Drone maker Arcturus UAV moves to Petaluma; WeWork Marin expands
It was one of the biggest leases of commercial space in the Marin-Sonoma corridor in 2018, but the move of aerial drone maker Arcturus UAV to Petaluma flew under the radar.
After its takeoff in 2007 from the mind of founder D’Milo Hallerberg, Arcturus UAV has soared to greater heights in the world of making unmanned aerial vehicles. While it is a defense contractor, the company makes UAVs for surveillance, mapping and remote sensing, rather than lethal attack.
In November, the company inked a nine-year lease for 98,000 square feet of industrial space at 1035 and 1039 N. McDowell Blvd. in Petaluma and moved in in the first months of this year. That includes about 80,000 square feet of former Calix space at 1035 N.
