Kudos to downtown: downtown is Silicon Valley's hottest nightlife district, according to Lyft. It's nice to see downtown take command of our entertainment in the valley with Santana Row being the next hot spot after downtown.

It's from the actual staff, not the newsletter.

Does anyone know who updates the ThinkBiggerSJ map? It seems like it needs to be updated sometime soon, what with Ohlone / Silver, DIRIDON, Modera, etc. being constructed now or very soon.

Awesome if true, then. Sounds like when I return to the Bay Area on the 22nd of Jan. from vacation, I'll see some fun action on my morning light rail ride! Watching DIRIDON get built is gonna be really, really awesome.

Huh. You're right. I can't access the website anymore. Bummer. Well, perhaps someone should take over the map then.

The U.S. development arm of Beijing Damei Investment Co. is targeting the Spring of 2017 to break ground on SJSC Towers in DTSJ. I believe this is the real McCoy since Beijing Damei won't be relying on U.S. fInancing to move forward. Great news for the beginning of the New Year.

Maybe this was already announced/discussed but wasn't the original plan for one tower to be office/commercial and the other to the residential?

This will most likely happen since it's not the U.S. investors(yeah cockroaches, Raymanhood). Since these are legitimate investors, they will break ground in April.

Will these be the tallest residential buildings in the city? Haven't seen anything with that many floors, yet.

What buildings are you talking about? SJSC towers are supposed to be 295ft tall if I recall correctly making them the tallest buildings in San Jose.
http://www.thesanjoseblog.com/2015/1...ld-be-san.html

Presumably the tallest residential building(s) in the Bay Area outside of San Francisco, and the tallest residential building between LA and SF.

And located literally right next to the future downtown BART stop. Nice. Wish one of the towers was still for offices, though.

This view really shows the sharp drop-off between downtown and, well, not. Wow.

I don't think this new rendering of SJSC has been posted (there was another angle posted in the High Rise Incentive memo though):



It's from their most recent site development permit submittal (which I can't find).

Looks much better than before. So is it allowed to be 28 floors because it doesn't interfere with the flight path to SJC? Perhaps that City Hall area could become the place where taller office buildings (~25 floors or higher, but preferably actually around 35-40 because we need some tall ones) go, to make the drop off shown in Dark Economist's post less stark. That area is within walking distance to future BART.

like the world's tallest tower I've been suggesting to get San Jose back on the map of the world.
