I saw this post on their Instagram feed which stated their new website was just launched on May 23, so I figured it was kind of new. Oh well.

Google downtown expansion?

More details on Google's potential move to downtown.

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/06/0...sion-downtown/

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/06/0...formal-launch/

Quote:
Mountain View-based Google and the city of San Jose are discussing a potential mixed-used development that could include more than 6 million square feet of office and research space, potentially making it the company’s largest collection of tech offices. If built, it would be larger than the search giant’s roughly 3.1-million-square-foot Mountain View headquarters, known as the Googleplex, which currently is its biggest U.S. work hub.

Google’s downtown-village quest gets help from San Jose

San Jose city staff Friday proposed selling more than a dozen downtown properties to Google, to help the search giant amass the land it wants for an enormous tech campus that would bring up to 20,000 jobs and transform the Diridon Station area.

Mountain View-based Google would obtain 16 parcels from the city of San Jose and the San Jose Redevelopment Agency’s successor, if the negotiations bear fruit, according to a proposed exclusive-negotiations agreement released by the city on Friday.

...
BTW this section of downtown is right under the airport flight path so buildings may be capped as low as 100ft in height above ground level.

My biggest concerns are that they will be offices that have no ground level retail or anything open to the public. Essentially you would need a Google badge to get in. The next concern would be about housing, while there are like 13 stalled high rise proposals for downtown, it is really not enough housing for 20k people. So there would need to be more construction to make up for it.

Maybe the rents will go up enough that developers want to build there instead of Sunnyvale or Santa Clara or SF, but I don't know.

New renderings of the proposed high rise on the former Ross building.

Quote:
The site development permit proposes a 22-story mixed-use residential building with 342 dwelling units and 17,628 square feet of retail on the 0.57-acre site. The development includes a clubhouse, two indoor fitness rooms, an outdoor fitness area, pool and outdoor terrace, and a 3,000 square-foot dog run. Units range in size from studios to two bedrooms, all including an outdoor balcony.

Google’s plan for a massive San Jose tech village could grow even larger

SAN JOSE — Google’s plans to reshape a wide swath of downtown San Jose could get even bigger than previously indicated, potentially reaching 8 million square feet, according to a new staff memo prepared for a key City Council meeting next week.

That could boost Google’s already massive development plan by 2 million square feet, making it a third larger than previously indicated by San Jose city officials. At the upper end of the city’s new estimated range for the project, it would equal roughly five major regional shopping centers the size of Valley Fair mall in San Jose.

...
To give you a sense of how big that is in San Jose, downtown has 8-10M sqft of office space depending on how you measure it. 8M extra would be a very large expansion.

This would be huge if Liccardo can pull it off...

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/06/1...village-quest/

SAN JOSE — San Jose’s mayor has tall ambitions.

Seeking to reshape downtown San Jose’s low-slung skyline of boxy office towers, Mayor Sam Liccardo is eyeing ways to raise the maximum heights of buildings in the city’s urban core.

Much of downtown San Jose lies beneath or near the flight paths of airplanes arriving at, or departing from, San Jose International Airport. As a result, the city’s downtown skyline has a flattened and undistinguished look. Depending on the downtown section where a building might be constructed, city rules place height limits on buildings ranging from roughly 120 feet to 200 feet — which works out to roughly 10 to 16 stories.

“Transforming our downtown skyline and maintaining a world-class international airport each constitute important fundamental long-term economic objectives,” Liccardo wrote in a memo to the City Council, issued this week. “We’ve had to manage conflicts between the two.”

The mayor surmised that new technologies might make it possible for higher buildings to coexist with a busier airport.

“In 2006, the City commissioned an Airport Obstruction Study to determine impacts and heights of high-rise development to airline service, but aircraft technology and the airline mix at the airport have changed considerably over the last decade,” Liccardo’s letter said.

Airport proponents seek to maintain caps on building heights downtown to ensure the airport is attractive to an array of airline carriers, especially those providing international flights.

Downtown boosters, though, urge relaxed building-height limits as a way to help the downtown offer a more dramatic and visually appealing skyline.


This issue could gain urgency amid interest by Google to move as many as 20,000 of its employees into a downtown San Jose area near Diridon Station and the SAP Center sports and entertainment complex.

“Downtown San Jose and the Diridon Station area remain subject to height constraints,” Liccardo stated in his letter this week.

City officials say as many as 6 million to 8 million square feet of offices and other commercial spaces could be built near the Diridon train complex.

“It’s great to have the support of the mayor on this,” Scott Knies, executive director of the San Jose Downtown Association, said of the effort to consider raising limits on building height.

An attempt was made around 2006 to raise the downtown area’s height limits. The city commissioned a study into how proposed buildings might obstruct flights into and out of San Jose airport. Then an economic crash made that study a moot point.

“The Great Recession happened in 2008, so we stopped building high rises in San Jose and the airport shed flights, so it was no longer an issue,” Knies said Tuesday.

Now, with a booming economy, and an ever-busier airport, the two competing areas of interest could clash again.

“It appears long past time to re-evaluate the Obstruction Study, with a goal of determining if changes can be made — consistent with FAA and airline safety requirements — to maximize potential development densities in the downtown,” the mayor stated in his letter.

Federal Aviation Administration officials said the FAA doesn’t specifically set height limits on buildings near airports. But it does have power to undertake reviews.

“Under federal law, the FAA has to be given the opportunity to review any proposed structure over 200 feet high anywhere in the country, and shorter proposed structures if they are near airports,” FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said Tuesday.

The mayor specifically is seeking $100,000 to study the matter.

“If we can go higher with our buildings, it gives you a lot more options about what you can do with the architecture,” Knies said. “You could have some spires and interesting buildings in downtown San Jose. It wouldn’t just be mesas and boxy buildings.”

