Swenson Reveals Proposal For The Guadalupe River Area


Swenson Builders just revealed their proposal to turn the Downtown stretch of the Guadalupe River into a 6.81 million SQFT mixed-use development. The 30-acre project would incorporate and expand existing parks on both sides of the Guadalupe River and even create a second river. The square footage breakdown would be 3.8 million SQFT for office space, 2 million SQFT of residential space (~2,400 units), 420,000 SQFT of retail in a 5-story terraced shopping center, and 590,000 SQFT of hotel space (~1,100 rooms). Bridges would zig-zag over the river(s) to easily get from one side to the other. If there was ever a proposal to rival the San Jose Google HQ, this would be it. One of the most interesting aspects of the proposal is to create a man-made river parallel to the original Guadalupe River. The purpose of this would be to allow for recreational water activities in Downtown San Jose such as kayaking, surfing, and stand-up boarding. Above the river would also be zip-lines, allowing for a fun adventure combining both a natural and urban backdrop.
