Ah interesting signs.I can't find any articles about it, but the county installed new signs on both sides of the County Government Center building at 70 W Hedding. The brutalist architechure may not be for everyone, but I think the signs look really cool! They are highly visible from the 87 freeway and definitely add to the skyline.
Such signage on high rise buildings is very suburban in look and feel. Not something that should be encouraged on landmark buildings in SJ.I can't find any articles about it, but the county installed new signs on both sides of the County Government Center building at 70 W Hedding.

I made one comment recently in the SJ thread about local entrepreneurs vs investor-backed retail. I don't recall making a statement like what you're suggesting.Didn't you say we are in a long-term depression that is basically going to wipe out America industry, retail, property values, etc? Who would develop property in such a climate?
The county building is not post modern, a movement which started as a backlash against cold modernism by adding back non-structural decorative elements to buildings. The Fairmont is a prime example of post-modernism. One of the main critiques of post modernism is that if done sloppily, they tend to look like theme park buildings.Ah interesting signs.
I believe this is an example of "post modern" architecture which followed and overlapped the brutalist period.

BART passenger service is estimated to begin June 13, with the overcrossing making its opening debut closer to the winter holiday shopping season.
hopefully this pedestrian bridge will help that cause. montague and capitol are busy arterial streets designed to move massive amounts of vehicles. prior to the quarantine, they were struggling to do that. if greater pedestrian right of way is given across these arterials, milpitas is going to have a cluster F on their hands.While I do like some of the work that they are doing near Milpitas BART, that Montague Expressway/Great Mall Way intersection is one of the most unwalkable, pedestrian-unfriendly ones I have ever come across, and they have not done anything to address that in the years leading up to the station opening.
