Housing towers in Downtown San Jose land huge financing package
Deal points to confidence in towers and downtown San Jose amid Google expansion



By GEORGE AVALOS | gavalos@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: July 13, 2022 at 5:30 a.m.

SAN JOSE — Miro, a two-tower housing complex in downtown San Jose, has landed a big financing package that points to confidence in the landmark project as well as the city’s urban core.

The residential highrises, located on East Santa Clara Street between North Fourth Street and North Fifth Street across from San Jose City Hall, have received a long-term refinance loan of $345 million, according to JLL, a commercial real estate firm that arranged the transaction.

Bayview Development Group is the principal developer of the 28-story project, which consists of a pair of towers with a combined total of 630 units. The mixed-use development also features ground-floor retail consisting of an Italian restaurant and a Starbucks coffee shop.

Pacific Life Insurance Co., based in the Orange County city of Newport Beach, provided the $345 million in permanent financing that also paid off a construction loan on the project.

...



The development that’s blossoming in downtown San Jose is somewhat impeded by a sluggish recuperation from coronavirus spawned-economic woes.

Despite these uncertainties and obstacles, several players are preparing or have launched an array of projects.

“There’s a lot of great stuff going on in downtown San Jose,” McMahon said. “A lot of good things are coming.”

Among the projects that are underway or in the works in downtown San Jose:

— Google is edging closer to starting Downtown West near the Diridon train station, a mixed-use neighborhood where the search giant may employ up to 25,000 people.

— Adobe is completing a new office tower to enable the tech titan to greatly expand its downtown headquarters presence.

— Jay Paul Co. is completing an office highrise at 200 Park Ave.

— an alliance of developers Westbank and the Gary Dillabough- and Jeff Arrillaga-led Urban Community is planning several projects including a green office tower at 180 S. Market St. where people will be able to work in a garden.

— Urban Catalyst is pushing ahead with several projects, including a revamp of an old movie theater.

Plus, the corner of North Fourth Street and East Santa Clara Street could see the addition of a residential tower and office tower that are the components of a new Urban Catalyst development called Icon/Echo; and a Bayview Development mixed-use office and retail project at East Santa Clara and South Fourth Street called Suzaco. These new projects could help bolster Miro.

New Renderings Revealed For Berryessa BART Transit Village In San Jose

New renderings have been revealed for Market Park, part of the expansive Berryessa BART Transit Village Development proposed for 1590 Berryessa Road in San Jose, Santa Clara County. Plans for the Market Park to occupy the Flea Market Southside District would add millions of square feet of office space and over three thousand homes on 60 acres next to mass transit. The Bumb family, the current property owner and founder of the Flea Market, is responsible for the application.



...
According to the rendering the tallest building would be about 200 feet tall making it the tallest outside downtown if this ever gets off the ground.

^ Nice project. Some much needed dense mixed use residential/office transit oriented development on that side of SJ. That's an absurd amount of parking though considering it's right at the Berryessa station. Hopefully they keep it down at the lower end of the 6,524 to 14,250 projected parking space range.

Excavation Progress At Platform 16, Downtown San Jose



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:00 AM ON JULY 28, 2022

It has been nine months since the President of Boston Properties, Douglas Linde, announced his intention to resume construction at Platform 16 in San Jose, Santa Clara County. Work has indeed started this year, and a live camera linked on the firm’s website shows excavation work is underway for the north building at 375 Autumn Parkway. Devcon is the building’s general contractor.

Platform 16 is a joint development with BXP, TMG Partners, and Valley Oak Partners. BXP maintains a 55% ownership of the project. Speaking with YIMBY, Senior Vice President at CBRE Sherman Chan confirmed that shell completion for 375 Autumn Park is expected by the first quarter of 2025, with timing for the other two buildings to be determined.

The 5.4-acre plot of land by the Bay Area’s largest multimodal transit hub will create 1.1 million square feet of new rentable office space. A three-story below-grade garage will offer parking for 1,746 vehicles, including 140 CalGreen spots for carpooling, vans, and electric vehicles. Bicycle parking will be offered at ground level in each building.

