Pearl Gateway Development LLC has filed permits to construct a four-story data center building at 2905 Stender Way. The application follows the demolition permits filed last Friday. While Pearl Gateway is listed as the developers, the property owner is CoreSite Real Estate. The site is in a heavily industrialized portion of Santa Clara.
Corgan, an international architecture firm, is responsible for the design. The renderings reveal the facade as primarily clad with paneling and slivers of curtain wall glass. The main feature of the building is the southeastern corner. The dark blue framing and curtain wall glass will be overlooking visitors as they drive into the planned parking lot.
The one hundred foot tall structure will bring 250,000 square feet of new space. Inside the building, there will be an interior substation, administrative office space, and loading docks, with an expected ten full-time staff on-site. The proposal hopes to help its area by including fewer parking spaces than required, applying for 26 spots rather than 63.
Demolition permits are being processed for the existing 1-story structure and its surrounding parking lots.
The project will join the companies’ expansive footprint along Stender Way, including another recently completed 54,000 square foot data center at 3035 Stender Way. And a similar project at 2972 Stender Way was constructed, adding roughly 100,00 square feet for $67 million.
According to the Santa Clara city government website, the project is pending review, although it seems likely to get approved.
