Willow Glen Town Square
New mixed-use building provides neighborhood identity along with retail and offices read more...
This addition to the Willow Glen neighborhood in San Jose creates a gateway to the local business district. The mixed-use building welcomes people to the area with a central, richly landscaped plaza and stone-clad tower surrounded by ground-level restaurants and shops with offices above. The building fits into the neighborhood fabric by wrapping around the historic building on the site, referencing the Spanish-style buildings along Lincoln Street, and providing numerous pedestrian-oriented amenities.
The building was designed with permanence and sustainability in mind and includes small offices for local residents, bike racks, showers, operable windows, highly efficient water usage, and priority parking for fuel efficient vehicles. The building received a LEED Gold rating.
