High speed rail and BART are coming to San Jose bringing dramatic change to the Diridon Station area. Add a ball park, retail and commerce and you have a rich mix. Art will be an important part of making it vibrant,creating delight, linking the station to downtown, and reconnecting residents to the rivers.
