With fast-moving approvals, builder’s remedies, and changing plans, San Jose’s housing landscape could be changing dramatically to address the city’s housing shortfalls.

Here are a few of the housing projects on the horizon:

  • East Tasman + Baypointe drives | 100 affordable homes | Construction timeline pending | This would replace an older office and research building.
  • The Alameda, near SAP Center | 168 affordable homes | Funding secured, construction timeline pending | This would convert an already existing apartment complex into affordable housing.
  • Hillsdale + Newberry avenues | 160 affordable, multi-family units | Construction timeline pending | This development would replace an empty strip mall.
  • East Brokaw Road + Junction Avenue | 982 market-rate with 247 affordable units | Construction timeline pending | This would replace the old Fry’s Building that was initially slated for a tech campus.
  • East Santa Clara + North Fourth streets | 600+ market-rate units | Funding to be secured by 2024, with construction pending | Developer Urban Catalyst is pivoting from offices to housing at the current Chevron site.

We’ll keep you updated as these plans continue to develop.
