The 88 Description

Featuring the most sought after location in downtown San Jose and amenities that rival those found in 5-star hotels, The 88 high rise luxury condo building has been recognized as Silicon Valley's most luxurious high-rise address.  Nestled in the heart of San Jose's Cultural/Historic District, The 88 high rise provides immediate walking access to the arts, fine dining, parks and open space.  At almost 88-meters (286 feet) in height, The 88 is the tallest residential high-rise building between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and offers stunning views to match.  Residents of this luxury high-rise will also enjoy superior design, extraordinary quality of construction, floor-to-ceiling glass, and finishes to suit the most discriminating of buyers.  Every detail has been considered!  Hospitality services at The 88 will included an attended lobby, concierge services, 24-hour security, and optional dry cleaning, laundry, and housekeeping.  A pedestrian plaza flanked by shops and restaurants will provide a central gathering place between The 88's high-rise building and a planned second high rise tower. 

Private amenities at The 88 luxury high-rise condo community include a resort-like outdoor lounge on the fifth floor with heated lap pool, hot tub, barbecue area, and landscaped courtyard.  The 88 also features a state-of-the-art fitness facility featuring Cardio Theatre with personal television screens and iPod docking stations.  Residents will also enjoy an entertaining area complete with gourmet kitchen, billiards room with media wall, and wireless internet in select common areas.  The 88 also includes a skyline observation terrace on the 21st floor for residents to enjoy the stunning views of Silicon Valley from the top of this high rise tower. 

The 88 is the first of two condominium high-rises in a development called Central Place, providing a major impact of new residents, retail space and activity to the resurgence of downtown San Jose.  The 88, formerly known as Tower 88 (or Tower 88 at Central Place) is destined to change not only the residential landscape of downtown San Jose, but also the skyline of downtown San Jose.  Consisting of The 88 and a planned second high rise tower, a combined 402 residential units (197 in Phase 1, 205 in Phase 2) will reside above an estimated total 69,000 square feet of retail (32,000 sq. ft. in Phase 1, 37,000 sq. ft. in Phase 2).  The Market by Safeway currently anchors the retail space at The 88. 

The 88 (formerly Tower 88 at Central Place) is a joint venture by CIM Group, Wilson Meany Sullivan, Stockbridge Real Estate Funds, and the San Jose Redevelopment Agency.  The 88 high rise was built by Webcor Builders.  The 88 is exclusively represented by Pacific Marketing Associates, Inc.
