Looks way better than the 2015 version. This one is completely separate from KT Urban, Equus (the owners, per article, so I was right for the record) is going at it themselves.

I heard that they are breaking ground soon. They removed/towed the cars in the lot and put up the fence like you said.

New Proposal in West San Jose

A Preliminary Review Application (File No. PRE17-143) was recently submitted at 375 S. Baywood Avenue for a 12-story, 65 unit multifamily building with underground parking on a 0.3 acre site. Currently the site has two existing single-family homes and could be developed with up to 75 units under the Urban Village land use designation.

This is just a ceremonial move, but the site prep should start soon.

If there's no heavy equipment on the scene, it may still be months from actually breaking ground.

South First and Reed streets: KT Urban proposes development of a 27-story, 285-unit property with 6,105 square feet of retail at 600 S. First St. in SoFA, where Garden City Construction office, a multi-unit residential building and parking lot are located KT Urban once again used C2k Architecture to draw plans for the now-titled Garden Gate Tower, and like the Axis, Silvery Towers and One South Market buildings before it, will be plated in glass. This building would have four levels of parking underground and three levels above. If built as proposed, it would stand 288 feet and would become the tallest building in San Jose. The 88 at 88 E. San Fernando St., is 286 feet.

Though mostly parking lot space currently, two houses on St. John Street would need to be razed and some rezoning is required before the 26-story, 285-foot building of 400 units (or 900 beds) can be approved. The designated downtown core zoning would need to be expanded a half block to include the development site.

The owner wants the building to add to the student housing supply at San Jose State University, said Erik Schoennauer, a planning consultant on the project. The project would include 8,400 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. ECI acquired the development parcel, along with the 152 N. Third St. building, in the same 2013 transaction.

The Graduate by AMCAL Swenson: 19-stories, 260 units (1,039 beds) for student housing, plus 14,700 square feet of retail space at Second and San Carlos streets. Ground-breaking scheduled for Oct. 4.
If we look at the development map on this site, the number of proposed projects is pretty big, my guess is many of these won't happen unless Google moves in by Diridon.

But it is nice to see 3 ground breakings, even though that is mostly a ceremonial move, I'm confident that The Graduate will start construction soon.

25,000 housing units in 5 years would mean that San Jose is building the most housing of any city in the Bay Area, even though it lacks jobs. I'm not opposed to building downtown and near some transit spots, but most building will lead to just more commuters from the city going north to MV, Sunnyvale, Cupertino or Palo Alto.

I hear what you're saying but we're also the biggest city in the Bay Area by far in terms of land area. It's not a matter of us building less, but for other cities in the area to build more. 25,000 is a lot of units but if it's dense multifamily housing with ground floor retail, and not suburban single family sprawl, the city will still get a net positive in tax dollars.

The 19-story L-shaped building will have 17 floors of apartments and student amenities and ground-floor retail. A three-story parking deck will offer an amenities deck. Community amenities include an exercise center, a swimming pool with spa and sundeck, barbecues, a picnic area and landscaping. The first floor of the structure will offer 14,750 SF of retail. The residential building will have three elevators, a management office, building-wide high-speed WiFi and internet, common areas for students, storage for as many as 575 bicycles and a bicycle repair station.

Silvery Towers - Oct 21, 2017







Up to the 20th and 21st floor. Looks like they are getting close to topping out.

Google’s downtown San Jose village “main” construction has 2025 time frame, property purchases continue

"Construction of Google’s massive village proposed for downtown San Jose is likely to begin about eight years from now, after BART and high-speed rail connections to Diridon Station are completed. The time frame, outlined in a city memo, is the first public indication of how long it’s likely to take before construction would begin on the project. The Google village would bring up to 20,000 employees of the tech giant to downtown San Jose if the plan moves forward."

Wow, these pictures give San Jose a denser vibe than most people are used to. It reminds me of SF's Mission Bay, so that's good to see. Wish the apartments were one or two floors taller though, we need all the units we can get in along transit lines!

Hopefully those parcels under construction on the edges of the frame is a continuation of this type of development?

Midtown has been building midrises for a while, or at least the early 00's. A few blocks away there is a 3 story apt building, followed by similar townhouses, and then a 4 story condo, built in 2001-2004. The building on the right on the picture started construction in 2006/2007, while the one on the left started in 2016, and just wrapping up. The height of the one on the right is 5 stories, which is when most developers started to go for that height, the one on the left is at 7 stories on the face facing San Carlos, which is the current highest height one can build using wood framing on top of a concrete podium.

Above that developers have to go to highrise construction techniques, which are significantly more expensive, and would likely want to go for the highest possible height at that point, probably 200-250'. I don't think we will see much in the middle except for FAA or city height limits, Century Towers at 12 stories tall is the only one that matches that right now, and economics matching up would be tough, since it seems they make more money the taller they go, if they already pass 90 feet.

It’s an exciting time for downtown San Jose, and we’re honored to be able to contribute to defining our city skyline through architecture that elevates the design dialogue in San Jose.”
