Update On Community Engagement Plan For Proposed Google Development At Diridon Station
On June 20, 2017, the City Council adopted a resolution authorizing the City Manager to negotiate and execute an Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA) with Google for the acquisition of properties in the Diridon Station Area owned by the City of San Jose (7 parcels comprising 2 main sites) and properties owned by the Successor Agency to the Redevelopment Agency(SARA)(9 parcels comprising 5 main sites).
The June ENA action marked the first step in a multi-step, multi-year process leading to the design and approval of a potential transit-oriented, mixed-use, master-planned Google development near Diridon Station (see attachment: Land Sale and Development Approval Process). The entire planning process is estimated to take at least three to four years. Construction will occur over a period of years, with a significant number of buildings constructed after the construction for BART and High-Speed Rail has concluded, around 2026- 2027.
