San Jose, CA Economic Overview

Location Photo

With over two million residents, San Jose is the largest city in Northern California, and the third-most populous after Los Angeles and San Diego. Home to the world-renowned Silicon Valley, San Jose is known as a global city, most noted for its high cost of living, affluence, and location within the booming high tech industry. Nicknamed the 'Capital of Silicon Valley' San Jose has the third-highest GDP per capita in the world, after Zurich, Switzerland and Oslo. The sprawling metro area of San Jose is filled with high rise buildings, large tech campuses and tree-lined suburban neighborhoods. Major players in the global technology arena, such as Cisco Systems, eBay, Adobe Systems, PayPal, Samsung, and Acer guarantee that San Jose is practically recession proof and that the demand for commercial real estate in San Jose will be phenomenally strong for years to come.

As the capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose's economy is driven by the dense concentration of high-technology computer, engineering and microprocessing companies that are located within its borders. This, combined with the City's closeness to other high tech headquarters in Silicon Valley, such as Google in Mountain View, and Apple in Cupertino, ensure that the economy in San Jose will continue to be one of the world's strongest.

Private capital from around the world flows into San Jose at an unprecedented pace. Nearly 35% of all venture capital funds in the U.S. are invested in Silicon Valley and in San Jose. The workforce is so productive here that the United States Patent and Trademark Office had to open a satellite office in San Jose to process all of the patents produced - more than any other city in the United States.

San Jose, CA Commercial Real Estate Market

The business districts in San Jose are Downtown, North San Jose, South San Jose, and West San Jose. Here's a quick snapshot of some of the major contributors to the booming commercial real estate markets in San Jose:

Downtown San Jose is one of the preeminent urban live-work centers to be found anywhere in the world, and attracts a highly-talented workforce, due to its amenities and easy access to transportation. Companies such as Adobe, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, Pinger, Oracle and over 100 other high-tech companies call Downtown San Jose home. Google is currently working with the City to purchase and develop astounding 8 million square feet of space to be used as an employment district in the Downtown area.

Currently undergoing a transformation to an innovative, live-work district, North San Jose has received more than $2.7 billion in private investment over the last few years. The president of Samsung Semiconductor stated that "North San Jose is where the future of business is happening and where technology and innovation come together," while Forbes Magazine designated San Jose as one of the coolest places to live in the U.S. There's a huge amount of growth potential in North San Jose, with room for the current 16,000 homes to more than double, area for the current 59 million square feet of work spaces to increase by 50%, and the current employee base of 81,000 to increase by more than 100%.

The business district of South San Jose offers residents and employees the benefit of a reverse commute to work, via U.S. Highways 101 and 85 and the light rail transit system. This urban village offers ample housing, world-class amenities and a highly-educated workforce. South San Jose itself has two business districts: Edenvale, which is primarily an industrial area and one of the leading job creators in San Jose; and Evergreen, which is primarily a residential and retail area with some of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the City of San Jose.

West San Jose is the most up and coming area of the City and has morphed from an affordable bedroom community with moderately priced housing, to one of extremely upscale properties exceeding $1 million in price. West San Jose is closest to Cupertino and Campbell, and is home to some of the trendiest shopping in the City with boutique retail such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany and Co., and BOSS Hugo Boss. Willow Glenn’s downtown is also a popular destination for shopping and dining.
