The 411,618 square foot Solyndra building in Fremont, California has been put on the market:

The office area of the grand compound is certified "LEED Gold Standards," according to a website set up to sell the building. It's "Expandable to 739,232 square feet." 

 

Solyndra, the green energy firm that received $528 million in a Department of Energy loan, filed for bankruptcy in September. As Bloomberg reported, "Solyndra, heralded by President Barack Obama as proof that 'the promise of clean energy isn’t just an article of faith,' filed for bankruptcy in September, days before the FBI raided its headquarters in Fremont, California. The company received a $535 million loan guarantee under the Energy Department’s Loan Guarantee Program in September 2009 that was funded by the Treasury’s Federal Financing Bank, a government corporation created by Congress in 1973."

The price of the Fremont Solyndra building is not listed on the website set up to help sell the property. Calls this evening to the realtor were not answered.
