Everyone, including the city of San Jose, is involved in helping Google obtain the necessary 6 - 8 million square feet of office space to satisfy the requirements for the company's downtown San Jose Transit Village. Between 15,000 - 20,000 employees are projected to be housed there.
It seems the city itself may be looking into obtaining empty lots that may be useful down the line in helping Google piece together the needed tapestry to gentrify downtown or at least benefit from its expansion. Buying up land now and using it as parking space, until it can be used for differing purposes at a future date.
As the city is looking at possibly assisting Google, the company itself quietly and continuously gobbling up all the available parcels of land valued so far at $150 Million. The company may need to collect more than 240 acres for the mega project.
As the article says, this project is going forth. "No one is going to put up this much money and then just fold." You can already see the interest level for properties in downtown rising dramatically as buyers are learning of the project and what is to come. The news of Google Village is already transforming the area.
