Situated less than a half mile from Diridon Station, 404 Bird Avenue is adjacent to one of the busiest intermodal stations on the West Coast, serviced by Caltrain, Amtrak, ACE Train, VTA, several bus lines and soon, BART.

With only 13 designated OZs in all of Silicon Valley, 404 Bird Avenue’s direct proximity to Google’s future Transit Village makes it the region’s top institutional-quality OZ.

OZ investors can defer capital gains, reduce capital gains liability by up to 15%, and pay no capital gains tax on the Qualified OZ Investment.

404 Bird Avenue’s strategic access to the most innovative companies in the world has positioned its neighborhood as Silicon Valley’s top income growth submarket. As a fully-amenitized community located adjacent to Diridon Station, the Property will offer the high end, transit-oriented hotel experience critical to attracting the region’s most affluent guests.

World’s Largest Concentration of Tech Employers

  • 404 Bird Avenue benefits from its location in core Silicon Valley, the uncontested tech capital of the world and home to three of the world’s top ten most valuable companies.
  • With a 20% increase in labor force over the past 10 years, Silicon Valley boasts the world’s second highest per capita GDP at $128,308 annually while maintaining one of the country’s lowest unemployment rates of 2.4%.
  • The Silicon Valley/San Francisco Metro captured 47% of all venture capital investment over the past two years – $45.5 billion was invested in 2018, contributing to spurred growth and innovation.

Path to Approval

Plans are to be submitted to the San Jose City Planning Department for Site Development Permit review. Approvals take ±8 months. With the parcels already having approval for hotel development, no local resistance is anticipated.
