Cisco Systems Inc. is in the process of obtaining zoning for a planned 2.3 million-sf office and R&D facility on 153 acres in the Alviso community of North San Jose. About 10 buildings are planned, with construction occuring in two phases: 1.6 million sf in phase one, and 600,000 sf in phase two.

Groundbreaking, contingent upon approval by the San Jose City Council, could begin in late spring or early summer 2000, with occupancy 16 months later. Construction costs are estimated at $575 million.
