While there are many skyscrapers in the planning pipeline for Downtown San Jose, one of these buildings is making a quick ascent. The Adobe North Tower at 333 West San Fernando Street is on pace to top out by the early half of 2021, with the reinforced concrete currently eight floors high and ten remainings. Adobe is the owner of the development, with Gensler in charge of the design.

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.
A preliminary review package has revealed plans for a dramatic rehabilitation of the iconic Bank of Italy Tower at 12 South 1st Street in Downtown San Jose. While the structure is currently actively operating as an office building, the ground level remains vacant. Plans include modern office space, outdoor terraces, retail, and a music venue. Design is by Bjarke Ingels Group and RMW Architecture, with Urban Community and Vancouver-based Westbank as developers.
New elevations reveal plans for a tower at 35 South Second Street, Downtown San Jose. The starchitect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is behind the design, which has a striking resemblance to a pair of trousers. The 289-foot tower will provide a large quantity of residential, office, and retail space around the corner from the future BART station and historic Bank of Italy Tower. Vancouver-based Westbank Corporation is developing the project.
Urban Catalyst is bringing their plan for a 169-unit residential care facility at 470 West San Carlos Street in Downtown San Jose to the city’s planning commission later today. The six-story structure will span 185,000 square feet, offering nursing assistance, communal dining, lounge areas, library, salon, and open space. City staff is recommending that the council conditionally approve the project.
