New investor partners with Boston Properties on massive San Jose office campus near Google project
By Matthew Niksa – Commercial real estate reporter, Silicon Valley Business Journal

A board that invests the assets of the Canada Pension Plan on Tuesday announced that it had partnered with office development giant Boston Properties Inc. to jointly develop Platform 16, a fully entitled 1.1-million-square-foot office campus near San Jose's Diridon Station . . . .

The project is slated to include three six-story office buildings and is adjacent to Google's planned, 6.5-million-square-foot transit village and to Diridon Station, which consists of Caltrain, VTA light rail and the ACE train and planned BART and high-speed rail lines . . . .

Boston Properties is demolishing existing single-story buildings and parking lots on the project site and relocating utilities off site. It expects to finish clearing the site by the first quarter of 2020, Sherman Chan, senior vice president of CBRE, told the Business Journal this week.

. . . construction on the project, which is fully entitled, can commence once the site is cleared and that it will take about three years. He said the buildings are designed to accommodate either a single high-tech tenant or multiple high-tech tenants due to its floorplates, which range from 25,000 to 90,000 square feet, 16 outdoor terraces, 15-feet floor-to-floor ceiling heights and its amenities.

Big office tower poised to be a new gateway to San Jose

SAN JOSE — A big office tower featuring an urban plaza, a rooftop terrace, and a sky port for air taxis is being proposed as a gateway to downtown San Jose, to be built on a property owned by a legendary Silicon Valley developer.

Davidson Plaza Tower, a 14-story high rise, would be built near the corner of West Julian Street and Terraine Street in downtown San Jose.

A partnership consisting of Urban Community real estate executives Gary Dillabough and Jeff Arrillaga, and Terrascape Ventures developers Tony Arreola and Mark Lazzarini has been formed to develop the proposed office tower. The sleek complex is planned for the site of the existing Charles Davidson Building.

“It’s a risky business and I’m glad Gary and his partners are willing to take on the challenge like I did many years ago,” said Charles Davidson, who in 1985 developed the building that now occupies the site.
A new office building downtown, with potentially 4000 new employees working downtown.

"Google is eyeing north San Jose’s Assembly at First tech development and is planning to lease a big chunk of space in the complex, according to several sources who are familiar with the Silicon Valley property market.

Mountain View-based Google is said to be in talks to lease as much as 800,000 to 900,000 square feet in Assembly at First, according to the real estate sources with knowledge of the transaction.

If the Assembly at First transaction is completed in the size range that has been reported by a number of knowledgeable sources, the deal could pave the way for Google to fashion its fourth major campus in San Jose alone."

The East Bay Times reports on the official groundbreaking of 200 Park, to be built on speculation:

Quote:
The new office building is expected to total 875,000 square feet.

“We are very excited about this,” said Jay Paul, president of the company that bears his name. “We have made a major commitment to downtown San Jose.”

The new office building is expected to rise 19 stories.

“It will soon be the newest and tallest office building in downtown San Jose,” said Matt Lituchy, chief investment officer with Jay Paul Co.

The building, which was designed by Gensler and is being constructed by Level 10, could potentially accommodate 3,500 to 4,400 workers.

“This is the last parcel that we need for the mixed-use project we’re planning,” said Erik Hayden, president of Urban Catalyst, which was formed to create funds that can capitalize on tax advantages provided by opportunity zones in places such as Oakland and downtown San Jose.

Acting through an affiliate, Urban Catalyst bought a narrow lot on First Street just south of East Santa Clara Street and the Bank of Italy office tower, according to documents filed with Santa Clara County officials on Nov. 15.

UC Fountain Alley, the affiliate, paid $2.1 million for the parcel, the county documents show.

Swenson, a stalwart real estate development firm, was the seller. UC Fountain Alley also obtained $4.8 million in financing from Presidio Mortgage Holdings to bankroll the purchase, according to property records.

Urban Catalyst now owns three parcels that are adjacent to each other with addresses of 26, 30, and 36 S. First St.

The area surrounding the project site is characterized primarily by the mixed-use development of Santana Row and the Westfield Valley Fair Shopping Mall. Development of the project would entail demolition of the existing restaurant and construction of a five-story, 75 foot structure providing 82,068 square feet of office space and 12,928 square feet of retail space. The maximum height of the structure would be 75 feet, though the maximum allowable height is 85 feet.

The project would comprise office space on levels two through five, retail space on the ground floor, and below grade parking utilizing mechanized parking equipment.

Construction would begin in February 2020, and the project is expected to be operational in February 2022.

The project would be located near the corner of Park Avenue and McEvoy Street, which is close to the western edges of the sites where Google is planning a transit-oriented development.

A total of 762 residential units are envisioned, according to the proposals on file with San Jose city planners.

Included in that total: 330 affordable units, the city planning documents show.

The addresses where the housing development would rise include 205 and 214 Dupont St., and 226, 244, 254 McEvoy St., city planning documents show.

SAN JOSE — In a record-setting splurge of spending, developers, investors and tech companies have gobbled up properties in downtown San Jose, paying out more than $3 billion in three years.

The land rush extends far beyond Google’s head-spinning shopping spree near the bustling SAP Center and aging Diridon train station. If Google dominated the first two years of the buying binge, the last year has marked the arrival of stalwart developer Jay Paul Co., which is eyeing two major projects to create new tech campuses that would reshape the San Jose skyline and fuel downtown activity.

“Google’s planning for a major South Bay campus in the Diridon Station area has triggered a virtual gold rush for downtown real estate,” said David Buchholz, a senior vice president with Colliers International, a commercial real estate firm.

But experts offer one caveat: All that buying needs to be followed with construction.

...

Class A office rents — rents for modern office buildings — in downtown San Jose averaged $4.74 a square foot in the first quarter of 2019, up 14.5 percent from the same period in 2018, Newmark Knight Frank determined.

Rental rates in downtown San Jose are rising slightly more quickly than in downtown Oakland. However, San Francisco’s office rental rates have galloped ahead of those in the downtown districts of San Jose and Oakland. During the first quarter of 2019, San Francisco’s monthly office rents were $7.26 per square foot, up 19 percent from the year before, according to Collier International research. Downtown Oakland office rents were at $5 per square foot a month, up 14.2 percent from one year earlier, Colliers reported.
To be honest I think a lot of this includes speculation about the effect of having BART stations open there in 10-20 years. But there has been a significant increase in rents recently, about 5 years ago rents were about $3/sqft/mo for class A space, now it is about $5/sqft/mo. Jay Paul and a few other players have been heavily investing, and it is a welcome move IMO, as the big office parks they were building in Sunnyvale have worsened traffic, and increased car dependence in the valley. Having office parks near transit, like these office buildings by Jay Paul, and when it gets built Google, will have a positive impact.

Though I don't think that office complex that Google is leasing in Brokaw and Bering ^^^ will lead to that. But I can't blame them, they got a lot of protests from trying to move to downtown, while, the office parks in North San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino etc are never protested.
