Great idea. I think I might be going to San Jose next weekend so I might be able to take pictures.

Edit: I asked my friend and he told me we're going to San Jose on May not March.

Thanks for the pics. I've always been curious about what the "Technological Capital of the Universe" looked like. Very nice, quaint buildings. A bit too sterile. Just add some people, actually A LOT more people and those pictures would look complete.

Actually the real capital of the Silicon Valley exists outside of Downtown. The real silicon valley would be West San Jose-Milpitas-Paloalto-Santaclara_cupertino.
haha SOme peoplewpuld include Fremont too.
Yea I live in Hayward, East bay and Go to school in San Jose (San Jose State in Downtown Its the pic with the LIbrary and green campus)

5 years here and it still amazes me that there are sooo many tech heavyweights here (actually all of them)

Great pictures. While it grew through decades of suburban-style, sprawl, over the past decade, downtown San Jose has really been built-up & the city has taken on a much more urban flavor.

Too bad the airport is too close to DT, so that no building could be
taller than about 280ft. I wonder if they could try to change the flight pattern.

This is the tower planned for Market St. behind the California Theatre:


This is the complex just under way on San Fernando St accros from the Cinebar (San Jose's best bar ever!)

Go here for more info on this project:

San Jose has over a dozen prposed or under construction high-rise projects for the downtown area. It really is a shame that the airport is so close, but height isn't everything. Im sure SJ will have a beautiful and interesting skyline soon enough.

Im sure SJ will have a beautiful and interesting skyline soon enough. It has already begun. Oh and it may have a second downtown by 2030. A large part of north first street will be developed into a mixture of High-rise residential and commercial. I think it will be the strip of north first between Brokaw and Montague.

You mean the Guadalupe River? I've heard that it's one of the most polluted rivers around or something