The project’s overall floor area is spread across three buildings. Crews have started work on the north building, located at 375 Autumn Parkway, and to contain 390,000 square feet. The central addition will be the largest, addressed at 325 Autumn Parkway, and to create 530,000 square feet of rentable open space. Lastly, the south building at 455 West Julian Street will offer 170,000 square feet.

...

The property is located west of the Guadalupe River, a few blocks north of the SAP Center and Diridon Station. Diridon Station is already connected with Amtrack, Caltrain, Capitol Corridor, Greyhound, and VTA light rail. BART is expecting to open up a new train line connecting Diridon to the rest of its regional network by the 2030s.

Another plan in the works by Platform 16 is Downtown West, Google’s ambitious redevelopment masterplan centered around Diridon Station. Developed in partnership with Lendlease, Downtown West will span 80 acres with 7.3 million square feet of offices, half roughly 4,000 homes of which 800 will be affordable, hotel rooms, 15 acres of parkland, and half a million square feet for retail or cultural tenants.

Google makes headway to resolve lawsuit over downtown San Jose village
Legal settlement is sought to clear path to launch construction of transit-oriented neighborhood

By GEORGE AVALOS | gavalos@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: August 10, 2022 at 7:13 a.m. | UPDATED: August 10, 2022 at 7:33 a.m.

SAN JOSE — Google is making progress in efforts to settle land transfers for downtown San Jose parcels dating back to the mid-19th Century that reside within the footprint of the tech titan’s transit village, court papers show.

A legal battle had erupted that pitted Google and the city of San Jose against a group of individuals to determine the ownership of remnants of small land parcels near an old bakery building on the western edges of downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County court documents show.

The search giant and San Jose filed a lawsuit in April 2022 to pursue a county court ruling that definitively awards Google and the city clear and unquestioned ownership of the remnants of four small parcels, which are near the corner of South Montgomery Street and Park Avenue.

But in May 2022, Peter Adams, a possible descendant of one of the 19th-Century owners of the small properties, countersued Google and the city to attempt to convince the court that he was the legal owner of a parcel remnant in downtown San Jose.

On July 22, however, Adams filed a motion to dismiss his own lawsuit against Google and the city. This means that Adams for now has scuttled his efforts to seek a court ruling that he owns one or more of the parcels.

The legal process at the heart of these court cases is formally known as ‘quieting’ the title for the parcels that are involved. Google and the city seek to ensure that the parcel remnants are all transferred by court order to the tech company and the municipality.

“We’re working with the city of San Jose on a land transfer process,” a Google spokesperson told this news organization in June in connection with the outset of the quiet title litigation.

The legal maneuvers and the clear title to the properties must be settled before substantial development of the Google village, which is known as Downtown West, can proceed.

...

In February 2022, Google offered Adams $5000, court papers show, as a “courtesy fee” if Adams filed a quitclaim deed to definitely show that Adams had no ownership rights to any of the parcel remnants.
Google hopes to begin construction by no later than sometime in early 2023 on infrastructure improvements as a precursor to the actual development of the transit village. The new neighborhood is viewed as a game-changing development for San Jose, which means the settlement of the land claims is a crucial preliminary step.

The move to settle the litigation is a hopeful sign for the downtown San Jose Google village, said Bob Staedler, principal executive with Silicon Valley Synergy, a land-use consultancy.

“This demonstrates that the Downtown West project is moving along as planned without any significant delays,” Staedler said.

Detailed Renderings For Caltrain Towers At Diridon Station, San Jose



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:00 AM ON AUGUST 24, 2022

New renderings have been revealed for the two mixed-use towers and future office for Caltrain. The project will rise on the surface parking adjacent to San Jose’s Diridon Station. The public plaza and retail at the base would become a welcoming gateway for the future Google-led Downtown West masterplan. Perkins&Will is the project architect.

The new renderings show both towers will have a complex massing with setbacks and cantilevered extensions, all capped by tree-lined balconies. The ground levels will be wrapped with transparent curtainwall skin, flooding the interior retail with natural lighting.

The color palette will vary with wood-look panels, copper-toned metal panels, and green vertical shade louvers along the exterior.

