Weekly papers move to central office

The Mountain View Voice and the west Menlo Park-based Almanac are closing their offices later this month and moving to a new, $5 million, 10,000-square-foot office building at 450 Cambridge Ave. in Palo Alto's Califoria Avenue District (see photo).

The Palo Alto Weekly will also move to the new building and close its offices in downtown Palo Alto. A story in the Voice noted:
    Owned and built by the Voice's parent company, Embarcadero Media, the new building boasts energy-efficient and other environmental features that will make it among the "greenest" buildings in the area. It will also meet the requirements for a national LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) "Gold" designation.
A March 2008 story said the Palo Alto Weekly has rented an 8,600-square-foot building at Forest Avenue and High Street since 1981. (Rendering courtesy of the Hagman Group via Palo Alto Online.)

CORRECTION:The Almanac newsroom will continue to occupy its office at 3525 Alameda de las Pulgas in Menlo Park, and there are no immediate plans for the newsroom to move to Palo Alto, the Almanac's Andrea Gemmet tells us. The Almanac's advertising and production departments have already moved in with the Palo Alto Weekly, she says. The Almanac newsroom's new phone number is (650) 854-2690.
