CUPERTINO, CA – AUGUST 21, 2019 – With the Santa Clara City Council’s approval last month of Hunter Storm’s proposed Gateway Crossings project, a massive, mixed-use, transit-oriented development, and Verizon’s recent commitment to lease 643,000 square feet for a new technology hub at Coleman Highline, the stage is now set for Hunter Storm to fulfill its vision of a dynamic transit village next to the San Jose International Airport.
Gateway Crossings will provide 1,565 homes directly adjacent to Cupertino-based Hunter Properties’ new tech office campus, Coleman Highline, a project with 1.75M square feet that will support more than 8,000 employees. Two major tenants have already taken the majority of space in the office campus—Verizon Media recently announced it was taking 643,990 square feet for its Bay Area tech hub and Roku, Inc. leased 730,000 square feet last summer for its new corporate headquarters.
Straddling the border of the cities of San Jose and Santa Clara, the huge village will be located on Coleman Avenue and next to the Santa Clara Transit Center, currently served by Caltrain, Altamont Corridor Express (ACE), Valley Transit Authority (VTA), and the future site of a new BART station. In addition to residential, Gateway Crossings will feature a hotel with 225 rooms, two parks with 2.5 acres of public space, and 45,000 square feet of retail. Directly next to the project will be the Coleman Highline campus with an additional 7,500 square feet of retail, including a public market and another hotel with 175 rooms next to nearby Avaya Stadium.
“After many years of planning and working closely with the local community, we’re ecstatic that we’re finally able to bring these two projects to market in tandem and have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a convenient, transit-oriented, live-work community for thousands of people,” says Deke Hunter, Managing Partner and President of Hunter Properties. “These projects will allow employees the opportunity to work, shop, and play where they live, while the robust transit connections will make this a convenient destination for those from around the Bay Area and beyond.”
Coleman Highline campus will be built in phases, with Verizon co-developing its spaces. The Verizon tech hub will include a 2,250-square-foot welcome pavilion and over 45,000 square feet of workplace amenities such as a fitness center and cafeteria. The project is designed by Gensler, with a focus on creating dynamic social and communal spaces that inspire collaboration. Groundbreaking is planned to take place fall of 2019, with completion slated for 2021.
