A 25-story mixed-use tower proposed for a site near Santana Row could bring 330 condos and around 50k SF of commercial space to San Jose.
The tower, Volar (which means "to fly" in Spanish), has a shape inspired by falcon wings and will feature a circular, top-floor restaurant, putting it in sharp contrast to the two-story, 27k SF retail building that now sits on the site. Above and below are renderings of Volar from a couple of different angles.
Salvatore Caruso Design is behind the design, and Salvatore Caruso tells us the timing is right for the project, with Apple building a new 2.8M SF campus up the road in Cupertino and major corporations locating in Silicon Valley even as the area struggles with a housing shortage.
