Working in the South Bay: Home of 3.6 Million Sq. Ft. of New Construction

September 12, 2012

Lately we’ve been seeing quite a lot of activity south of us as San Jose has become a bustling hub of new construction. Helping to keep us busy, these projects (all in varying stages) have also all contributed to making the South Bay the strongest job market in the U.S. right now. Construction jobs in this area alone have increased 15% in 12 months.

To get a glimpse into what’s new and underway in San Jose, you can check out this slideshow of the top 5 projects (ranked by square footage); one of which we mentioned in a recent blog (link, when available): the BART Silicon Valley Berryessa Extension. The remaining 4 of the 5 are residential, adding to the hundreds of thousands of new homes expected in San Jose this fall.  Below are a few details on these expansive projects.

  1. Mosaic: 400,000 sq. ft. of new, luxury apartments in Silicon Valley
  2. Misora: Another luxury, rental community at Santana Row to open Fall 2013
  3. BART Extension: 568,000 sq. ft. to be added by 2018
  4. Evergreen Place: 87 single family homes and 16 large town homes
  5. Crescent Village Apartment Homes: 1.6 million sq. ft. complex with 1,750 units

With our birth and success in an economic downturn, our already-optimistic attitudes are increasing as we experience first-hand this boom in the Bay Area.
