A proposed $500 million, 1.6-million-sf facelift of downtown San Jose, Calif., is being accompanied by a high-cost marketing campaign.

The San Jose Redevelopment Agency plans to spend $70,000 on the campaign, which kicks off next month. It will include producing and distributing a five-minute promotional videotape, CD-ROMs and brochures to local and national real estate developers.

The effort follows a June recommendation by Washington, D.C.-based group Urban Land Institute that city officials work with the redevelopment agency to promote the project.
