The Altera Corporate campus project consists of five buildings and a parking garage on 25 acres located on Innovation Drive in the “Golden Triangle” business district of San Jose.

The site is located in Northern San Jose’s “Special Studies” flood plain area, and required the preparation of a flood study using computer modeling of theoretical flooding. The buildings were elevated above 100-year flooding elevations while the parking lots were depressed to allow flood waters to pass through the site.
