PT Pan Investments described the Landmark Tower Project. It will be a high-end luxury high-rise project, with all the amenities complemented with a 24/7 security system, with live security guards on the premises. The first of its kind to be built, not just in Milpitas, but in the whole Bay Area. It is located at 600 Barber Lane, on the old Chevrolet Dealership site.
The construction budget for the project, including hard and soft costs, is approximately $500 million. The project will be an 18 floor high-rise, consisting of 375 condo units, mostly 1 - 2 bedrooms. Designed for the single, or young professional couple, and elderly couples as well., for residents who want an office or a little extra space.
Commercial retail center on floors 1 - 3, the third floor will have a food court, and luxury offices on the fourth floor, first of its kind in Milpitas. There will be on-site park environments, interior garden/park settings, similar to those that can be found in Las Vegas, Nevada. The tower is designed to be "earthquake proof" and "noise proof."
This project was designed with the pedestrian in mind, offering everything in one location to help residents reduce the use of cars, so that future residents can walk to work, shop, and enjoy restaurant dining. Lending itself to a life-style that accommodates its surrounding residents with an all-in-one pedestrian orientation of the future.
Residents live, work, and are entertained all in one center focal point: Landmark tower and its surrounding areas. This project will be the solution to rush hour traffic congestion in this area. This project will positively contribute to the economic growth of the city of Milpitas by bringing a lot of business, a lot of jobs, as well as tax revenue for the city. We have designed this luxury project to be consistent with city policy of high-end luxury offices, because it will promote business in Milpitas, and provide opportunities to expand employment.
