  1. It’s a blessing and a curse for downtown San Jose that the airport is so near as to limit the height of tower construction.

  2. Quite the change from the dilapidated single-story house that’s there now.

    Just curious: is there any parking? It doesn’t look like there’s any significant amount above ground, and the lot seems small enough that underground parking would be limited, I’d think…
