J.J. Albanese led the way on this projects by excavating a 45-foot-deep, 40,000-cubic-yard hole in the middle of Downtown Palo Alto, no simple task. Due to the limited space and proximity to the public, JJA crews had to work consciously and safely in order to get the job done.

As part of Palo Alto’s push towards transit-oriented development, a key feature of the New Urbanism movement, the Lytton Gateway was developed next to the Caltrain station. The pedestrian-friendly venue features 47,000 square feet of office space, 5,200 square feet of retail space, a roof-top garden, high speed elevators, car stackers, charging stations and a two-and-a-half-level basement parking garage.
