SAN JOSE — A huge tech campus has moved closer to reality now that a Canadian pension board has teamed up with a big developer to jointly build the transit-oriented project in downtown San Jose.
The Platform 16 office complex is now being jointly developed by Boston Properties and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. CBRE, a commercial real estate firm, is seeking tenants for the new campus.
Once complete, the campus would total 1.1 million square feet and sprout near Autumn Parkway and West Julian Street a short distance from the Diridon train station in downtown San Jose.
