“2016 is shaping up as a great year for the South Bay/San Jose construction and development economy,” LaVelle says. “Residential development is in full swing, and commercial office and corporate campus construction is also strong. We have designed many tech campus projects that are coming on line including Netflix, Facebook and Google facilities. These projects also increase the demand for housing. We believe mixed-use projects represent the future trend toward higher density, walkable communities and less reliance on the car.”
