CityView Plaza

This 7.8-acre redevelopment in downtown San Jose consists of six interconnected, 19-story, glass-lined office towers above five levels of underground parking. Langan performed a geotechnical investigation and provided various recommendations. We also created a two-dimensional soil structure interaction (SSI) model, which incorporated the basement and mat slab to estimate ground motions during an earthquake and develop site-specific response spectra and time series for the tower’s performance-based design.
