Downtown San Jose housing project may sprout near Google village site

Residential development could replace downtown restaurant

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Preliminary city plans show that dozens of apartments could sprout on a downtown San Jose site near the footprint of Google’s proposed transit village — potentially replacing a restaurant in the process.

According to the plans on file at San Jose City Hall, the proposed housing development would result in an eight-story apartment building at the intersection of San Carlos and Josefa streets.

According to city documents, the development would result in the construction of approximately 90 apartments.

The proposed development site is about a block away from the southern footprint of Google’s proposed mixed-use transit-oriented neighborhood, which is currently on hold while its development timeline is reassessed.

The housing development would be constructed on adjacent parcels at 500 W. San Carlos St. and 323 Josefa St.

According to Google Maps, the residential redevelopment site is currently occupied by the taco restaurant Con Sabor a Mexico and a former used car lot.

According to the project plans, the housing development would also include 2,670 square feet of ground-floor retail.

The development plans on file are merely a preliminary proposal being floated in order to solicit feedback and reactions from San Jose politicians, city planners, and local residents. As a result, the proposal is subject to change.
