Santa Clara is home to a state-of-the-art stadium, some of the most innovative minds in the country, and one of the first universities established in the state of California. Related Santa Clara looks to enhance these already impressive offerings by adding a number of benefits for the city of Santa Clara.
A Sense of Place
Even in this time when technology provides increasingly diverse ways to connect, people still long for a sense of belonging; for a community; for a place to gather and celebrate all life has to offer. Which is why people are leaving the suburbs and flocking to urban centers around the country. Related Santa Clara will create this shared experience in an inclusive community enjoyed by neighbors and visitors alike.
According to the Silicon Valley Index, while rapid job growth has been experienced by a number of sectors in the region, middle-wage and middle-skill jobs have barely recovered from the recession and represent a shrinking number of total employment in the region. Related Santa Clara will create an estimated 25,000 jobs – many of which will be in the restaurant, retail, and hotel industries – for residents who work outside the tech field.
On-site water recycling. Radiant cooling and heating systems. On-site bio-fuel generation. Related is exploring a number of ways to incorporate the sustainability and environmental consciousness that defines the Bay Area. The plan is currently undergoing Environmental Review to determine any impacts on the community from the project. Please check back soon for additional details.
Pedestrian and Bike Networks
Out of whole cloth, Related Santa Clara is producing a bike and pedestrian network that will integrate seamlessly with already-existing networks throughout the area. A map of the proposed bicycle network will be available soon.
This new urban center is located in a transit-rich location directly adjacent to the world-class 49ers stadium. Related is working with the city of Santa Clara and with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority to ensure easy access for pedestrians who travel to the city center using public transportation.
Related is in the process of finalizing a number of lease agreements with the City of Santa Clara, and the project is undergoing Environmental Review. To remain updated on the progress of the project, please sign up to receive e-mail updates from the project team.
