140 software developers, 50 of whom are expected to begin working there by the end of the year.
