The Towers @ 2nd project is located in the heart of downtown San Jose. The property is made up of two towers totaling approximately 500,000 square feet of office space. The towers are divided by an existing pathway that connects adjacent streets and is located by a sunken courtyard. The goal of the new ownership was to provide targeted improvements and amenities that will support technology-based organizations and their unique urban lifestyle/workplace culture.

The building entry utilizes glazed canopies and a new vision glazing that provide a visual connection between the dynamic urban streetscape and the newly rebranded lobby. The exterior design rejuvenates existing downtown connections by creating an enhanced courtyard that hosts exterior gathering areas, a plug-in restaurant and a tenant-exclusive, mature tree-laden lower level, known as “The Underground”. The Underground is activated by a blended connection of interior and exterior spaces that support tenant-specific needs, such as programmatic and organic gatherings and community building for occupants. Interior improvements support the workspace expectations of the collaboration generation and include a tenant training zone, phone rooms, nourishment counter, informal social spaces, wellness center, VIP lounge, gamer’s room and alternative transit station.
