“…Santana Row is the heart and soul of Silicon Valley…
…Santana Row is enlightened commercialism, commerce that realizes it does its best when it is part of the daily life of shopping, relaxing and doing business…
…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…”
