San Jose-based Bayview Development Group announced today the groundbreaking of MIRO, San Jose’s newest luxury high-rise residential apartment community. Prominently located across from city hall along East Santa Clara Street, MIRO’s two captivating towers will be home to more than 600 residences and 20,000 square feet of retail and commercial space.
“We recognize the renaissance occurring in downtown San Jose and are excited to be part of the growing and dynamic mix of housing and jobs with entertainment venues and cultural, government and educational institutions in the area,” said Ted McMahon, Vice President of Finance and Development for Bayview Development Group. “We look forward to breaking ground, the topping off party and moving new residents into MIRO and downtown San Jose,” he added.
Designed by Steinberg, the iconic towers will introduce a new level of high-rise live-work- play living in the vibrant downtown. To be completed in 2020, the luxury residences will be available in a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts, including 16 penthouses. Residents will have access to over 50,000 square feet of thoughtfully curated top-of-the-line amenities, including a rooftop pool, concierge services, fitness, spa facilities, pet facilities, fire pits and rooftop lounges boasting unapparelled views of the city’s skyline.
“MIRO sets a new standard for luxury residential living while helping to create a vibrant, engaging community through its balance of residential, commercial, and retail offerings,” said MIRO architect, Rob Steinberg, FAIA, Chairman of San Jose-based Steinberg. “Our firm was founded in this city and we have been engaged in the community for many years. It’s an exciting time for downtown San Jose, and we’re honored to be able to contribute to defining our city skyline through architecture that elevates the design dialogue in San Jose.”
