SAN JOSE, California – December 21, 2015 – Construction has begun on a new 9,990 square foot, single-story stand-alone building at Princeton Plaza in San Jose. The new building is managed by Pan Cal Corporation, designed by Eaton Hall Architecture with Built with Principle serving as the general contractor.
The project will be built in the northwest corner of the existing parking lot of the 180,000 square foot Princeton Plaza at 1450 Kooser Road. The new building will incorporate many of the same features and finishes seen in the newly renovated shopping center, but with a slightly more contemporary look.
The project will include a redesign of the existing parking lot for improved access to the new building and existing buildings in the shopping center, both for pedestrians and vehicles. The project is expected to be complete in May, 2016.
“The last building was added to Princeton Plaza nearly 30 years ago, so we are very excited about this project,” said Benjamin Chui, Vice President, Pan Cal Corporation, the shopping center’s management firm. “The new building will enable us to bring even more services to the immediate neighborhood and beyond.”
“We are excited to work with Pan Cal on this new project at Princeton Plaza,” said Frank Hagaman, CEO and President of Built with Principle. “We look forward to delivering a quality building on time and on budget that will add further value to Princeton Plaza.”
