Exactly, that would be a perfect place for something like this. That would be like a signature gateway to Downtown San Jose from the south.

Build something like that and I bet they could get a hip, high-flying tech company to lease it.

We can dream right?

Definitely interesting and unique because it has a lot of open space at street level. Perhaps a building like that on Santa Clara Street would work, but it can be placed close to either St. James' Square or along Stevens Creek Boulevard.

Interesting. Seems to continue the trend of the large or expanding companies moving to low to midrise in the undeveloped suburbs with smaller companies filling in their old digs in town.

Wow, warehousing and offices should really take advantage of proximity to the new stadium...

Two things... First I saw the pre ration for the Market/Reed project now called The Pierce. Very urban 7 story 230 luxury unit apartment complex with heavy neighborhood input. They want to possibly put in artist spaces to connect the west side of market with SOFA. I think this project will be a hit and the plans are being submitted to the city tomorrow. I don't have any renderings to share yet.

Also being re-submitted tomorrow is the revised Hampton Inn renderings which have change. It will now be 8 stories with the first 2 floors creating the base, updated from only one. I have not seen these renderings yet, but the changes include removing the cornices from the roof and a bit more of a diverse design. We'll see, but height addition already improves the project.

Double post, eh? But I'm curious on a few things:

• The revised Hampton Inn layout will have two floors as its base. Aside from a lobby and concierge on the ground floor, what will be placed on the second floor, if not hotel rooms? Hopefully, it will host to a small commercial center or convention rooms that will provide additional rental space for the city, if not a venue for meetings...

• @krudmonk indeed. But why warehouses when the Earthquakes Stadium would host more people watching events rather than a good-sized commercial district full of shops, restaurants, and hotels? Yes, I'm for the offices, but I think warehouses can be co-located with the rest of the high-tech campuses on N First Street and its environs. It's like, I wonder what types of warehouses are we referring to in this case...

Thanks for the update, looking forward to seeing how these two projects turn out. Have you seen any renderings/drawings of phase I of NSP?

Krudmonk and the SVBJ article are referencing the 49ers stadium which is relatively close to Alviso, not the Quakes stadium.

Oops, I must've misread that since there are two stadia under construction right now. I believe that indeed, warehouses should be built close to Levi's Stadium; the only thing is, what about Bay preservation? How will it impact natural restoration of the San Francisco Bay in the process?

A Silicon Valley Business Journal has an article about the tax benefits to Santa Clara County from getting the Super Bowl.

The bottom part of the article has this:

Boston Properties may be unloading 303 Almaden in San Jose, but the huge REIT will likely hold on to its 3.6 acres next door, where it’s entitled for 850,000 square feet of office.
I first reported Boston Properties’ potential exit from downtown online May 1. Sam Liccardo, who recently met with executives, told me he expects the development site to remain with BXP. “The question is: What will it resemble?” he said.
While downtown office space has been sluggish, the residential rental market there is red-hot. So is hospitality, with a number of hotel trades and a new development being proposed for the area. That begs the question of whether Boston might seek to reconfigure the site for something else.
Liccardo declined to speculate, but added: “I’m hopeful we may see a proposal from them in the coming months.” Stay tuned.

From the Planning Director's Hearing Agenda for next week:

PD12-019. Planned Development Permit to allow construction of up to approximately
675,000 square feet of office, 8,200 square feet of retail, and a 4-story parking structure on
an approximately 30 gross acre site in the A(PD) Planned Development Zoning District,
located on the west side of Coleman Avenue approximately 600 feet northlery of Newhall
Drive (former FMC site)


That is the first part of the development between the proposed Santa Clara BART station and the San Jose Earthquakes Stadium.

Tentative Map to consolidate two parcels into one condominium lot for a
high-rise mixed-use project containing 347 residential units and approximately
11,353 square feet of retail/commercial on a 1.258 gross acre site in the DC
Downtown Core Zoning District, located at the block bounded by W. St. John
Street, N. Almaden Avenue, Carlysle Street, and Notre Dame Street (Livingston
Block Inc, Owner).


This is the Centerra project. Interesting that it states 11,353 sq feet of retail/commercial instead of 7000 that has been reported recently.

The 11,353 is retail/commercial so it probably includes the leasing office.
