Construction is moving forward at 200 Park Avenue, one of San Jose’s biggest new office developments. Excavation appears to have bottomed out less than a year after its 2019 ground-breaking. Once complete, it will stand as the tallest office building in the city, and extension of San Jose’s downtown core.
A new multifamily affordable housing project has broken ground on Treasure Island, San Francisco. This one project, known as the Maceo May Apartments, will add just over a hundred new residential units, of which 65 are for veterans. The six-story structure is a modular construction, yielding 104,000 square feet across the 0.74-acre parcel. The building will be a mix of studios, one-bedrooms, and two bedrooms. The Chinatown Community Development Center and Swords of Plowshare, a Bay Area developer, will be developing the project jointly.
Permits have been filed for a residential expansion at 990 Geary Street in the Tenderloin, San Francisco. The building’s first floor will be refurbished to make way for seven new residential units, along with an interior renovation of the full structure. This will bring the unit count of the structure up from 60 apartments to 67.
This week, the biggest little permits include over sixty additional dwelling units, a 30,000 square foot new medical facility in Alameda, new monuments in Sacramento, and even a treehouse in Palo Alto. At this pace, over three thousand ADU’s would be produced within a year. Along with ADU’s, nineteen new single-family houses were applied for and thirty-four Tesla power walls across the counties. Perhaps the most surprising was a two-story additional dwelling unit in Palo Alto with an estimated construction price of nearly $1.4 million. If ever there was a point where an ADU became just another single-family house, this might be a contender.
Takara Bio USA has released renderings showing off their new vision for the two office buildings at 2560-70 Orchard Parkway in North San Jose. The Bio company hopes to develop a campus environment with enclosed courtyards taking over existing surface parking. Each building will have 64,500 square feet of space, making 129,000 square feet of space in total. Tamara paid $44.8 million in May for the properties. The company is a silicon-based component of a Japanese. Currently, they occupy 57,000 square feet of office space at 1290 Terra Bella Avenue in Mountain View.
