Plans for a new cricket stadium at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds have been announced by Major League Cricket and Santa Clara County. The popular sport has been gaining traction in the Bay Area, with the MLC crediting the growing South Asian community as a catalyst for construction in San Jose. HKS will be the project architect, charged with designing a state-of-the-art arena to seat up to 15,000 fans.
New aerial photographs show construction is wrapping up for 24th and Harrison, the 18-story mixed-use development at 277 27th Street in Northgate-Waverly. The project is the largest new addition to the neighborhood just north of the downtown core, and its scale reflects Oakland’s grand appetite for new housing. Holland Partner Group is responsible for the development.
The eleventh tallest skyscraper in the Bay Area planned or built is Related Companies The Avery, a 618-foot tall residential tower at 450 Folsom Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The project is located on Block 8 of the Transbay development district and inside the highly redeveloped East Cut neighborhood. Rem Koolhaas’ Office of Metropolitan Architecture is responsible for the tapered design.
Since SFYIMBY’s last site visit in late January, facade installation has topped out with interior work underway on 277 27th Street in Northgate-Waverly, just north of downtown Oakland. Referred to as 24th and Harrison, the apartment building will bring 405 apartments and 65,000 square feet of ground-level retail. Holland Partner Group is responsible for the development.
A mixed-use project slated for development at 3896 Stevens Creek Boulevard in West Vally, San Jose, will break ground this year. The project proposal includes Class A office space, retail space on the ground floor, and a three-story fitness-wellness center. HKS Architects is managing the design concepts and construction. Dallas-based real estate firm Cypress Equities and Minnesota-based Life Time Fitness are the project developers. Real estate firm CBRE Group is handling leasing on the project.
