Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced yesterday that it will move its corporate headquarters to Santa Clara from Palo Alto.
HPE will sell the Palo Alto building and relocate employees to the new state-of-the-art offices at 3333 Scott Boulevard, near Bowers Avenue and the always-packed Santa Clara Square. Santa Clara will be the new global headquarters of HPE by the end of 2018.
HPE also announced that some employees will be moved to other locations in Milpitas and San Jose. It’s good to know that HPE believes that Santa Clara is the “Center of What’s Possible.”
But it looks like San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo didn’t read the press release correctly.
“San Jose mayor Sam Liccardo is spinning the decision as a win for his less-fashionable tail end of Silicon Valley,” writes Simon Sharwood of the Register.

The Mission City is now home to Nvidia, Intel, HPE, as well as countless other major tech companies. According to HPE sources, the company did not demand a curfew extension as part of their move.
