Satellite Affordable Housing Associates has started construction on the eight-story apartment building at 500 Almaden Boulevard in Downtown San Jose. Once complete, the project will add low-income housing in a burgeoning intersection across the street from the 1.8 million square foot 280 Woz Way development and the two million square foot South Almaden Offices.
Downtown San Jose
A Santa Clara County Superior Court judge has ruled in favor of plans to demolish the brutalist bank structure at 199 Park Avenue in Downtown San Jose. While the verdict is not final, it is a significant step toward the construction of CityView Plaza, a 3.8-million square foot office proposal by the Jay Paul Company to revitalize the city block. If built, the development would reshape the block between Almaden Boulevard and South Market Street, central to the city’s urban core.
A new design iteration has been published for 17 East Santa Clara Street in Downtown San Jose, outlining facade changes and a future entrance for the city’s 2030 BART/VTA station. The proposal, to be called Eterna Tower, would add 200 new dwelling units to the Silicon Valley housing market. San Francisco-based ROYGBIV Real Estate Development is responsible for the project as the property owner.
Demolition permits have been filed 389 East Santa Clara Street in Downtown San Jose. The site is currently occupied by surface parking and the remaining elements of the church for the Our Lady of La Vang Parish, which was destroyed by a fire in 2012. Once the property is cleared, construction will begin on a new religious space for the Diocese of San Jose and Our Lady of La Vang Parish. The development project is expected to cost over $50 million.
Caltrain has proposed plans to develop office towers next to the San Jose downtown transit hub. The project proposal includes the development of an office complex adjacent to the Diridon train station. The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board, which governs Caltrain, is the property owner.
