Driving back home last night I noticed the crane at Silvery Towers.

Not sure if this is news to this group

San Jose: Council allows plan for seven-story, mixed-use building to advance

The San Jose City Council has rezoned a 1.7-acre parcel near the heart of the city's transit core so plans for a $50 million mixed-use development can advance.

By rezoning the property at 138 Stockton Ave. from commercial to planned development at its Feb. 23 meeting, the council allowed developer Hudson Companies to construct a seven-story building with 164 market-rate apartment units and 37,5000 square feet of commercial space less than half a mile from the Diridon Station.

To clear the property for development, Hudson intends to raze two buildings that have been designated as structures of merit in the city's Historic Resources Inventory.

When the proposed development was presented at a community meeting last fall, a local housing advocate complained about the lack of affordable units.

But no one objected to the project at last week's council meeting, although Hudson Properties was required to establish a curbside loading zone for commercial and residential use.

Three floors of retail/office in a 7 story building. Hopefully this is the start of a trend.

They haven't fully installed the crane tower yet. It's the first time ever that I've seen an incomplete crane tower. Are they incompetent?

Kudos for San Jose: The 10th best city to live, according US News and World Report, citing that San Jose has a distinct downtown. Air China will fly to Shanghai from San Jose's Mineta airport in the summer.

Excellent news! There's more of a fascination here with San Jose and Silicon Valley than San Francisco. Why? They generally appreciate our more suburban style and our tech companies.

Although the startup climate isn't as hot as Beijing, Shanghai is seeing growth in that sector and Alibaba is a short distance away. Good news all around!

Hotel By SR

Another interesting permit came up.

Ref: H16-010 Project Location: 2850 STEVENS CREEK BL Site Development Permit to demolish an existing gas station and to construct an 11-story boutique hotel with 173 rooms and 190 parking spaces on a 0.5-gross acre site

This may have been mentioned before but i see the permits coming up again.

Nice but kind of suburban. Something you might see in Pleasanton or down in Orange County.

Doesn't seem like something that will be the transit center of the West Coast within a couple of years of it being completed.

[QUOTE=HILLRISE;131132763]http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/n...eddiridon.html

[QUOTE] To start with the basics, DIRIDON includes 940,000 square feet of office space in two, 12- and 13-story towers set above roughly 35,000 square feet of retail and dining. Another 10-story tower, on the west side of Delmas Avenue, will hold 325 apartments.

"Office development has changed significantly," he said. "A typical downtown high-rise used to be a front door, lobby and office space above. Our focus is much broader and is all about place making."

He cited the "ground plane" (aka, street level), which will have amenities such as food and public/private gathering spaces. The retail component forms a more pedestrian-scale base to the office above, with lots of outdoor seating. The historic Water Company building on the site, which will be restored, will also likely be repurposed as a restaurant. Parking will primarily be underground, and the position of the public access near the Guadalupe River will be designed to "channel" pedestrians through the plaza (likely to be a popular hang-out spot on game days.) All of which is designed to create a lot of street-level vibrancy. '

I think you need to decide whether you make these statements after it's 100% confirmed, or stop complaining when something is at risk at falling through. The bipolar swings confuse newer readers on the forum. I'm guessing what you actually mean is they're aiming for summer, awaiting city approval.

I think similar buildings (size and aesthetics wise) with some ground floor commercial could fit well in some of the city's urban village areas.

Actually, this one will do it! Tramell with John Grier and his development buddy will break ground in the summer/early fall. They're very good team to pull it off. This one will happen. No confusion here

Oops, Silvery Towers contractor partially erected a crane without a permit from the city, and the FAA is giving the city fits. The city said that they'll get it within 2 weeks, not early this week. Gotta wait!

This isn't news for these forums, but more details on the proposed hotel near Santana Row

http://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/n...a.html?ana=twt

Quote:
Developer Tony Baig's VillaDevelopers Inc. is proposing an 11-story hotel on the half-acre site at 2850 Stevens Creek, according to planning documents filed this week. The project would include 173 guest rooms and a top-floor restaurant and balcony overlooking the area, which is San Jose's main retail node.

...

The project site is pretty small, so parking would be tucked into the building above grade on floors two through five. Guest rooms would be on floors six through 10.

Very solid and promising projects:

Trammel Crow 2 building project
Post Tower
Gateway Tower*if they get going soon before the lending partner changes its mind
Sparq*same as above
KT Property 2 tower at Greyhound


Weaker and not so promising projects:

Parkview
North San Pedro
2 Civic Center towers*for now
condo tower proposed on 4th
150 South Second Sobrato Tower

2850 Stevens Creek. Parking on floors 2-5 with hotel rooms above. Nice for a small lot but I wish they would do more at incorporating the parking podium with the hotel portion. Looks a little disjointed.

Beautiful office component that really incorporates the SJWC building and "river" into the design.

No comment on the apartment

Would be better for them to go with wrap style construction in order to hide the parking garage.

I'm not sure wrapping is an option with a lot of that size...

Parkview
I got a letter in the mail from the city planners for a hearing about Parkview towers (since I live in the affected radius) on March 16th. I don't know if that says anything about the project moving forward.
