It's like an iconic building for the small city of Milpitas. Let us enjoy how amazing it looks compared to other BART stations.

The city of Milpitas and VTA are planning to create a new pedestrian overcrossing where I highlighted in red. Construction begins in 2018 and will finish in 2019.

The land where it connects to is about ~1000 housing units, including a new 12-story residential tower.

Hamster runs like these are the antithesis of walkable urbanism.

"Future transit residential"!

I agree with earlier posters, but I would phrase it like so: the designs for the Berryessa and Milpitas BART stations and environs are catastrophically bad and morally reprehensible.

What fascinates me is that most likely Masters-degree'd planners come up with designs like these. How is this possible? What is the mentality of those who do these things?

meanwhile, in Redwood City, around its Caltrain station, you have this...



and this...





and looking past the building in the previous shots, another visible going up in the near-distance



(and if I'd had a couple more minutes on my hurried walk to the train, I could have taken shots of two more projects walkable from the station that are going up now. link there's still a lot than can be done - RWC started out with a ton of surface parking lots -, and I think they've added too much parking with these developments, but I do give RWC some credit for its efforts)

Milpitas is one of California's most YIMBY cities. It's pretty great.

New renderings of The Graduate in downtown San Jose, located next to San Jose State University. It doesn't have those inflatable air dancers anymore and they changed the color from yellow to orange.

Quote:
The Graduate is a 260-unit/1,039 bed off-campus student housing project located on a 1.5-acre site, located within one block of the San Jose State University (SJSU) in San Jose, California. It will be a newly constructed property designed to meet the needs of students and will be located one block west of SJSU and less than 0.5 miles from the central core of the campus.

Demolition and construction will begin Summer 2017.

The Graduate is expected to be completed in 2019.

San Jose really needs to step it a lot in the high rise # department from only 56 to well over 400 which be more like it. The city needs to take initiatives to build a lot of new towers in and around downtown and not nick picking it.

and a better shot of the project seen in the distance in the first pic

Tbh, thanks for posting pictures of Redwood City. Glad to see they have nice development in that area too.

I love seeing new development anywhere in the Bay Area.
