SAN JOSE, CA-Cisco Systems got a valuable recommendation in its bid to build its billion dollar campus on the southeastern edge of the city. The city planning staff here recommended approval of Cisco’s $81 million North Coyote Valley complex.

San Jose’s largest employer now must receive approvals from the planning commission and the city council. Opponents of the development say it would worsen traffic, threaten ecological balances, and send rents soaring as Cisco employees relocate to be closer to work.

Cisco has refuted the claims and thus far sped through the city approval process. The company is hoping to use the campus to unite some of its workers that are currently scattered throughout Silicon Valley.

Cisco is also said to be eyeing land in Dublin for a major office campus, to complement a 2-million sf campus on the old Agnews State Hospital property in North San Jose. In the meantime, it’s lease, lease, lease.

The latest deal is for 153,000 sf of office still under construction at Lincoln Properties’ Lincoln Centre complex in the Hacienda Business Park in Pleasanton. The company will move into the offices in stages starting in January.
