San Jose City Council is poised to give final approval to construct the 80-acre Downtown West urban development by Google. The proposal would reshape a significant portion of the Diridon Station Area Plan in Downtown San Jose by replacing surface parking and low-density blocks around the SAP Center with a higher density of housing, offices, and retail. The meeting will be held today, starting at 6 PM.

The San Francisco Planning Department is starting to circulate public notices regarding the mid-June meeting for the 27-story proposal for 469 Stevenson Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The proposal hopes to utilize the State Density Bonus program to create nearly five hundred apartments, of which a portion will be affordable. San Francisco-based BUILD is the project developer.
The City of Oakland’s Planning Department is scheduled today to review the preliminary development plans and receive public comment about the mixed-use proposal around the Lake Merritt BART Station in Downtown Oakland. The proposal would reshape two city blocks at 51 9th Street and 107 8th Street with apartments, office space, retail, open space, and community amenities. The prolific Strada Investment Group and the Oakland-based East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation are responsible through a joint venture.
Proposed modifications to the redevelopment plan give minor alterations to the approved mixed-use project of 3333 California Street in Laurel Heights, San Francisco. The development will replace the existing UCSF Laurel Heights property with 752 new apartments, a quarter of which will be affordable housing, retail, and more. The changes expand Euclid Green’s public open space by not building one duplex townhome, modifications to the Presidio Steps, and an adjustment to the project tree count. Prado Group is the project developer.
Strada has filed a preliminary project assessment permit for a 347-foot tall mixed-use tower with affordable housing at 395 3rd Street in SoMa, San Francisco. The application comes as breaking news for a previously unreported project. If approved as is, Strada would add 559 new units to the city’s housing market. According to planning documents, construction is estimated to cost $200 million.
