New San Jose project of 500-plus homes would create two big housing towers

SAN JOSE — A residential development of more than 500 homes proposed for a San Jose surface parking lot would consist of two housing highrises that would tower over the office buildings in the vicinity, new plans show.

The project would be built at 1737 N. First St. in San Jose at a parking lot tucked away in a north San Jose area that’s dotted with the operations and future sites of a number of tech titans.

Pacific Resources Stevenson, the owner of the site, which also includes a six-story office building that totals 84,500 square feet, filed the preliminary plans for the residential development.

The project would be about 12 stories high, a review of the plans filed with the city show.

The housing development would feature two towers with 10 levels of housing that would sit atop a podium that would be two stories high.

The office buildings in the vicinity are about six to eight stories high, which means the project would be one of the landmarks in the area.

The residences would sit atop a parking structure. The buildings would be connected with amenity spaces totaling 10,500 square feet, the plans show.

The amenities would include a clubhouse, according to the plans on file with the city.

In addition, some open spaces would be included in the project, the preliminary proposal shows.

The homes would consist of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.

The development of housing in some sections of north San Jose makes sense because projects of this type put residences near workplaces, Bob Staedler, principal executive with Silicon Valley Synergy, said in a previous interview with this news organization.

“San Jose needs to focus on putting housing near existing tech hubs,” Staedler said. “The North First corridor has a lot of untapped housing potential. Having housing near jobs allows for employees to walk and bike to work and reduce car trips.”
