Construction financing for the eight-story hotel at 495 West San Carlos Street by Diridon Station in San Jose has been secured. The project will open a 176-room Marriott TowneSuites Hotel by the Google Downtown West mixed-use plan. Urban Catalyst, the project developer, has shared with YIMBY that they expect to start demolition during the next couple of weeks.
New renderings have been revealed for the two mixed-use towers and future office for Caltrain. The project will rise on the surface parking adjacent to San Jose’s Diridon Station. The public plaza and retail at the base would become a welcoming gateway for the future Google-led Downtown West masterplan. Perkins&Will is the project architect.
Urban Catalyst and partner Thang Do have purchased 60 Stockton Avenue, the second and final parcel for Apollo in San Jose. The Apollo will rise 19 stories from 1.12 acres next to the SAP Center and San Jose Diridon Station. Once complete, it will add 472 new homes by mass transit and the core of Google’s Downtown West masterplan.
Caltrain has published new renderings for a proposed two-tower office project across from Diridon Station. The north and south towers will rise with over a million square feet of office space between a new pedestrian plaza, establishing the project as a gateway to Downtown West and San Jose. Caltrain is the property owner.
The Victorian-era home to Poor House Bistro has been moved from 91 South Autumn Street to 317 West St. John Street in Little Italy, San Jose. The relocation comes ahead of Downtown West, Google’s massive plans to redevelop the low-density area surrounding Diridon Station with high-density offices, housing, and retail. Project site maps indicate 91 South Autumn Street will be replaced with an office building.
