San Jose — The long-awaited refurbishment will begin within a few weeks at the historic Bank of Italy Tower in downtown San Jose. The renovation will include a new external staircase with a garden terrace.

The refurbishment is being carried out by a real estate alliance between Canada-based global developer Westbank and San Jose-based developer Gary Dillabough and Jeff Arrillaga.

Dila Boo, Principal Executive of the Urban Community, said:

The upgrade is a renovation of the building up, down, left and right, including a new staircase on the south side of the tower. It is located on 12 S. First St. next to East Santa. Clara Street.

The start of the refurbishment was delayed due to the significant amount of repair work required within the building to address the traditional asbestos problem.

The repair work is now almost complete, but it took longer to complete than the developers initially estimated.

“There was more improvement than we expected,” says Dillabough. “Currently, the repair work is completed.”
