Report

BACKGROUND
The project site consists of two parcels totaling 21.4 acres located at the southwest corner of Coleman Avenue and Brokaw Road. The majority of the site (20.4 acres) is located in the City of Santa Clara (APN: 230-46-069). The 1.0-acre portion at the southeastern corner of the site is located in the City of San Jose (APN: 230-46-070). The project site is currently vacant and was previously developed with industrial and office/research and development uses formerly occupied by FMC, United Defense and BAE Systems.
