LeEco is reportedly selling the site for its Silicon Valley HQ

Reuters says the tech corporation plans to sell the site to Chinese developer Genzon Group for $260 million, $10 million more than what it paid for the property last year. Genzon confirmed that the site’s sale is currently under negotiation but didn’t mention anything more than that. LeEco told TechCrunch it has “nothing to announce at this time.”

The Chinese conglomerate originally wanted to turn the site into an open environment HQ called EcoCity to house up to 12,000 employees. That number sounds impossible to achieve at this point in time. In addition to selling its Silicon Valley property, it also reportedly downsized its workforce in the US, in India and in its home country. We might not even see a launch for the EV it’s developing. Faraday Future, the US company that’s working with LeEco to create its electric car, is in dire financial straits, as well.
