Earlier this month, Westbank released their master vision for five skyline-defining developments across downtown San Jose. Today, we highlight The Orchard, producing two towers at 300 South 1st Street and the third tower at 409 South 2nd Street, called The Orchard Workspace and The Orchard Residential. The Orchard yields over two million square feet combined, producing a campus of offices, housing, retail, and restaurants.
Development permits have been filed for a new mixed-use building at 409 South Second Street in Downtown San Jose. The proposal includes a housing tower with rooftop amenities that may consist of an infinity pool, all set to sprout at the site of the old Bo Town restaurant in downtown San Jose. BoTown Residential is a 29-story housing high-rise in downtown San Jose with ground-floor retail at 409 and 425 S. Second Street. Concept and design are by James K.M. Cheng Architects and Steinberg Hart.
Renderings have been released, showing the futuristic design planned for the Career Education Complex at San Jose City College, San Jose. These new designs come from Steinberg Hart, an international architecture firm with roots in San Jose extending back to the 1950s. Once complete, it will offer facilities for career education courses and a welcoming environment for the rest of the campus. The spaceship-like complex is expected to cost $112 million for completion.
San Jose’s tallest tower is looking a lot more like it’s renderings now. MIRO topped out in late July, with its facade closing in on the 28th floor for both towers. The project is addressed at 167 East Santa Clara Street, between 4th and 5th street, and directly across from the San Jose City Hall’s plaza. Once complete, the towers will add over a million square feet of new space to the city, predominantly residential with some retail and commercial space.
