Is it a good idea to design recreational outdoor areas as part of the project?

The competition site is Arena Green at Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, a public park used year round due to the mild climate of Silicon Valley.  It is expected that successful submissions will increase activity in the park, not only during the day but also in the evening.

Can the power poles and overhead power lines be eliminated?

There is currently no approved plan to remove or relocate the power poles and power lines. SJLTC is hopeful that the power lines will be relocated as part of the electrical infrastructure improvements required by ongoing developments in the area (including BART, Diridon Station, Google, and other massive projects).  If any of the three finalists’ designs requires the power lines to be removed or relocated, theSJLTC will do everything in its power to accommodate this request, but SJLTC cannot currently guarantee that the power lines can be relocated

The San Louis Arch is630’ tall. The Eiffel Tower is 1,063’ tall The Seattle Space Needle is 605’ tall. Are you 100% sure that you want to locate the new landmark under the flightpath? Should we not at least propose moving the site to the Plaza de Cesar Chavez to try to activate the existing downtown? This would also be a benefit by not disturbing the birds and fish in Los Gatos Creek and Guadalupe River at Arena Green.

Arena Green was ranked as the preferred site by the Steinberg Hart site selection study. OnMarch 12, 2019, the San Jose City Council unanimously approved this site with an 11 to 0 vote.
