mercado600x410 The Mercado Shopping Center is a 24 acre retail development located on Mission College Boulevard in Santa Clara, adjacent to Mission College. The project consists of six buildings totaling 207,000 square feet.  Major tenants included an AMC 20 Theater, TJ Max N’ More, a Micro Center computer store, and several restaurants.  

The public infrastructure improvements were funded by the creation of an assessment district.  Public improvements included frontage street improvements, all utilities, and approximately 500,000 cubic yards of fill to bring the building pads above flooding elevation.  The project included subdivision of the 136 acre tract of land owned by Mission College in order to create the Mercado parcel.
