Tasman East Focus Area is a catalyzing City plan for transforming the northern area of Santa Clara near Levi’s Stadium from light industrial and intermittent strip centers into a vibrant, transit-oriented, high-density residential district. BAR has designed five buildings within the overall master plan. Through collaboration with the Owner, BAR has also provided the City comments to the draft development standards to help refine the development framework for the new mixed-use neighborhood.
The buildings’ design are each unique to their respective micro-contexts, programs and urban spaces. All buildings are in close proximity to public transportation (the VTA light rail system) and the Guadalupe River trail systems. Centrally located within Silicon Valley, our projects are designed for an outdoor, social lifestyle. Particular attention has been paid to sculpting the building massing to craft well-proportioned public plazas, parks, and greenways to be enjoyed by both building residents and the public.
BAR’s work includes two high rises and three mid-rises of varying wood construction types – traditional stick framing, panelized construction and fully modular construction.
