A modern retail building with bold sculptural forms and colors

980 Winchester – Berry Retail Building

Shaped by its zoning and parking constraints, as well as a desire to create a memorable structure on one of San Jose’s busiest commercial thoroughfares, the Berry Building represents incremental progress towards the City’s goal of making Winchester Boulevard a more pedestrian-friendly street.

Unlike older developments on the Boulevard, the Berry Building holds the urban edge on both street frontages, with parking tucked away behind. At the same time, the bold sculptural forms and colors of the building address today’s auto-oriented reality, and provide excellent visibility for each of the retail tenants.
