101 San Fernando
Location: San Jose, California. Upscale suburban downtown
Twenty years ago, San Jose was synonymous with sprawl. Today, as the unofficial capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose has emerged as a home base for the post-industrial economy. Its sprawl has undergone remarkable reurbanization. The region has now invested $2.3 billion in a light rail system, cultural facilities, public institutions, and, finally, large-scale downtown housing. 101 San Fernando is part of that effort.Read more at this project's website.
