SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) – Google is one step closer to building a village in San Jose.

The city’s planning commission agreed Wednesday night on the company’s proposed new 80-acre campus.

The company plans to use and develop the area west of Highway- 87 in San Jose. 

The project includes 200 million dollars to help jumpstart the local economy.

This plan includes 4,000 housing units, 15 acres of open space, 7-point-three million square feet of office space and room for small businesses and restaurants. 

Google is also providing grants for programs that can help San Jose residents get on a career track for secure good-paying jobs. 

The project is not a reality just yet. 

There will be a final hearing before the city council scheduled for May 25th.
