The project was first proposed two years ago with a secret tenant and received city approval last year. The massive office complex will still have the same curved glass-wall design, but the buildings will be much shorter. Instead of rising eight stories, most buildings will only be four stories and the parking will be in three giant structures along 101 as opposed to being underground. It is still an epic amount of premium office space that will bring thousands of new jobs (and tax dollars) to San Jose.
The developer is expected to pull building permits by the end of this year, with tenant occupancy in 2017. If this moves forward, it also means that Bay 101 will need to be moved--likely across the street to the San Jose Airport Garden Hotel property.
