San Jose Environmental Innovation Center
1608 Las Plumas Avenue, San Jose, CA 95133
San Jose’s Environmental Services Department commissioned Group 4 to design the adaptive reuse of a historic 46,000 square foot warehouse building and site for new uses supporting the City’s Green Vision. The warehouse building features two major tenant spaces intended to house a salvage/recycled construction materials business, as well as a cooperative “Clean Technology Development Center” focused on research and development of alternative fuels for transportation. Also located in the warehouse are a large training/conference room, office/incubator space for environmental businesses, and support spaces.
In a new building on the site is a household hazardous waste dropoff facility for Santa Clara County residents. The HHW facility is designed for efficient site circulation of customer vehicles as well as efficient flow of HHW materials from the unloading area through sorting, bulking, and loading for off-site shipment.
