Bank of Italy is key part of downtown San Jose plan

SAN JOSE — The Bank of Italy historic tower in downtown San Jose is slated for more than an eye-catching renovation: The iconic high rise could become an office, cultural, retail, and food hub under a revamp that a development alliance has proposed.

Global development powerhouse Westbank has teamed up with local developer Gary Dillabough to launch a wide-ranging and long-term venture that would usher in a dramatic makeover of downtown San Jose, and the Bank of Italy tower is one of the early efforts in the endeavor.

“The Bank of Italy is an amazing building,” said Andrew Jacobson, head of development for Westbank’s San Jose initiative. “The historic characteristics are unlike anything you will see.”

A top-to-bottom, inside-and-outside renovation and rehabilitation of the historic tower at 12 S. First St. in San Jose is long overdue, Jacobson said. Now, the upgrade is ready to happen under the guidance of Westbank and Dillabough’s Urban Community company.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s $193 billion budget proposes several provisions that could benefit real estate, but the next two months will determine if any of them survive the legislative gauntlet.

New York needs to close a $15 billion deficit, and the pressure is on to raise taxes on the wealthy. Cuomo has been reluctant to do that, however, but allows it would be necessary without ample federal aid.

The governor has also proposed legalizing marijuana and one-time revenue raisers such as licensing downstate casinos — a measure several prominent office landlords have pitched.

Progressive lawmakers appear to have other plans, however.

The state Senate, where Democrats won a veto-proof majority in November, has pushed for more taxes on the rich. The chamber’s move to the left in the past two election cycles has resulted in policies that favored tenants. Many in the real estate industry hope legislators will take a more moderate stance as New York tries to recover from the pandemic, but there is little evidence they will do so.

In a radio interview with WNYC, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins renewed her

Six Key Residential Wellness Design Trends For 2021

Wellness design was a strong and growing trend before Covid-19 reached our shores early last year, but it has exploded in popularity as the virus increased awareness of the links between home and health. It’s likely that the trend will long outlive the pandemic.

That’s partly because so many Americans have spent so many more hours at home considering what works for them and what doesn’t in their living spaces, have had to start working in existing or improvised home offices, set up distance learning stations for their children, possibly started doing bulk shopping online and needing more storage, inexplicably couldn’t find toilet paper in stores last Spring, and wished they had bidet functionality in their toilets; sequestered ill family members in spare rooms, or moved an older relative out of a nursing home or assisted living facility.

It’s also because the virus was shown last summer to be mostly transmitted via airborne spread in poorly-ventilated spaces, elevating the importance of indoor air quality management and improved ventilation.

Key interior decor practices that are expected to go big in 2021

Next year’s interior trends may also be characterised by increasing DIY efforts, houseplants and a growing awareness of sustainability issues.

“Yes, people are more conscious about what they’re getting and you see an increasing number of local furniture designers that appeal to this demand.

“However, it all boils down to dollars and cents. Sustainable products tend to cost more (as it is currently still a niche). While one can start their interior with sustainability in mind, they may often end up with offerings (materials and products) that are common, massively produced and readily available. What we do need is a drive for local producers and manufacturers to fill the void, ” says Azlan Syarawi Mokhtar Bajunid, director of Seshandesign.

Wong Pei San, director of Essential Design Integrated, says sustainability when it comes to houses use that which is free and readily available, i.e. natural daylighting, fresh air from cross ventilation, courtyard to allow hot air to rise and discharge.Not only do plants add to the aesthetic quality of interior spaces, they also have a tendency to reduce stress and anxiety of the occupants.
