Castro Street Project Update!

Updates from our Castro street mixed use project that is currently underway. Located on the corner of Castro Street and El Camino Real in the Mountain View downtown corridor, the project envisions a public plaza at the corner that serves the public, the adjacent neighborhood, and the tenants of the mixed use development. The public plaza extends through and around both buildings in the public realm offering café and seating space, passive gathering areas, strolling, climate responsive plantings, shade tree canopy, and a pedestrian oriented streetscape.sized_water-fountain-combinedA custom wood seating platform and fountain adds unique seating opportunities and experience to the corner plaza. Fountain is by Ore, Inc. in corten.
