San Jose, CA
The 88 is the epicenter of San Jose’s push to invigorate its slumbering downtown. The tallest residential tower between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the project serves as the focal point of the Central Place development. It features much sought after luxury condominiums with concierge services, a lushly landscaped 5th floor courtyard, ground-floor retail, restaurants and new urban market, and six levels of parking. Just steps from the Third Street Light Rail, the project successfully transforms a bland, car-centric area into a walkable, transit-oriented hub that feels alive day and night. The 88 was awarded the Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal Mixed Use Project of the Year in 2006 and the Best Architecture/Design in 2008.
