The Historic Del Monte Building, Satellite Sunnyvale
The Historic Del Monte Building, home to Satellite Workplaces for more than ten years and a large part of Sunnyvale history, was built in 1904. This area boasted orchards and fruit for miles. At first, dried fruits were processed here.
From 1930-1986 this building was used for seed processing and research. In 1993, no longer active, the Del Monte Building was moved across the street, to the corner of Murphy and Evelyn, in order to avoid demolition. It was then renovated for Commercial use: a hotel/restaurant, then an event space hosting weddings and banquets, and a coworking space today.
This special location was dedicated as a Historic Building in March of 1999. The plaque on the building notes the contribution to local history and business.
Satellite owners and members alike love the location right in the middle of downtown and its action as well as proximity to the train station. Location, Location, Location!
A lot of people have come through these doors over the years. One new member walked into Satellite and gasped. “Oh my gosh, I got married here”! Nice memory for him going back to the event space days. And a heartwarming story for us!
We at Satellite are proud to participate in the continued legacy of this building. The location is prime, near restaurants, cafes, and the train station. The history is rich. We have enjoyed working with so many businesses and individuals, from startups to corporations to solo ventures. We count ourselves lucky to be here and look forward to more action right here!
