As Google moves fast to buy swaths of property in and around downtown San Jose, the tech giant made an unusual move last month: it sold land.
According to the Mercury News, citing Santa Clara County property records, Google sold a single-family home at 911 Clintonia Ave. on March 29 for $1.4 million. The property is located in the city’s Willow Glen neighborhood, which is south of the area where the tech giant has proposed a massive corporate campus.
The buyer was Mark Blaszczyk, according to the Mercury News.
Google bought the site less than four months ago as part of a package deal that included another property—a single-family home at 538 Lorraine Ave. Located in downtown San Jose, the Lorraine Avenue site is inside the area Google plans to develop. The tech giant spent $4 million on both houses, but only sold the Clintonia Avenue property.
For the past two years, Google has been on a shopping spree in downtown San Jose. Thus far, Google has spent $319.5 million acquiring land for a transit-oriented village near Diridon Station. Google’s campus will include offices, homes, restaurants and retail space. In total, the project will have room for up to 25,000 jobs.
A Google spokesperson did not immediately respond to request for comment.
