Where is a good place in Silicon Valley for a warehouse and manufacturing space, and what is the price range per square foot? My answer on Quora

As a very general rule, the further South and East you go, the better.  More inventory, better pricing

The Peninsula (Mtn View- north) is pretty much a non-starter for industrial space aside from smaller multi-tenant buildings.  Most recent industrial lease I did in Mtn View was at about $1.00/sf for an older building.

Sunnyvale/Santa Clara-more inventory.  Average rents are comparable to Mtn View, but you tend to get a little newer product for the same rent.

San Jose:  A much larger industrial market, so more options.  Rents more consistently in the .65-.80 NNN range.

Fremont also a pretty good industrial market, with rents a tad higher than SJ averages, but comparable.

A lot of the variation in rents is more related to the image and quality of the prevalent product in a given city– if you do an apples-to-apples comparison of individual available buildings, rents go down the farther you get from the Peninsula/North Silicon Valley
