Mercury News building on Ridder Park Drive

May 5, 2015 Posted by Franklin Maggi

An interesting hearing Wednesday May 6 at the San Jose Historic Landmarks Commission: SuperMicro has nominated it’s newly purchased San Jose Mercury News building as a Historic Landmark in order to see if the San Jose City Council will actually designate it. They have filed for a demolition permit but have to do an EIR since the historic evaluation says its a CEQA resource under City of San Jose criteria. If the City Council refuses to designate, then it appears the Building Official can issue a demolition permit.

This is the staff report:
