The proposal for 21267 Stevens Creek Boulevard expects to add 267 new apartments into the Silicon Valley housing market in Cupertino, Santa Clara County. Recent reporting by the Bay Area News Group has revealed that the project expects to break ground by the Fall of this year and would replace a retail center with new market-rate and affordable housing for seniors living in the hometown to the Foster + Partners-designed Apple headquarters. KT Urban and The Pacific Companies is responsible for the development.
The full-block development will produce 267 housing units and 27 memory care rooms across eighteen structures 179 units will be dedicated for senior residents. The residential composition is divided between three standards, single-family townhomes and row houses, market-rate senior housing, and below-market-rate senior housing.
All 88 single-family dwellings offer three bedrooms per unit and parking for 208 vehicles, well above the 132-lot requirement. The 18 rowhouses will span three structures and 45,090 square feet, with 34,250 square feet for residential use and 10,840 square feet for parking. The 70 townhomes extend across thirteen buildings with 179,310 square feet of built area, with 139,860 square feet for residential use and 39,450 square feet for parking.
The two larger apartment buildings for senior housing will be built on the lot corner along Stevens Creek Boulevard and Mary Avenue. The 190,810 square foot Building one will include 158 units, of which 27 will be for memory care, on top of 17,600 square feet of ground-level retail. Building two will offer 48 below-market-rate units for seniors across 47,760 square feet, with 29 units dedicated to very-low-income households and 19 for low-income households. A ground-level space will offer 2,400 square feet for local retail.
Residential amenities offer an on-site library, a theater, a roof deck view of the town skyline, and a fitness center geared for all ages. Landscaped courts and planters will be designed by the Portland-based landscape architecture firm, Place.
C2K Architecture is responsible for the design. The project rises between three and six floors, with the aesthetic reflecting the area’s history of Spanish colonization. The facade will be clad with white stucco and plaster detailing. The lighting fixtures, windows, wood doors, and red roof tiles all function as decorative features within the Spanish style.
Kimley Horn is responsible for civil engineering. The proposal requires the demolition of the Oaks, a 71,250 square foot retail center adjacent to the De Anza College campus, and the sprawling Glenbrook Apartments housing complex.
