The project includes development of a multifamily apartment building with ground floor neighborhood-oriented retail with two design options proposed: (1) Option 1: Traditional Multi-Family Development and (2) Option 2: Co-Living Community Option. 

  • Option 1: Traditional Multi-Family Development – Development of a multi-family apartment building with up to 290 residential units and approximately 4,800 square feet of ground floor neighborhood oriented retail area. The proposed development would include approximately 12,502 square feet of private open space (e.g., balconies) and approximately 4,713 square-feet of common open space. The total building area is approximately 513,333 square feet.
  • Option 2: Co-Living Community Option – Development of up to 850 bedrooms in a Co-Living Community configuration with a combined total of approximately 425,897 square feet (including open space areas). The ground level will include approximately 6,000 square feet of retail, lobby and a loading area.

Both options propose a development of a 27-floor building with a maximum height of approximately 282 feet. The buildings would have a similar footprint and design with the exception of some minor differences in the ground floor layout. Both options would also include the demolition of an existing two-story residential building (on the City’s Historic Resources Inventory), façade treatment to an existing single-story brick office building, and relocation of an on-site neon sign to the roof of the proposed development.

Location: The 0.42-acre Project site is on the southeast corner of South 1st Street and East Reed Street in the City of San José. The site is located on two parcels (APNs 472-26-089 and 472-26-090).
