SAN JOSE — A choice site in downtown San Jose that’s close to Google’s proposed transit village is up for sale and might accommodate a tower that could soar 300 feet skyward, the sellers said Monday.
The property, located on Delmas Avenue between Park Avenue and West San Carlos Street, is the result of an assembly of a dozen properties that have coalesced into a single large development site near the Diridon train station.
Executives from Integrated Capital Management, The Helen James Company and Newmark Knight Frank, a commercial real estate firm, are attempting to find a buyer for the site, which is near Google’s proposed transit-oriented community, several train lines and freeway ramps for State Route 87 and Interstate 280.
“The 2.2-acre site is well positioned to be an influential and transformative part of the continued build out of the Diridon Station Area,” said Dominic Boitano, senior project manager for property owner Park Delmas Investors, an affiliate of Robson Homes.
Mountain View-based Google has proposed a transit village of office buildings, homes, shops and restaurants where 25,000 people could work, including 15,000 to 20,000 of the search giant’s employees.
“Google has already announced its intentions to grow here, and the City recently took actions to raise building height limits, opening up a lot of possibilities,” Boitano said.
