About our San Jose Strategy

As San Jose faces tremendous population growth, Knight is working to support the urbanization of a traditionally sprawling city with a specific focus on Central San Jose. Our investments tap into the region’s creative energy and disruptive history to accelerate the city’s significance as a well-connected, transport-accessible hub for culture and innovation in the South Bay. 

Working with partners in the public and private sectors, we support a range of projects from prototypes and pop-ups to in-depth research and sustained organizational support.
