Another challenging project for The Conco Companies is the Century Center Towers, a 376-unit apartment building in North San Jose, CA. Once complete, it will be the tallest residential project in the area, with two 12-story towers, coming off of one giant floor plan. The project broke ground in late August 2014 and is scheduled to be finished in early 2017.
The approximately 574,000 square feet steel-and-glass high-rise sits on a 2.37 acre site. The Barry Swenson Builder is partnering with the Essex Property Trust on the project, and will be the general contractor, and Essex, the operating partner once the building is complete. The total cost of the project is $170 million including the cost of the land.
Conco will provide the concrete services on the building as well as for the construction of a 494-car parking structure. Our time-lapsed YouTube video demonstrates the 6,650 yard mat foundation pour that we did for the property in January 2015. The pour got under way at 1:00 A.M. and was completed later that same day at 5:00 P.M. The ready-mix was supplied by Central Concrete and was placed by our expert crews.
The Class-A building will feature a sleek, modern glass design with lots of windows to allow for natural light and to take advantage of 360-degree views of the city. Amenities include an extensive 12th-floor recreation deck with swimming pool, workout room, bocce, and plenty of space for outdoor cooking and eating. There will also be a dog run area.
The Century Center Towers are going to offer studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Another benefit to the location is a close proximity to the San Jose airport. There are also many existing office buildings nearby as well as several new projects that are in the planning stages for the near future such as a large medical office campus from Kaiser Permanente and a new casino/entertainment complex from Bay 101.
