ADOBE | San Jose, CA

Jason Schlutt was asked to lead the construction project of Adobe’s 18-story Almaden Tower in order to solidify the company’s presence in downtown San Jose. Despite tight site logistics and multiple city agency involvement, this project became a staple in the skyline of downtown San Jose.

  • 200,000 square feet of structured parking space (below and above ground)
  • State of the art Customer Briefing Center

How Compass Solutions Created a Raving Fan!

In order to build a ground up tower in an urban area, communication with neighboring property owners and leadership with city agencies is key. Jason took on this challenge as his first high rise development in downtown San Jose. The result was the completion of Adobe’s real estate presence along with the creation of Raving Fans within Adobe’s real estate department—who would later ask Jason, and Compass Solutions, to develop other ground-up projects in Silicon Valley.
