Very nice looking buildings, also want to point out this other issue. Housing which is needed for the 1,300 new jobs.

Nice buildings -- not your typical unsightly office park. Hopefully some of the additional employees will choose to live in the new housing being built around San Antonio Shopping Center, along El Camino and downtown. All of those locations are within easy biking distance of Intuit's campus.

It's exciting to live in a region with a dynamic economy, especially when so much of North America and Europe is stuck in the doldrums.

Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society has been working with Intuit, and the company has been responsive to our requests for bird-safe windows that minimize bird collisions, and for green roofs that are planted with the type of vegetation that birds can use for food. Intuit also considered the height of the buildings and how to avoid obstacles in the flight path of birds that migrate during the night.
Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society is looking forward to continue the conversation with Intuit. At this time, we have no complaints, only praise.
