A recent site visit by YIMBY has shown that Adobe North Tower’s facade has been fully installed in a highly-visible location for pedestrians coming from Diridon Station or drivers along Highway 87. The 18-story structure at 333 West San Fernando Street is the newest tower in Adobe’s downtown San Jose campus. Gensler is the project architect.
The 18-story building contains 1.3 million square feet, with 690,330 square feet for R&D offices, approximately 2,700 square feet of retail, and 563,000 square feet for the on-site parking of 1,181 vehicles and 147 bicycles. The parking spans two basement levels and six above-ground floors. According to Devcon, the top floor includes an “18th executive floor” with “secure spaces for executives’ safety and a customer experience center with food service, dining and special AV graphics display areas.”
The project is located around several transit options, including VTA light rail and buses and the San Jose Diridon train station, connecting Santa Clara County with the San Francisco Peninsula via Caltrain. The project will also be within walking distance of the new San Jose BART station that is scheduled to open in 2030.
As of our visit to San Jose last week, construction has not yet started for the pedestrian bridge connecting Adobe North Tower with the existing three towers across John P. McEnery Park. Devcon Construction is the project’s general contractor.
Employees will find access to the 56,250 square feet of open space across the first, seventh, ninth, and top floors. Once complete, the building will be all-electric, enabling the firm the tap into San Jose’s renewable-powered energy grid.
