New building permits have been filed for three townhouse structures to be built at 1834 Worthington Circle as part of Santa Clara’s Agrihood showpiece development. The three buildings will contribute 36 new dwelling units as part of the multi-structure 361-unit project with an acre and a half of agricultural land. The development is a private-public partnership with the City of Santa Clara and Core Companies.
The development will yield 241,400 square feet for residential use between three types of housing in five buildings.
The fully affordable 165-unit senior housing apartments at 76 North Winchester Boulevard produces 82,600 square feet of residential use across a 150,050 square foot building. There will be 70 studios, 84 single-bedrooms, and 11 two-bedroom apartments. Parking for 99 vehicles and 12 bicycles will take up 32,000 square feet.
A second 237,000 square foot building will contain 160 apartments, of which 16 will be sold as affordable. The remaining 36 units spanning 69,760 square feet will be in the townhouses applied for today at 1834 Worthington Circle.
A single-story community center at 70 North Winchester Boulevard will provide residential amenities next to a cafe. The agricultural area on-site includes farmland, orchards, an olive grove, and an herb garden. Residents will have various amenities, including an event lawn, dog park, fitness space, and outdoor lounging and dining areas.
The project is nearby the Winchester Mystery Housing and the growing Santana Row district. New and proposed construction has established the area as a hub for apartments, shopping, restaurants, and commercial offices.
The project has an estimated cost of $85 million, funded partially with $60 million in subsidies. Construction is expected to take two to three years from groundbreaking.
