Foundation work is nearly complete, with concrete reaching ground level for the North Building at Platform 16 in Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County. With Devcon nearly through the slowest phase of construction, the project will soon start to materialize the 1.1 million square feet of new office space by the city’s regional transit hub, Diridon Station. The development is a joint venture with Boston Properties, TMG Partners, and Valley Oak Partners.
It has been nine months since the President of Boston Properties, Douglas Linde, announced his intention to resume construction at Platform 16 in San Jose, Santa Clara County. Work has indeed started this year, and a live camera linked on the firm’s website shows excavation work is underway for the north building at 375 Autumn Parkway. Devcon is the building’s general contractor.
Douglas Linde, president of Boston Properties, BXP, announced yesterday on a phone call that the firm is actively considering resuming the construction of Platform 16 in 2022, an office development at 441 West Julian Street, San Jose. The announcement came just as SFYIMBY spotted crew activity on the construction site that has been stalled since March of 2020. Platform 16 is a joint development with BXP, TMG Partners, and Valley Oak Partners. BXP maintains a 55% ownership of the project.
