The proposed project involves the design of three tower structures connecting a pedestrian bridge to help provide commuters, bicyclists, and pedestrians access to the east and west sides of the Santa Clara Caltrain rail system. Since the new San Jose Earthquakes stadium is currently being constructed on the east side of the tracks adjacent to Coleman Avenue, high business potential for a possible multi-use retail development exists. In addition to the three towers, three commercial structures will be designed in order to satisfy the need for a retail development. This project will serve as an attraction that will help attract commuters, travelers, and soccer fans. The combined development of the towers and the commercial structures will also allow commuters to access the San Jose Airport.
