New San Jose hotel gets city blessing, would add hundreds of rooms

SAN JOSE — A new hotel that’s been proposed for a North San Jose site near the popular Topgolf entertainment complex won final city approval this week.

The hotel would total 214 rooms and be built near the corner of North First Street and Nortech Parkway in San Jose’s Alviso district, according to city planning documents.

Terra Development Partners, a Milpitas-based real estate firm, is developing the project.

The hotel would be located next to the typically busy entertainment and sports complex.

Both the newly approved hotel and the Topgolf facility are part of what Terra Development had originally envisioned as an entertainment hub in the Alviso area.

“The hotel would serve the nearby offices, industrial parks and entertainment venues,” a city planning document states.

The approval of the hotel comes at a time when the economy in the Bay Area and Silicon Valley is attempting to recuperate from the economic maladies spawned by the coronavirus.
