History

Santana Row Park is home to the 19th-century Neo-Gothic façade of a chapel from Montpellier, France.
Santana Row Park is home to the 19th-century Neo-Gothic façade of a chapel from Montpellier, France.

Santana Row derives its name from Frank M. Santana, who served on San Jose's planning commission in the 1950s, who is also the namesake for the area's Frank M. Santana Park.

The 42-acre "village within a city" was developed as a luxury, mixed residential and shopping district between 2001-2002, for a cost of $450 million and was at the time regarded as "the most ambitious project of its kind in the United States".[1] In 2010, it was called "an arguably successful mixed-use development".[2]

The site was previously a Town and Country Village. On August 19, 2002, during construction, the largest building at Santana Row (Building 7, "Santana Heights") caught fire. The fire eventually caused $130 million in damage, and embers spread to at least 13 apartment buildings, some with wooden roofs, nearly a mile downwind of the shopping center on Moorpark Avenue, across Interstate 280. The main fire spread to five alarms, while the secondary fires required six alarms. It was the largest structure fire in San Jose's history.[3]

Santana Row continues to expand in 2017.[4] Santana Row has a population of 24,196 within a one-mile radius and 740,000 within the 5 mile (daytime) trade zone.[5]

Shopping

Santana Row offers a mix of brand name shops, local boutiques, thirty-six establishments serving food, nine spas and salons, CineArts movie theatre, and the boutique hotel Hotel Valencia.

The shops range from luxury brands such as Gucci and Kate Spade to more casual brands like H&M, Ann Taylor LOFT, and Urban Outfitters.

The Row also includes restaurants ranging from local concepts like Left Bank Brasserie and sister restaurant LB Steak, Pizza Antica, and Ozumo, specializing in Japanese cuisine to chains like The Counter, Maggiano's Little Italy, Pinkberry and a Yard House that closes at 1:00am. The district is anchored by Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, and The Container Store.

Architecture

Builder Magazine noted the street's European atmosphere that was achieved by employing a variety of architectural designs for the structures as well as sophisticated landscaping details.[citation needed] These details focused on the use of mature oak and palm trees, shaded grassy plazas, courtyards, and fountains, intimate public seating areas, extra-wide sidewalks and street medians, and multi-use destinations such as Park Valencia, which hosts live music, and other public gatherings.

Awards

The collaborative design effort earned Santana Row two major awards, the CELSOC Engineering Excellence Award in 2004, and Builder Magazine's Project of the Year in 2003.

The design team, including SB Architects, BAR Architects, Steinberg Architects and landscape architects The SWA Group and April Philips Design Works, worked on behalf of the project developers, Federal Realty Investment Trust.
