Takara Bio plans revamp of north San Jose campus

SAN JOSE — Takara Bio USA, on the heels of its purchase this year of two big office buildings in north San Jose, has crafted plans to create a campus on its newly bought property.

The company is eyeing the development of an enclosed courtyard that effectively will create a unified complex and a link between the office buildings the company bought in May in north San Jose, according to preliminary plans on file at the city Planning Department.

The development proposal also calls for the construction of two canopies. One canopy will be built at what will be the main entrance for the evolving mini-campus. The other will be at a staff entrance.

The efforts are a reminder that some tech and biotech companies don’t necessarily intend for their employees to work from remote locations on a permanent basis, despite the uncertainties ushered in by the coronavirus.
