Preliminary planning permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use development replacing a single-story Chuck E. Cheese location at 1371 Kooser Road in the Cambrian neighborhood in southern San Jose. The proposal is expected to offer 100% affordable multifamily apartments opposite the Princeton Plaza Mall. Affirmed Housing is responsible for the application.
The six-story building will produce 189 new low-income housing units into the Bay Area housing market. Details are not yet available for the Area Median Income level the project will target or if the apartments will be rental or for sale. The ground level will include residential amenities and 2,000 square feet of commercial retail. Parking will be included on-site for over a hundred vehicles.
Togawa Smith Martin is listed as the project architect, though detailed illustrations have not been released.
The property is by the intersection between Route 85 and Almaden Expressway. The mid-sized proposal is on the southern edge of San Jose, nearby several county parks. The Westfield Oakridge shopping mall is an eight-minute bicycle ride from the address. The area is serviced by the VTA’s 27 and 64B bus lines.
