Los Angeles-based Lowe Enterprises received approval from the county board of supervisors on its master development agreement for the 55-acre Santa Clara Civic Center project. The proposed multi-phased planning and development project is expected to create a more modern and efficient center for government services.
Lowe is working with Gensler Architects on an initial Master Plan that’s expected to take 12 months to develop. They will work to identify the size and location of all aspects of the Civic Center site, including government buildings, parking, and open spaces that could bring potential new uses, while also complementing and enhancing the existing neighborhood.
Among the initial recommendations being considered are:
- Public space planning for the 1.15-million-square-foot Civic Center Campus, including 23 acres for public uses, with an estimated 17 acres of county-owned land for possible revenue-generating purposes
- Demolition of the West Wing
- Relocation of some county administrative uses in order to make room for revenue-generating purposes
- Redevelopment/modernization or replacement of the East Wing
- Relocation of the Sheriff’s Emergency Vehicles Operations Center
