At the same time you could also film the additional new traditional office going up across the expressway, new office at the corner of San Tomas and Scott, and finally the last phases of Boston Properties residential going up on Scott just a block or two away.
Sure thing! I can do that once the rain is gone haha.

If you have any other places in mind just let me know and I will definitely trek out and take some shots.

Another new hotel proposal in Milpitas. It's on the site of the old fitness center, 1000 Jacklin Rd near 680. The hotel will be the La Quinta brand, 5 stories with 1 level of underground parking.

I would love the added height and Milpitas branding that people will see when they're driving on 680. More money from hotel tax for this little city as well. I saw some comments from Facebook saying they should build a school here instead... lol...

Milpitas' residents on nextdoor and facebook (primarily on the mayors page) are total NIMBYs and delusional idiots. I know they are heavily opposing this but luckily its up to the planning commission to approve.

Food not storefronts will take center stage at Related Santa Clara

https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/...tail-food.html

Quote:
When it opens in about four years, this “global food market” will provide Santa Clara and Bay Area residents a high caliber of dining options that range in cuisine choices and price points, according to Kenneth Himmel, president and CEO of Related Urban, a division of New York-based Related Companies.

“We expect a mix of chefs that are both local and from the Bay Area and Pacific Coast — from Portland to Napa to the Central Coast — as we draw on the rich flavors of the region as well as the farm-to-table traditions people have come to expect,” Himmel said in an email.

“And there will be a wide array of food-and-beverage offerings throughout the development,” he said. “Every single block, without exception, will have restaurants, because that’s what you would find in a city.”

But it will not include anchor department stores, which at one time was potentially part of its tenant mix. Rather, the market will feature between 40 and 45 individual food stalls, between six and eight smaller cafes, taverns and bistros, and a couple of two-floor restaurants.

Global Food Market totaling 115,000 sq.ft.


Gateway Office - 10 story 430,000 sq.ft. office building


Residential Units totaling 1,680 units


Business Hotel with 480 rooms


Serviced Apartments - 175 units


Uber Skyport


Northwest Office Campus - up to 1 million sq.ft. of office space

This is in-line with the current dominant formula of building a 'hood with modern amenities but with better aesthetics, maintenance, security and enforcement of standards.

But this location sounds a bit dicey. This kind of development usually relies on a pre-existing tourist demand (say, SF, Manhattan) or some other way to draw large numbers (quality retail, theaters, an ocean front). I don't picture this area with either the upscale crowds of Santana Row or the consistent, 7-nights a week techie and Asian vibe of Main St. Cupertino.

The interaction with Levi's is somewhat positive but that's just 8 Sundays a year plus rushes before concerts. This disrupts the usability of the area for locals and may lead to continuing tension between tenants and businesses.

they're attempting to build a city within a city here where the retail customer base is the employees and residents. when fully built out and including the tasman east residential, we could be looking at 50-60k people here on a daily basis. there are a lot of parallels to what google is doing at diridon with this project. its roughly the same commercial square footage, similar housing and retail numbers, all in a footprint that's 3x the acreage. the interaction with levi's is the icing on the cake where retail and hotel business will skyrocket for 15-20 days a year.

You could be right, but that sounds more like the old model. Now retail is eliminated and it's becoming a giant food court. Marginally useful for residents and marginally useful for pre-game.

By contrast, LG, Cupertino and Sunnyvale have shopping. Related's other big developments (Hudson Yard, Grand Ave.) have world class architecture, retail, major theaters and art galleries plus a huge built-in tourist base.

I don't see that happening in Santa Clara without some retail or other continuing source of people.

sand hill is dusting off sb35 again, this time in saratoga, to produce 91 units in a mixed use town home & commercial development. do they cue the nimby pushback? or will they accept their fate?

“Saratoga has a long history of cautiously approving residential projects that take years to ultimately come in front of council and they’re not always successful,” he said. “But in this case, the state offered us another avenue.”

On Thursday, Sand Hill Property Co. officials submitted plans to the city, announcing its intent to use the law to build the two- to four-bedroom townhomes alongside about 5,000 square feet of commercial space in place of the existing Quito Village retail center. The retail center today spans about 80,000 square feet in size, but it is 25 percent occupied, according to Sand Hill.

If approved through SB 35, each townhome would stand two stories tall, spanning 1,700 to 2,400 square feet and have a two-car garage. The site would include new green space, a community garden and a rose garden, a children’s play area and barbecues where today is primarily parking spaces.

wow, their outgoing mayor is nuts! sounds like the new guy at least comprehends the situation and the resident sentiment he's up against.

filseth hits the nail on the head here:
Quote:
In the mid-Peninsula, office space leases for [up to] $12 per square foot, high-end housing for maybe $4.00, and affordable housing well under that. So no surprise, we get a lot of investment in the first of those, much less in the second, and none in the third unless we subsidize it.

Cities like business tax revenues and hate spending money. Basically the formula has been: green light every commercial project, and let somebody else worry about the increasingly expensive housing, transportation, and infrastructure.
but then he goes on a mindless rant about how the problem is incurable. it's difficult to read most of that drivel.
