County of Santa Clara Recruiting Developers
Submitted By Gwendolyn Mitchell/Lingxia Meng
The County of Santa Clara is recruiting developers to partner in the redevelopment of a 55-acre County-owned property that includes the 10-acre former City of San Jose City Hall property. Qualified developers are asked to submit their Statement of Qualification no later than 3 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2013.
The Civic Center Development project will include both County government facilities and private sector developments. At completion, the development could include 600,000-1,175,000 square-foot governmental office space for operations, administration, judicial and correctional uses. The principal private sector development opportunities are in the area bounded by North First Street, West Mission Street, North San Pedro Street, and West Younger Avenue, where the County Government Center, former San Jose City Hall, and a County Health Building are currently located. The City of San Jose is willing to consider rezoning for the best use of the property.
