Surprise choice? BART project command center lands in unexpected San Jose location

Here is a response from Scott Knies, SJDA Executive Director, to VTA's decision to locate its BART offices three miles from downtown instead of downtown, where two of four stations will be built.

"It is unconscionable VTA didn't lease their BART offices downtown.  There were plenty of economical B building options downtown instead of three miles away at the airport.  VTA staff and consultants should be right on top of the subway construction for seven years like the rest of us.  VTA did not walk their talk on this one.
