Alan Hess, a reporter from the San Jose Mercury News stated that, “we really had no right to expect Santana Row would turn out this well. The vision was so far reaching, the commercial program so unconventional, the design so complex, the execution so painstaking…”

"Impeccably crafted with precision, this urban community is created with a depth of art, architecture and diversity that establishes a unique living, retail and culinary experience as in some of the most well known streets in the world. "

"Although there is a great deal of focus on the fundamentals of great street building such as; dimension, connection, place and variety, the complexity and integration of all facets of consideration make Santana Row a place with an original voice and a sense of authenticity that has been enthusiastically received by both customers and residents of the community."
