Development permits have been filed for a new mixed-use building at 409 South Second Street in Downtown San Jose. The proposal includes a housing tower with rooftop amenities that may consist of an infinity pool, all set to sprout at the site of the old Bo Town restaurant in downtown San Jose. BoTown Residential is a 29-story housing high-rise in downtown San Jose with ground-floor retail at 409 and 425 S. Second Street. Concept and design are by James K.M. Cheng Architects and Steinberg Hart.
The residential high-rise will feature rooftop amenities, including an infinity-edge pool, barbecue pits, an amenity room for hosting events and parties with an attached deck, and a fitness center. Additional construction includes constructing a 7685 square feet non-residential space, demolishing a 5283 square feet building, and constructing 520 residential units.
The tower will consist of an approximate 6,400 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and housing amenities. An underground parking garage that will accommodate 194 parking spaces. Westbank and Dillabough have come together to work on this high-rise project in the SoFA district at the same location as a beloved Chinese restaurant called BoTown used to serve its customers, before closing for undisclosed reasons in 2019.
The neighborhood is a walk and bike-friendly location. The area is serviced by MUNI lines like 66, 68, 22, and 64 A. Date of completion has not been announced yet.
