Last time since SF YIMBY’s update, the redevelopment project has been approved for construction at 550 East Brokaw Road in North San Jose, Santa Clara County. The project proposal includes the development of seven buildings offering almost two million square feet of office space and a public park. The site former housed Fry’s Electronics, a national big-box store selling electronics that dramatically closed all locations in February of 2021. Demolition will be required for the existing structure.
Caracol Property Owner LLC is listed as the property owner. Bay West Development is responsible for the proposal, with architectural designs by Gensler.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 19.7 acres. The project will create seven office buildings and two parking structures spanning a total of 3.7 million square feet with 1.9 million square feet of offices and 1.6 million square feet for parking for 5,385 cars. Terraces spread across the project will total 84,750 square feet and additional bicycle parking for 410 bicycles. Each office building will rise eight floors to approximately 90-100 feet above street level. The structures will be asymmetrically aligned, cloistering around a landscaped pathway with shading and seating. The public space will be improved with landscaped pathways.
The design is heavily focused on landscaping, with the new buildings clad in curtain-wall and solid panels. Facade materials include metal, tinted concrete, and frosted glass. Renderings show the white panels, though the design is still at a concept stage and could be subject to change.
The Guzzardo Partnership is responsible for landscape architecture. CBG is consulting on civil engineering, DCI on structural engineering, and ACIES on MEP engineering.
Construction will be divided across four phases to last 23 months each, or 92 months in total. Completion is expected by June of 2031.
