Silvery Towers Tops Out in San Jose

Located on the southwest corner of W. St. James and N. San Pedro in downtown San Jose, the high-rise towers will be two of the city’s tallest buildings when complete. The development sits on the 1.91acre lot one block east of CA87 behind the statue of Thomas Fallon, an early California pioneer and the 10th Mayor of San Jose. The east and west towers stand 22 and 20 stories respectively and sit atop of five parking levels, three of which are below grade. A two-story retail pavilion south of the towers acts as a visual extension of the downtown San Pedro Square Market and entertainment district. The buildings feature cast-in-place, post-tension decks with the east and west corner columns cast five degrees out of plumb. The “leaning” columns combine with meandering floor edges to lend a faceted appearance to the glass facade. The development covers a total of 1,105,716gsf and features 640 residential units and 656 parking stalls. Working with Developer/General Contractor Full Power Construction Inc. and designers C2K Architecture and MKA Structural Engineers, the development is schedule to open March 2019.
