The highly-anticipated “Downtown West” — the transit village that’s planned near the Diridon Station — may be slightly delayed.
This week, Google announced that it will need to reassess its timeline for the development in the wake of layoffs and uncertainty about existing real estate leases.
Initially, the tech titan predicted construction would begin at the end of this year, so demolition had already begun at Patty’s Inn, an Airgas store (and the building next to it), and the old Sunlite Baking Co. building.
The Dancing Pig Sign at Stephen’s Meat Products was also relocated last November to History Park, where it will stay until being returned to the finished mixed-use village.
While a clear date for the rise of the project is uncertain, Google is currently working with development consultant Lendlease to map out the scope of future work.
We’ll update this story as more information is announced.
