Preliminary permits have been filed for a new subdivision at 330 Burnett Avenue in Morgan Hill, Santa Clara County. The project will replace over a hundred acres of nurseries and agricultural land with 844 homes. Local developer Borello Asset Management is responsible for the application.

The project will yield just over 2.5 million square feet of housing, with 213,00 square feet in the three apartments and 2.29 million square feet across 675 individual homes. Of the 844 units, 169 will be designated as affordable to low-income households. The market-rate homes will each have a private garage, and three surface parking lots will be added for the affordable apartment structures.

Bassenian Lagoni Architects is responsible for the design. Illustrations show plain residential architecture with all structures clad with a mix of board and batten fiber cement, stucco, stone veneer, and shingle roofing. The Peebles Burnett site map shows twelve separate parks, with four larger open spaces and eight necklace pathways.

Borello Asset Management is a multi-family investment developer led by the Borello family. The team will oversee the merger of 15 properties, ranging from 1.8 to 21.8 acres. Demolition will be required for 11 existing homes.

The 131.9-acre property is located along Burnett Avenue and Pebbles Avenue, close to Highway 101 and the Sobrato High School. Future residents will be over half an hour from the Morgan Hill Caltrain station by bus or 14 minutes via bicycle. The estimated cost and timeline for construction have yet to be established.

    How can it take more than twice as long to get to the train station by bus than by bicycle? Very few bike commuters go more than 12 miles an hour. So, that means the train is going 5 or 6 mph???? Are you sure you didn’t reverse those numbers?

      Afraid it’s accurate, the circuitous bus route travels significantly more distance than a direct trip on bike.

    The traffic getting in and out of Sobrato HS is already a traffic nightmare…. There is only one street entrance/exit for Sobrato. This is going to make it worse!!!! Fix the problem with the traffic before building more homes😠😠

  3. And where will the needed water and other resources come from?
    Residents have been asked for years to cut back but then something like this gets approved.
    Additional infrastructure improvements?
    Additional need schools?
    And using ag land for this? I seem to remember a high school being proposed but denied because it was on ag land. Even though the developer was willing to set aside an equal amount of age land for offset.

    This town needs an enema.

  4. The traffic will be a big problem. Fix it before more traffic building more houses

    Who cares what locals think especially those in a senior mobilehome park right next to Sobrata high school, who need safety and easy access to doctors, hospitals, etc.

  6. They should stretch Butterfield all the way down to Burnet before this happens.

  7. This will cause a hazard if there is ever an emergency to get out. There is only one road in and out and already backed up for a mile during school hours. There is no way this area can support growth of this magnitude. What ever happened to Morgan hills moratorium on building restrictions?
