Today’s headline story is a project review of one of the more substantial urban developments in the Bay Area. KT Urban plans to build a 1.8 million square foot office building at 280 Woz Way in downtown San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley. The project will bring two 297-foot conjoined towers, replacing a handful of single-family houses and extending the city’s burgeoning skyline further south.
Santa Clara County Superior Court has upheld approval for KT Urban to build the 19-story Moxy Hotel at 8 Almaden Boulevard in downtown San Jose. The development will add 272 new hotel rooms with retail to the urban core of Silicon Valley, packing inside the high-rise. The 225-foot tower will yield 146,282 square feet, with a Floor Area Ratio of 16.7. Guest rooms will occupy floors three to eighteen, while the ground level includes an open lounge and a restaurant with a bar. Guests and visitors alike will also have access to a bar on the 19th floor with skyline views.
