The project includes both physical and programmatic changes to St. James Park, a seven-acre urban park in downtown San Jose, including the development of an outdoor performing arts pavilion (Levitt Pavilion). Potential physical changes include, but not limited to: construction of the Levitt Pavilion, removal or relocation of existing historical markers and fountains, removal and replacement of non-Heritage Trees, hardscape improvements, construction of structures for restrooms and commercial uses, and the temporary or permanent closure of N. 2nd Street to private vehicles. Potential programmatic changes include music and performing arts events, the introduction of commercial uses into the park, street performers, festivals, and farmers markets. The final physical park design will be determined through a design competition.
