Related Companies is collaborating with the City of Santa Clara to construct the Related Santa Clara; a LEED-certified, multi-phased, mixed-use project that will be located adjacent to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The 240-acre, 9.2 million-square-foot project began construction in May 2019 and will eventually include 5.4 million square feet of office space, 700 hotel rooms, 1,680 residential units, including 170 affordable units, and approximately 1 million square feet of restaurant, retail, and entertainment space.
The Related Santa Clara features a new city park with open green space that will be developed on 30 acres of land, set aside for the building of a new open green space. The team will provide US$5 million to the City of Santa Clara to assist fund the design and construction of this new outdoor area which will be the focal point of the project’s extensive green network.
A new Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan that includes the usage of local and regional transportation choices, as well as innovative initiatives such as private shuttles, ridesharing possibilities, and bicycle support facilities, will also be implemented as part of the project.
Related Santa Clara Project team
Foster + Partners, is the project’s primary design architect with Gensler as the executive architect. WSP USA was also hired by Related as the project’s main engineer for the primary infrastructural aspects.
Reportedly, Related and the city of Santa Clara’s public-private partnership has had to overcome a few obstacles in its quest to transform a public golf course into a development that, according to Related, will generate 25,000 jobs, US$ 17 million in annual taxes, fees, and lease revenue, and millions of dollars for area school and transportation projects.
The project’s first phase is expected to be completed in 2023.
