I haven't a single thing since the fire. It would be a perfect spot for a residential tower.

This rezoning app looks like it might be related:

Quote:
C13-047
Applicant: PARK DELMAS INVESTORS LLC
Location: South side of Park Avenue, between Sonoma Avenue and Delmas Avenue
Address: 248 SONOMA ST
Description: Conforming Rezoning from LI Light Industrial zoning district to DC Downtown Core zoning district on a 1.72 gross acre site

http://www.sanjoseca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/23578
Edit: Does anyone know what's up with this:

Quote:
H13-041 St James Tower Site Permit

Site Development Permit to demolish a single-famly residence (152 Terraine Street), remove 5 ordinance sized trees, and to allow a mixed-use development consisting of a 6-level parking garage (three levels below grade), up to 20,000-square-feet of retail, and up to 804 multi-family residential units within two towers (20-stories and 22-stories), on a 1.8 gross acre site.
I just walked by the site on Monday and the board still said ~15,800 square-feet of retail and 643 units.

As I recall, the original plan didn't include the SFR on Terraine St. This would presumably be an expansion of the plans based on the extra space. I'm sure they'll update the sign soon enough.

Yeah, I mostly found the increased unit count weird (it's gone from 612 -> 643 -> up to 804). I guess the number is still in flux and they're just covering their bases. The retail part I expected since they mentioned they were in negotiations to buy that house on Terraine at the community meeting last month.

I think it's about as close as the axis building.

I think it would be a great spot for a residential tower, or at least mid-rise, (though probably more suited for middle class residents, rather than luxury condos). Park Ave is a good bit quieter than San Carlos, and I think that area between San Carlos and the San Fernando light rail station would be a great spot for some more density.

Downtown shouldn't look like it ends at 87, I was looking at this area on Google maps, and YES, Anything built should be minimum 5-6 stories, higher wherever possible. The fact that it's close to the freeway sounds like it would drive rent down, but think of the views of centera, st James apts, and the rest of the growing skyline from any units facing east.....more reason to build taller

That whole area could be much more beautiful if a little attention was paid, and some more color, lights, and height added.

Yea I don't see the proximity to the freeway here as a bad thing. The off ramp to Delmas is perfect for someone who would live there. My only concern is the pedestrian under crossing of 87. I think it's safe , but as a pedestrian at night, it's a long walk from the nearest building on the east side of 87 because of the river crossing. If something large does go in there I hope the city keeps this in mind during the planning stages.

Wow, really a "village" boom. The thing that all 4 mega-projects seem to have in common is combining office park amenities (free parking, controlled environment) with urban amenities (direct access to a mixed retail, entertainment, housing and office environment).

Whether the Levi's Stadium projects can match SR remains to be seen. The one across Winchester (Century Theaters) just needs to not mess it up, given the traffic already attracted by SR and Valley Faire.

Great win indeed! I work in the patent space and because of this news our new firm is particularly interested in establishing ourselves in DTSJ. The ties to SJSU, cheap rent, and easy access by rail make it a no brainier!

I wonder if it's possible for Legacy to get that building rezoned for mixed-use. That way they could convert the empty space into luxury executive lofts- I'm sure they'd get more than the $2NNN they are getting right now.

Yesterday, One South's crane sections have started arriving to the site The crane sections are being staged on San Pedro and Post.

Centerra brought in some pretty crazy equipments on Friday. I saw something that looks like a motorized arm about the size of a long bus, along side all the drilling equipments that have been there. Looks like they're close to raising their crane, too.
