Thank You - Gateway Crossings

Thank you everyone for your support at the Tuesday Night Council Meeting and during the process.

The Gateway Crossings Project was approved on Tuesday with a unanimous vote from the Council.

While OQRA feels this project is one that did not ultimately meet the standards Santa Clara should be striving to achieve with new developments, we hope that this shows developers that they need to propose fabulous projects with community benefits. Everyone's involvement helped make this project much better than the developer’s initial offering.

All of the following changes were achieve through efforts of the OQRA and members of the community, most of which came after the December Council Meeting:

  • Community Space for PAL, with 35 year lease for $1/month

  • Tavern on the Green

  • Additional Linear Park

  • Hotel in Phase 1

  • (50) Additional Hotel Rooms

  • Hotel Amenities Added

    • Conference space

    • Meeting rooms

  • Hotel Roof-Top Restaurant/Bar

  • Additional 20,000 sq/ft of Neighborhood Retail

  • Consolidated Retail Along Main Block

  • Density of Housing Units Increased to 1556

  • Improved Project Accessibility from the Train Station

We want to thank everyone for their support, these improvements would not have been achieved without all of you.
