San Jose City Council approves Sobrato Organization office tower for downtown by Matthew Niksa Silicon Valley Business Journal Apr 14, 2021

The San Jose City Council on Tuesday night gave unanimous approval to an 18-story office tower that the Sobrato Organization wants to bring to a key corner in downtown San Jose.

The project, called Market Street Towers, would rise at the southern edge of Plaza de Cesar Chavez next to the historic Hotel Montgomery and across the street from the Westin San Jose.

But don't expect construction to begin immediately at the site, which is now a parking lot. The Mountain View-based Sobrato Organization, one of the region's most prominent developers, does not plan to start construction until it has a tenant on board.

Renderings have been shared along with a new planning document for a residential building at 375 South Baywood Avenue by Santana Row, San Jose. The Mitigated Negative Declaration document shows three low-density residences replaced by an 11-story condominium building as part of the Santana Row/Valley Fair Urban Village. The project developer is Cord Associates.

...

The structure will rise 120 feet above street level to create 79 apartments and 9,820 square feet of commercial space across the ground and second level of the building. Unit sizes will vary, with 34 one-bedroom units, 41 two-bedroom units, and four three-bedroom units. The residential lobby will be found along Hemlock Avenue, while commercial access will be created along with Hemlock, Baywood, and Redwood Avenue.

New Renderings For 600 South 1st Street, Downtown San Jose

BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON APRIL 28, 2021



New renderings have been released ahead of today’s hearing with the San Jose Planning Director for Garden Gate Tower at 600 South 1st Street in Downtown San Jose. The proposed high-rise will have 23 floors, adding 336 residential units to the San Jose housing market above four commercial retail spaces. The London-based project owner, Scape, is behind an addendum request for a shorter project with more units. Scape specializes in the design of student dormitories.

Google’s 80-acre megacampus will take over a chunk of San Jose

Google does not yet know the cost of the 10- to 30-year construction project

https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021...-neighborhood/

Google has gotten approval to build a "multi-billion dollar megacampus" in San Jose, California, just 10 miles away from the other giant campus the company is building in Mountain View. CNBC reports that city officials approved Google's "Downtown West" project on Tuesday night.


Santa Clara was overruled by the city council's unanimous vote. Concern about building heights is pretty much the cause of all the housing problems in Silicon Valley. As the world's biggest tech hub, the area could support giant skyscrapers, but local politics prevent them from being built. San Jose is the most populous city in the US with no buildings of 300 feet (91 m) or higher. The city's tallest building, "The 88," only has 23 floors.

what prevents them from being built in downtown San Jose are FAA requirements, since the incoming flight path to the airport passes overhead

San Jose City Council will vote on plans to rezone the site of the city's flea market and transform the area around the Berryessa BART station

The San Jose City Council is slated to vote Tuesday night on a controversial proposal that could radically reshape the area around the Berryessa BART station.

The City Council is considering whether to rezone the site of the 1960s-era San Jose Flea Market to allow for a significant increase in new development. It will also consider a plan to transform about 270 acres in and around the flea market site into an urban village.

...
The rezoning for the flea market is going up for a vote on Tuesday night. The plan is to zone up to 3.4M sqft of office, and 3400 residential units on about 60 acres of land directly adjacent to the new Berryessa BART station. The plan currently faces heavy opposition from the current flea market vendors, so I don't think it is likely to pass, but we will see after the vote.

I think this kind of development is what Silicon Valley needs, rather than the large new office parks in Sunnyvale and Santa Clara that are miles away from any transit, a development adjacent to BART will allow people to take BART (or the 500 bus) directly to the office and be just a short walk from the office once you get there. With the last mile problem being a huge issue right now the current thinking of just building apartments close to BART is unlikely to address the issue. Of course once BART goes to downtown and Diridon a lot more office space could be dedicated there, demand side though still a question besides the large Google interest on the latter. So while the area may get zoned for office, it will remain to be seen if any tech company would actually want to be in that part of North San Jose.
