From the Marin Independent Journal:
A big mixed-use development on the eastern side of downtown San Jose is headed for a possible makeover because the government agency slated to occupy the site might wind up at another location in the city.
The Santa Clara County Housing Authority has been working toward a dramatic redevelopment of a vacant lot on E. Santa Clara Street where the agency would be the anchor office tenant — but now it’s possible the government entity will establish its main offices elsewhere.
Regardless of the Housing Authority’s decision, a redevelopment of what is now a blighted, vacant parcel is deemed to be a major upgrade for the property.
“We are hoping our development will enliven the neighborhood,” said Katherine Harasz, executive director of the Santa Clara County Housing Authority. “It’s an area that’s been a grassy field for a little too long a time.”
