We will continue to work to identify the best possible space for the San Jose Mercury News’ newsgathering, sales and operation units going forward,” said Steve Rossi, President and Publisher of the Bay Area News Group. “We are proud to have found a partner in this sale in Super Micro Computer that is also invested in our community.”

The sale agreement includes the 35.68-acre campus – currently home to the San Jose Mercury News and Bay Area News Group, including the 312,000-square-foot main building and 12,000-square foot garage.

The San Jose Mercury News will continue to occupy the building and plans to relocate operations in 2014.
