Building permits have been filed for 350 Chastain Place, a seven-story residential building in Gateway Crossings, Santa Clara. The 407-unit permit is for the first building in Gateway Crossings, a five-structure proposal with housing, retail, public open space, and a new hotel across from the San Jose International Airport and Santa Clara Caltrain/future BART Station. Holland Partner Group is responsible for the development after leasing the property from Hunter Properties.
Holland Partner Group penned the 99-year lease with Hunter Properties to build the 725 apartments in phase one of Gateway Crossings. As of now, the full development is to be split between two construction phases. At built-out, Gateway Crossings will create 1,565 apartments, 225 hotel guest rooms, over 95,000 square feet of parkland, and 45,000 square feet of retail.
350 Chastain Place will rise 79 feet tall to yield 371,200 square feet for residential use, 11,300 square feet of retail, and 11,700 square feet of on-site amenities. Apartments will average 912 square feet and include 38 studios, 195 one-bedrooms, 160 two-bedrooms, and 14 three-bedroom units. The structure consists of two floors for 643-car garage and parking for 204 bicycles. Of the 407 units, 73 will be designated as affordable housing. Residential amenities will include a courtyard and seating around a communal pool.
MVE + Partners is responsible for the design, with Petersen Studio in charge of landscape architecture. The facades are articulated with thin bricks, composite siding, and painted smooth-finish stucco. The form is divided into three separate sections. Each has a slightly different style treatment that will create a gradient from one end to the other for greater contrast between massing to improve the pedestrian experience.
Phase one will see the construction of 350 Chastain Place beside the 318-unit Building One. Along with 725 apartments, there will be 16,600 square feet of retail, 22,500 square feet of residential amenities, and parking for 1,108 vehicles.
Santa Clara approved the entitled project in July of 2019. The buildings will rise beside Hunter Properties’ Coleman Highline development, a 1.5 million square foot office and hotel project with phase one already complete.
Construction is expected to start soon, with an estimated timeline not yet shared.
