March 2018 Downtown Dimension Highlights

Here are my notes from the latest edition of Downtown Dimension:
  • Even though the San Jose Redevelopment Agency has been shut down for years, the Successor Agency is still intertwined in several Downtown projects.
  • Twin 17-story residential towers are proposed at 255 W. Julian St. with 653 units, 10,254 SQFT of retail, and luxury amenities such as a rooftop pool.
  • The City Council has lowered parkland fees for highrise projects given fewer people on average live in each unit versus other types of multi-family housing. Highrises are defined as buildings 12 stories or higher.
  • Two new pieces of Burning Man artwork are being added to San Jose as part of the "Playa to Paseo" program. One will be placed in Plaze de Cesar Chavez while the other is on the paseo between the two Fairmont towers.
  • Several city streets are going to be resurfaced and sealed in Downtown San Jose, including portions of 3rd Street, 4th Street, Almaden Avenue, San Carlos, St. John, San Salvador, and Viola Street.
