Marshall Squares - May 13, 2017









They're actually building something now, instead of just digging out for the foundation.

It's very quick without digging a big hole, you see!

The project to replace the Greyhound station has been approved.

Massive high-rise project eyed for downtown San Jose's Greyhound site

San Jose's Greyhound bus terminal could sprout two residential towers totaling more than 700 units in what would be the largest project by unit count ever proposed for the central business district.
KT Urban, downtown's most prodigious high-rise developer, last week turned in an early concept to the San Jose Planning Department for the roughly 1.6-acre site at 70 S. Almaden Ave., according to city records. The application is preliminary, meaning it is meant merely to gather feedback from staff. But it provides the first public glimpse at what KT envisions for the location, and is a clear signal that the redevelopment of the parcel is moving forward, five months after I first reported that KT was in contract to buy the land from Greyhound.

...

The KT Urban concept would see a 24-story and a 23-story tower resting on three levels of underground parking. The plans show multiple potential orientations for the buildings, including east/west and north/south layouts, and it's unclear which direction the developer will be going. One tower would include 294 units, while the other would have 414. The buildings could reach 241 and 251 feet tall.

...

Hey Cardinal,

Can you, or anyone, confirm the report from cranewatch below? Are there really cranes at all those sites?

The answer is no. There are limited number of construction cranes in comparison to all those proposals. 2 cranes at Silvery Towers, one at Marshall Squares, and 1 at Station Village, at least downtown, I don't track other construction sites that well.

Two residential high-rises could soon be headed to downtown San Jose. The city approved permits and environmental studies for a residential project at 70 South Almaden Ave., formerly a Greyhound Lines station, the Mercury News reports. KT Urban plans to build 23-story and 24-story towers with 708 condo units and 14K SF of retail. Construction is expected to begin July 2018 and be completed by 2020 to receive fee reductions under San Jose’s Downtown High-Rise Incentive Program. No new high-rise projects have broken ground in downtown since 2015. The project is expected to generate $15M in city revenue for parks, $22M for affordable housing programs and up to $3M in property taxes.

New proposed 18-story building in Downtown San Jose

Quote:
New permit of a 18 story building, north of downtown San Jose with 304 residential units and 10,146 square feet of retail on a 0.77 gross acre site (199 Bassett Street). The project includes four levels of underground parking (1 space per unit), 84 bike spaces, a fitness room, and an outdoor terrace with a pool and hot tub. Unit sizes include studios, one bedrooms, and two bedrooms.

The site is sandwiched between Highway 87 and Coleman Avenue, and is located in the northernmost part of downtown. The proposed tower will be somewhat isolated until the vacant land between San Pedro Market and the site is developed; although, this land should not be vacant for long. In the interim, the applicant will need to work on addressing connectivity issues with the rest of downtown so that the residents are not intimidated by or uninterested in walking and biking in the area.

If approved, the proposed tower will be a great addition to the downtown area, as more downtown residents will increase the viability for downtown amenities, retail, and restaurants. Many potential commercial tenants state that the current downtown residential density is too low for them to justify moving into a vacant commercial space, so every new project helps alleviate this concern.

Trammel Crow is buying up more land even closer to Diridon potentially for another large office development adjacent to the now approved #Diridon. Which has yet to break ground.

San Jose downtown property buyers widen footprint, spend $124 million

SAN JOSE — Commercial real estate investors who are grabbing properties near the Diridon Station in downtown San Jose are expanding their footprint with a property purchase north of the SAP Center.

The newest purchase, a warehouse industrial building on Cinnabar Street, was sold for $51.5 million and will give developer Trammell Crow its first beachhead north of the SAP sports and entertainment complex

“Diridon Station will be an extraordinary opportunity for our city,” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said Thursday during a presentation to an Economic Summit at San Jose State. “This is an enormous development opportunity. Millions of square feet of office and retail space could be built there.”

Trammell Crow and Rhyolite Enterprises have spent $124 million in a downtown shopping spree expected to revitalize that section of the city’s urban core.

Some of the facade work is done, I have mixed feelings about the stuff that is done.

New AC Hotel on Stevens Creek

Quote:
The AC Hotel is expanding their San José footprint! On May 18th, AC Hotel representatives submitted a Site Development Permit for a 6-story, 132-room hotel at 5969 Stevens Creek Boulevard. The site currently has a Shell gas station and an auto repair shop, and is located on the San José side of the border between Cupertino and San José. The hotel proposal is most likely moving forward in order to capitalize on business from the new Apple campus, located less than a mile north of the site.

Google downtown expansion?

Looks like the Google rumors had some substance to them:

San Jose confirms talks with Google for downtown site

Trammell Crow’s Diridon Station development near the San Jose transit station of the same name.

The development is set to add about 1 million square feet of office space and hundreds of apartments at the site, but Trammell Crow has also been expanding its footprint by picking up parcels surrounding the already entitled project, indicating that the developer may be looking to expand what is already one of San Jose’s largest development projects.

If the numbers are to be believed, and I do question how real that is, versus hyped, 6M sqft is a lot to add, downtown has somewhere in the 8M-10M range depending on what you count as downtown, so it is either a 60 or 75% increase in office space. That is huge.

I also think it would help sell the BART plan for funding, as we need lots more riders to get the extension to not be a massive subsidy.
