Nathan Donato-Weinstein from the Business Journal nabbed what will likely be the largest development scoop of the year. 10 freakin towers proposed on North First Street!!! The project spans 20 acres at First Street and Brokaw which consists of some empty land and the Bay 101 casino. It would likely be built in two phases, Phase 1 on the area currently vacant with Phase 2 coming in after the casino moves to their new home closer to M8trix.
The buildings would each be about seven stories--which is tall for your typical tech campus, think Brocade in the @First area. Total square footage would clock in at a jaw-dropping 2,025,350 SQFT. In terms of sheer size of an office project, this would come second only to the new Apple Campus in Cupertino. This dwarves all other planned office projects in the Bay Area, including expansion project by Samsung, Facebook, Linkedin and Google (their Bayview Campus).
No potential tenant has been named, but there is speculation that it will be a huge tech company like Microsoft, Amazon, or Apple.
Amenities will include 7,103 spaces of mostly underground parking (Lightrail is also across the street), an underground pool, a soccer field, and courts for basketball, racquetball, and squash. Check out photos of the modern curved glass buildings below! I really, really hope this goes through.
