Federal Realty Breaks Ground on Next Phase of Santana Row

Federal Realty Investment Trust commenced construction on the newest addition to San Jose’s Santana Row: One Santana West, a 360,000-square-foot office building and companion parking garages containing 1,750 parking spaces. The eight-story, highly-efficient workspace is located at Winchester Boulevard and Olin Avenue, near I-280.

Federal Realty’s Jan Sweetnam says, “Santana Row’s mixed-use live-work-play environment, coupled with its superb Silicon Valley location, offers a competitive advantage for recruiting. The Santana West office campus continues our vision of creating a thriving, walkable urban village.”

The modern architecture and HQ-quality office space features a state-of-the-art exposed interior concrete design with floorplates up to 54,000 square feet. The building will have 13-foot clear heights and smooth concrete ceilings, direct access to parking, expansive terraces on three floors, and a plaza for employees.

The building is the first phase of the up to one-million-square-foot Santana West development. One Santana West is expected to deliver in Q1 2021.

Connect Media is planning a Direct-to-Consumer event at Santana Row on September 26th. Please contact Sarah Quinn at email or 213.545.4068 for more information about this leading-edge retail event. Real estate owners will gain a better understanding of where the next wave of retail growth is coming from.
