Urban Catalyst has purchased the final parcel needed for the Icon/Echo master plan in Downtown San Jose. The sale comes just over a month after the developer revealed plans to change the office component to housing, increasing the potential housing capacity from a few hundred to over one thousand units. New renderings shared by Urban Catalyst provide a preliminary glimpse at the design.
Urban Catalyst is now considering adjusting plans for Icon/Echo by replacing the office component with more housing in Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County. The plan was floated by the developer founder, Erik Hayden, and reported by George Avalos for the Bay Area News Group. If altered, Icon/Echo could create over a thousand units from the two-acre parcel.
Urban Catalyst is preparing for vertical construction on Keystone, their extended-stay hotel at 495 West San Carlos Street in San Jose by Diridon Station. The eight-story Marriott TowneSuites Hotel is the only of its type under construction in the city, responding to demand from the city’s construction industry, conferences, and concerts. Completion is expected by 2025.
A new mixed-use project has received approval for development at 147 East Santa Clara Street in downtown San Jose. The project proposal includes the construction of two buildings offering office and residential spaces. Urban Catalyst, a premier Silicon Valley real estate equity fund, is the project developer. WRNS Studios is the project architect, and GLS Architecture + Landscape is the landscape architect.
The San Jose Planning Commission is scheduled to review updated plans for the Icon-Echo mixed-use development in Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County.
