As a wooden web of building frame rises into view near the San Antonio Road and El Camino Real intersection, the developer of the mixed-use project said work is on track to finish next year.
“Much of the construction is with old-fashioned European technology, and it takes care and time,” said developer and Los Altos Hills resident John Vidovich of De Anza Properties. “But I think it will pay off in price and in looks.”
The five-story project (two are underground) at 590 San Antonio, which includes a combination of residential, retail and office space, will feature German appliances, hand-cut stone and LED lighting.
“The homeowner will have lights that never need bulb changing, emit no heat and burn less than half of what the best fluorescent can do,” Vidovich said.
The previous building, home to several offices, was demolished in 2010 to make way for the new development.
Retail tenants have not been identified.
