Santa Clara Fairgrounds | Santa Clara, CA

Vibrant, Walkable, Livable, Mixed-Use Community Plan


The Santa Clara Fairgrounds project was a joint venture developer proposal to redevelop the approximately 150 acre Santa Clara County Fairgrounds property into a walkable mixed-use community. The plan focused around a diverse open space and stormwater management network that connects the residential areas to the repurposed fairgrounds concourse and the new mixed-use areas. The plan included 1,480 total units, 48,000 sf of retail/restaurant uses, 270,000 sf of Office/Light Industrial, and maintained some of the existing fairground uses.
