Northpoint Plaza: Makeover Marks a New Beginning for Los Gatos Building

Owners of Northpoint Plaza Selected SiliconX Construction for the building’s makeover.

300x199xNorthpoint_Front_2-4-14-300x199.jpg.pagespeed.ic.JTrosULpMPProject Highlights

  • Provided a full façade update with new landscaping and signage
  • Completed all construction work including applying the stucco accents and repainting the entire building without inconveniencing the building’s tenants
  • Relied on innovative value engineering techniques and close cooperation among the building’s owners, construction team members, and Town of Los Gatos planners to complete the project on budget and on schedule
  • Have seen the occupancy rise from less than 50% to close to 100%

Built in 1980, the two-story, 18,000 sq. ft. building in Los Gatos formerly known as Greenfield Plaza was showing its age. Located at 634 N. Santa Cruz Avenue in Los Gatos’ prime North Downtown area, the building had provided quality space for retailers and business and professional firms for more than three decades. But it had fallen into disrepair as of late and the tired two-story, Spanish-style structure needed a complete makeover to regain its premier status.



Although the building was in desperate need of renovation, the space had remained at close to 50% occupied. This meant that the construction would need to be done without disturbing the existing tenants. The new owners decided that the Spanish-style motif wouldn’t change, but virtually every exterior architectural element would require updating. In addition, the owners were naturally anxious to finish the work on the newly renamed Northpoint Plaza as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible — to attract and retain tenants.



SiliconX Construction was selected to handle a full façade update of Northpoint Plaza. The work included a complete re-facing of the stucco and repainting of the building including the addition of artisan ceramic tile accents from Mexico, new balcony railings, energy-efficient exterior lighting, new walkways and benches, new signage, and extensive landscaping with accent walls to match the main structure.

One of the most challenging aspects of the project for SiliconX was repainting the exterior and applying the stucco accents without inconveniencing the building’s tenants. SiliconX and its team worked closely with Epoch to ensure that the tenants could continue to operate their businesses normally throughout the entire renovation.

Through meticulous planning, excellent responsiveness from the Town of Los Gatos, and a number of innovative value engineering techniques, SiliconX was able to complete the project to the highest standards of quality while staying on budget and on schedule.



Today, Northpoint Plaza presents a dramatic profile at the entrance to Los Gatos’ North Downtown area. The two-story building offers Class A ground-floor retail suites in addition to a variety of second-floor offices with high ceilings, full-height doors and narrow bay-depths for fantastic window lines. A secured underground parking structure provides ample on-site parking for tenants and visitors alike.

The offices are within easy walking distance of shopping, banking, restaurants, and other services in the downtown Los Gatos area. The outdoor benches provide a pleasant sitting area near the main entrance. The building also offers excellent access to Highways 85, 17 and 9 for timely, trouble-free commutes.

With the renovation complete, local property manager, Borelli Investment Company, quickly increased the occupancy to close to 100%, where it has remained.

San Jose’s Diridon Station Area Plan is officially a go.

Article from Silicon Valley Business Journal

The San Jose City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the new land-use guide for the 250-acre area centered on Diridon Station, the city’s biggest transit hub. The plan was slated for approval earlier this month, but council members delayed taking action until this week to go over some last-minute changes.

The plan hasn’t gotten a lot of coverage, but it’s a big deal for the long-term future of the area, which is just opposite downtown on the other side of Highway 87.

Bay Area Real Estate Stongest in America

sf“We are in an outright boom; the strongest place in America.” Those were the resounding words spoken by Kenneth Rosen, chairman of the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics at the Haas School of Business of the University of California, Berkeley, as he opened the center’s 19th annual conference, Monday, April 28, describing the state of the Bay Area real estate market.

The information presented at the event summarized the state of the national economy, with special emphasis on the regional figures, as well. But it was the assessment of the real estate industry that most of the attendees of the event wanted to hear. Unsurprisingly, the region checked in as healthy as one would expect.

Borelli and SiliconX Construction Receive Approval for New Retail Center on Saich Way in Cupertino

Saich Way Station CupertinoFive years ago, the neighborhood retail center on Saich Way at Stevens Creek Boulevard in the heart of Cupertino had a fire that destroyed most of the businesses located there.  Now, developer Borelli Investment Company and contractor SiliconX Construction have received approval from the Cupertino City Council to rebuild and expand the center to 15,500 square feet of retail space.  Construction is expected to begin in the 1st quarter of 2014, with completion expected by October 2014.

Surrounded by some of the largest and most successful employers in Silicon Valley and situated across Saich Way from a busy Target store, the Saich Way Station center promises to offer its tenants not only high-quality Class “A” retail space, but also an incomparable, high-traffic location.  This desirable combination for tenants has already resulted in approximately 50% of the expanded center to be pre-leased.

“We and our team have worked very hard with the long-time family owners of the property and the City of Cupertino to design a project that complements the well-planned Cupertino community,” said Tom Purtell, Chief Operating Officer of SiliconX Construction.  “This has made the project very attractive to the retailers we’re talking to and we’re excited about the prospects for the center going forward.”

Built from the Ground Up

Saich Way Station CupertinoThe construction project will involve complete demolition of the existing structures on the site, and then building the new retail center from the ground up.  There will be ample parking and extensive landscaping that will include orchard-like trees consistent with Cupertino’s heritage.  Further, because the retail center falls within Cupertino’s Heart of the City Specific Plan area, attention will be paid to ensuring that the site is friendly to both pedestrians and cyclists, with wide walkways and bike racks in front of the retail businesses.
