Renderings of a new 27-story, 285 unit residential tower in downtown San Jose (most southern part of downtown). If built, this will become the tallest building in San Jose.

Quote:
The proposal requests approval for 285 residential units and about 5,200 square feet of ground-floor retail. It would also include four levels of underground parking.

Fort Bay Signature Project @ 4300 Stevens Creek Blvd.

Quote:
Revised Plans released in the January 11, 2018 DEIR for the above project shows that the two residential buildings will go from 7 stories to 8 stories and the number of units will increase to 582 units total for the 2 residential buildings from a previous total of approximately 500 residential units.

The office building shows an increase in capacity from approximately 244,000 sq.ft. to approximately 300,000 sq.ft.

The developer is aiming to complete the application process by the end of Q2. The project could potentially be approved as early as late 2017 or Q1 2018, with a phased construction period to begin in 2019.

It feels very boxy to me, no matter how they have tried to break it up. Would rather see it stair step taller and using the same facade breaks to mimic that on the other sides.

Im liking that cantelivered design on the Santana West project! Visually very pleasing to look at in a rendering, and I'm sure if built, will be even more visually engaging!

That is true! There were 3 theater domes before. Good thing we were able to save 1 of the domes but there still is some public outcry that we should keep all 3.

There has been a lot of news in San Jose/South Bay lately, which is very exciting. I truly believe this is due to Google's plans to moving to downtown.

Quote:
San Jose residential developers Tony Arreola and Mark Lazzarini filed for a site development permit Tuesday for twin 18-story residential towers downtown adjacent to the Guadalupe Freeway.

The envisioned project on 1.8 acres at 255 W. Julian St. would include 653 market rate units, about 10,000 square feet of ground level commercial space and underground parking for 654 vehicles, a few blocks from San Jose's San Pedro Square Market.

Arreola said the development could be apartments, condominiums or a mix. He said plans call for 125 studios, 282 one-bedroom units, 211 two-bedroom units and 35 three-bedroom units.

Each tower will have a swimming pool with one tower’s pool located on the roof. Amenities are to include a multipurpose room, exercise gym and pet play area.

^ Nice looking set of towers.

Along with Google's new campus and expansion of the Diridon station to include BART and HSR, DTSJ real estate values should explode. Even without these in place yet, just look at this price history vs its current listing price.

One thing that is interesting in the listing is only includes 1 parking spot. Almost everyone here seems to be act like guaranteed parking is a necessity, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is occupied by two working adults (San Jose is not a city where people by a pied-a-terre), and it doesn't look like it is affecting the price so badly.

Admittedly the parking garage under the building (open parking), has many open spaces, and demand is not so high, they can only get about $110/mo.

Downtown San Jose’s Google village takes major step forward with government property deals

SAN JOSE — Google’s village in downtown San Jose cleared a major hurdle on Wednesday with an agreement involving proposed prices for the sale of government-owned properties to a development venture led by the search titan.

“This is an important step forward. It is one step, but a vital step,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said Wednesday. “We are moving forward collaboratively with Google on this process.”

The combined proposed price for the property sales to Google: $67 million for nine parcels at six addresses in downtown San Jose, according to a city staff memo. The properties are all owned by a government agency that was created to unwind the assets and operations of the now-defunct San Jose Redevelopment Agency, which once owned the properties.

...
But the company has also bought some property out in the suburbs now:

Google grabs north San Jose properties amid major expansion

SAN JOSE — Google has swallowed three north San Jose properties in a major expansion of its areas of interest in the Bay Area, buying three industrial buildings in a business park being developed by Trammell Crow.

Mountain View-based Google paid $117.3 million on Tuesday for the buildings, Santa Clara County property records show.

The buildings are part of the Midpoint@237 business park. Together, the buildings, which are all new, total 563,000 square feet.

This transaction marks Google’s biggest foray into north San Jose. The business park is located just north of State Route 237 and is near the Alviso community.
The work in Diridon would be the first major push by a tech company to really move to an urban location with good transit in Silicon Valley. But then buying up in the suburbs near 237 feels more like "more of the same" for a company that has traditionally expanded in suburbs.

South 1st street projects: this is the sort of construction I suspect we're going to see a lot more of w SB827, very efficient wood frame/minimal excavation.

The second one is the prefab that was trucked in and placed using a crane?

I wonder if this will become a new way of doing construction to counteract the high costs.

Big City, Big Airport: How San Jose Can Have Both

day the area around San Jose’s Diridon Station is a 240-acre swath of surface parking and underutilized land, but within 10 years the rail station will offer unparalleled transit connections to the region and the state, including BART, Caltrain, high-speed rail and VTA light rail. The decisions that we make about what to do with the surrounding area will determine how successful the transit will be (i.e., how many riders use it). And the infrastructure, buildings, streets and public spaces developed there will outlast all of us.

This is the most important city-building opportunity San Jose will get for a long, long time. But unfortunately, Diridon Station and the area surrounding it face a unique challenge: the proximity of the Mineta San Jose International Airport and its flight paths limits how tall buildings in the area can be.
