Connect Bay Area is coming up May 17th. Here is where to get more information and register.
The San Jose City Council unanimously endorsed the San Jose Light Tower Corporation (SJLTC) to move forward with plans to design and construct an artistically-inspired and iconic structure in downtown San Jose. The original San Jose electric light tower was constructed in 1881, stood 237-feet tall and spanned the intersection of Santa Clara and Market Streets (pictured above).
While not seeking to rebuild the historic tower, SJLTC will lead an effort to build a new, world-class, distinctive structure. This new landmark would use cutting-edge architecture and technology to recognize the region’s history, while inspiring future generations with a state-of-the-art design.
SJLTC will perform site selection, discuss possible amenities, and implement fundraising strategies to bring this creative vision to life. A worldwide competition will be launched to find the ultimate design, followed by an anticipated four-year project development and construction cycle, with project completion in 2022.