The complex will create around 1.2 million square feet of office space with a capacity for as many as 6,000 employees on-site. The application is led by the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board. Construction is expected to last around 30 months from groundbreaking to completion. A timeline has not yet been established, though initial development plans indicate work could start as early as 2024.

The project is across from Diridon Station, one of Caltrain’s busiest stations after San Francisco and Palo Alto. Along with Caltrain, the transit hub has connections with VTA Light Rail, Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor, and Altamont Corridor Express. Construction is also expected sometime this decade to connect Diridon Station to BART as part of the Silicon Valley Expansion program.

Google revamps historic building in downtown San Jose transit village
Work is underway on historic building within footprint of Google's proposed neighborhood in San Jose



By GEORGE AVALOS | gavalos@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: September 20, 2022 at 10:15 a.m

SAN JOSE — Work is underway to revamp a historic building within the footprint of Google’s proposed transit-oriented village in downtown San Jose, an early sign the game-changing project is pushing ahead briskly.

The building is slated to be part of one of the gateways to Google’s mixed-use neighborhood, which is expected to sprout near the Diridon train station and SAP Center on the western edges of the downtown.

The revamp is underway at the historic San Jose Water Co. building at 374 W. Santa Clara St. in San Jose.

An annex to the building that was on site earlier this year is no longer present.

...

The renovation work in the water company building is an encouraging sign that suggests Google is pushing ahead steadily with its massive development efforts within the Downtown West footprint, in Staedler’s view.

“Google is humming right along with Downtown West,” Staedler said.

Groundbreaking For Futuristic San Jose City College Career Education Center In Evergreen, San Jose



BY: ANDREW NELSON 5:30 AM ON OCTOBER 6, 2022

The San Jose City College has broken ground on the Career Education Center facility, a flagship expansion for the campus in San Jose’s Evergreen neighborhood. Once complete, the building will provide a centralized destination for student programs, services, and community space. Steinberg Hart is responsible for the design.

The four-story complex will be a central location for the broader SJCC community, encouraging students to focus on career education courses. The space will be part of the school’s mission to educate future leaders in an aspirational environment with state-of-the-art facilities. According to the press release, this vision reflects “how community institutions view and implement career-focused academic programs, which are evolving to create a more holistic educational continuum that connects various disciplines as they continue to blend together.”

The four-story structure will yield around 90,000 square feet, as well as the currently under-way renovation of an existing 30,000 square feet structure located across the central plaza. The structure will enact highly sustainable technology to be net-zero-ready, assisting the college and district in goals to become carbon neutral.

Google downtown San Jose village launches this month with demolitions
"Dancing pig" sign is being rescued and relocated to San Jose history park

By GEORGE AVALOS | gavalos@bayareanewsgroup.com | Bay Area News Group
PUBLISHED: October 6, 2022 at 12:46 p.m.

SAN JOSE — In the most tangible sign to date of the coming transformation of downtown San Jose, this month Google will begin the first building demolitions ahead of the tech titan’s new urban village — but even as the community turns toward its future, a “dancing pig” that linked to the South Bay’s past will be preserved.

The Stephen’s Meat Products sign near the Diridon train station was relocated on Thursday and was being kept safe until it is re-lighted at San Jose’s History Park. Eventually, it will be preserved as a permanent part of Google’s neighborhood, called Downtown West.

The salvage and preservation of the familiar sign is a very visible move to mark the start of Google’s proposed mixed-use neighborhood. Even so, other crucial endeavors beginning this month will be the first major steps in the development.

Google sketched out a demolition timetable that begins in mid-October and ends fewer than four months later, sometime in January 2023.

...

The buildings that will be demolished have addresses of 140, 145 and 102 S. Montgomery St. and 327 Otterson St.

The properties slated to be bulldozed are known as the Sunlite Bakery Bread Depot, the former Patty’s Inn drinking establishment and an old Airgas store. A building next to the Airgas outlet is also headed for demolition.

In a further sign that Google will preserve some key components of the development, the company aims to use the Art Moderne-style entrance of the old bakery building somewhere in the transit village project.

The tech titan also will rescue other key historic elements in the Downtown West footprint, including parts of an old foundry near the SAP Center.

Google plans to break ground on Downtown West in 2023.