Good link to keep up with all the developments going on in San Jose. Not sure how often it gets updated though. Sparq needs to be moved to the "under construction" category but overall great site

Exclusive: Million-square-foot downtown San Jose campus proposed near planned Google village

SAN JOSE — The Google village project in San Jose is becoming a magnet for planned development: Two realty firms said Friday they have proposed a million-square-foot campus in an aging district of downtown along the Guadalupe River.

TMG Partners and Valley Oak Partners, two veteran Bay Area realty builders, have teamed up with a proposal to develop roughly one million square feet of offices in an old industrial area, not far from where Google is eyeing up to 8 million square feet of offices in the vicinity of Diridon Station and the SAP Center. The TMG-Valley Oak complex is on 5.4 acres north of SAP Center.
Looks like there is more interest in the area, but who knows if they'll follow through.

Nearly one million square feet of office space is underway near the Diridon Station in downtown San Jose. TMG-VOP Julian LLC, a joint venture between TMG Partners and Valley Oak Partners LLC, has submitted a preliminary review application to the City of San Jose for the development of three six-story office buildings with below-grade parking. Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates was selected as the official designer firm.

ALL THE DETAILS
Located at 440 W. Julian St. within the Diridon Station area plan, the 5.4-acre site is partially occupied by industrial buildings and 287-space parking lots. The three buildings will total 157,000 square feet, 345,000 square feet and 490,000 square feet, respectively. Each building will feature floor plates ranging from 30,000 square feet to 90,000 as well as 15-foot ceiling heights and large private terraces on every floor.

The site is bounded by North Autumn Street to the west, West Julian Street to the south and the recently opened Autumn Parkway to the east. The development has pedestrian access to the Guadeloupe River Park across Autumn Parkway and is a ten-minute walk to the restaurants at San Pedro Square, the financial center of San Jose and SAP Center arena. The project is also a short walk to Diridon Station, San Jose’s intermodal transportation hub consisting of Caltrain, VTA Light-Rail, along with the planned BART and California High Speed Rail station.

“This is one of the last development opportunities in the Bay Area that truly brings together the concept of multi-modal transportation, amenity-rich infrastructure, and state-of-the-art workspaces,” said Matt Field, chief investment officer at TMG Partners, in prepared remarks. “Downtown San Jose has come into its own with its vibrant cultural scene, diverse housing offerings and a strong and growing technology sector making it attractive to employers and employees alike. We have an opportunity to create an iconic headquarters location that will appeal to Bay Area employers of all sizes.”

The area is rapidly transforming, as negotiations for a nearby Google village development is also ongoing.

TMG’S RECENT SAN JOSE ACTIVITY
TMG’s increased activity in the San Jose office market includes the $154 million acquisition of an eight-building, 810,000-square-foot office campus from Cisco Systems in 2013. In August 2016, TMG also acquired 2460 and 2480 N. First St., a two-building, 148,000-square-foot commercial property that the company is currently renovating and leasing.

Trammell wouldn't keep buying up land in DTSJ unless something big was happening. *fingers crossed*

Google partner Trammell Crow buys more downtown San Jose properties

Parts of downtown San Jose, including SAP Center and Diridon Station. Google ally Trammell Crow has bought more properties in downtown San Jose, adding to a collection of sites being assembled for a potential Google transit village near the Diridion train station.
SAN JOSE — Google ally Trammell Crow has bought more properties in downtown San Jose, adding to a collection of sites being scooped up for a potential Google transit village near the Diridon train station.

The most recent purchases included a house and vacant land near the corner of South Montgomery and West San Carlos streets. The acquisitions closed Thursday, according to Santa Clara County records.

TC Agoge, an affiliate of Trammell Crow, paid $4.6 million for the two properties, county documents show. San Francisco-based Trammell Crow is a development partner for Mountain View-based Google in the Diridon Station development efforts.

This month alone, the TC Agoge group has bought properties at six different addresses.

Mountain View-based Google could potentially occupy 6 million to 8 million square feet of office and other space near Diridion Station and SAP Center, according to a recent memo issued by San Jose city staffers.

“Google’s vision of an integrated development in San Jose aligns with the aspirations of the City, transit agencies, surrounding neighborhoods, and downtown businesses for extraordinary architecture, urban design, environmental sustainability, retail amenities, transit ridership and vibrant public spaces,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, the city’s vice mayor and three other council members wrote in a recent letter to the City Council.

On June 20, the City Council voted 10-1 to launch the bold plan to remake the west side of downtown San Jose into a massive Google village. In the first public test, the council agreed to negotiate exclusively with Google to sell 16 city-owned parcels to the search giant.

“Google understands that we are an important part of the community,” Mark Golan, a Google vice president of real estate services for Northern California, told the City Council on June 20 prior to the governing body’s vote. “We all share an interest in getting it right.”

The property purchases that occurred in June, which included clusters at the north end of where Google is eyeing a potential vast transit village, and the acquisitions at the south end of the development zone, are an indication that a great deal of planning is going into the evolving effort, said Bob Staedler, a principal executive with Silicon Valley Synergy, a land use, development and planning consultant.

“All the activity shows this is a serious effort and that people at Google and Trammell Crow are master planning this in a thoughtful way,” Staedler said Thursday.”

The public-private partnership that appears to be emerging between the city of San Jose and Google might be the catalyst that’s required for rapid and effective development of the west side of downtown San Jose, Staedler said.

“This is what the city has been needing for some time, to have someone look at the big picture, have a master plan, and to start to acquire the properties that are necessary,” Staedler said. “The city can help where it can, but hte private sector can simply move faster than the public sector.”

Wow thanks for the photo updates! May I have your permission to post these photos and credit you on a different San Jose Development thread? If you would rather do it then that's fine too!
