This is going to be the "front door" of downtown San Jose, the place where all the transit options will arrive in town. Good news: no new parking lots! Transit and bikes are the main goal. Bad news: fugly :(

Doesn't no new parking lots mean there will be a bigger parking problem?

At the meeting, SAP Center’s owners also voiced cautious support for the progressive transportation policies being crafted by San Jose’s Department of Transportation.

“Sharks Sports and Entertainment continues to be very supportive of the goals of the Diridon Plan,” said Sean Morley, representing the 19,200-seat SAP Center’s largest tenant, “although the organization still has concerns about the adequate supply of parking in the plan over time.”

“The Sharks look forward to working with the City and all the other stakeholders on the Transportation Management Association,” said Morley.
