Tech CampusOn Monday, April 7, 2014 the City Council unanimously approved plans for the Downtown Tech Campus, a transformational project for Downtown San Leandro and the entire city. The Tech Campus will be the first major office development under San Leandro’s Downtown Transit Oriented Development Strategy and the first technology oriented project in downtown. Westlake Development Partners’ multi-phased campus proposal will include three six-story office buildings totaling 340,000-500,000 square feet. Construction will start this year on the first 132,000 square foot building. OSIsoft is slated to be the primary tenant for Phase 1 – ensuring that this rapidly expanding, international software company remains headquartered in San Leandro for decades to come.

TechCampus2This $200 million investment will serve as a major, high-quality job generator, creating 600 construction jobs in Phase 1,  up to 2,000 construction jobs upon completion,  and 1,800 employees occupying the completed buildings. Other amenities from the development  include a “paseo” connecting Alvarado Street to the BART Station, landscaped pedestrian/bicycle path on Martinez Street that will comprise the first phase of the regional East Bay Green Way, on-site public art, and a parking structure.

The site plans below show the three planned phases of this exciting project.

    Its inspiring to see these accomplishments grow up in our own back yard. With room to spare for old manufacturing plants (this was a Del Monte Cannery) San Leandro is investing in its own future.
