Demolition permits have been filed for a portion of CityView Mega development in downtown San Jose. The project proposal includes the development of a tech office campus at 170 Park Center Plaza, featuring retail and office space. Plans call for the demolition of existing buildings and the removal of twenty trees.
Jay Paul Company is the project developer. Gensler is responsible for the design concepts and construction.
The project site spans 8.1 acres, offering 3.8 million square feet of rentable space, and six nineteen-story office towers. CityView brings together the bustle of a high-performing urban environment and the privacy of suburban areas. CityView’s recreation space, SkyParks, provides outdoor rooftop terraces spanning an area of 85,000 square feet will be designed. The development will offer an 80,000 square-foot world-class fitness facility.
Plans reveal one-of-a-kind double-story interconnected bridges and expansive floor plates with a variety of rich amenities in almost two acres of space.
The proposed design is LEED Gold certified, and the developers are taking measures to reduce site carbon emission, water, and HVAC heat rejection. In addition, the design and development of CityView prioritize the health and well-being of building occupants by achieving Fitwel certification.
The property site sits within walking distance to future Bart stations, existing Lightrail, and San Jose’s downtown residential housing opportunities.
The construction is estimated to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2024.
