SJ City Council should back raising
downtown building heights
As technology improves, we improve with it — we hope that our City Council keeps this in mind as San Jose explores the idea of raising building heights to bring density to downtown and the Diridon Station Area.
For too long, San Jose has been restricted from constructing a vibrant downtown core. Thanks to improved airplane technology and partnerships with the airlines that serve SJC, we can now safely raise building heights without impeding the flight path to and from Silicon Valley’s airport.
The change in flight planning known as One Engine Inoperative (or OEI), which hasn’t been examined since 2007, provides San Jose the opportunity to smartly leverage billions of dollars of investment that the citizens of the Bay Area have wisely invested into the Diridon Station Area.

It’s time for us to have the downtown our city deserves. We urge the San Jose City Council to support this change.
