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.

Fourth and St. John streets: ECI2 North Third, LLC, the owner of the St. James Plaza building at 152 N. Third St., proposes to build a structure equal in height to City Hall. 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.

Amcal Equities and Swenson have begun construction on a student housing high-rise in downtown San Jose close to San Jose State University. The 260-unit, 1,039-bed off-campus housing will be on 1.5 acres on East San Carlos Street between South Second and South Third streets. 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. The apartments on the top penthouse floor will share an outdoor terrace with views of the city and the San Jose State University campus. It is expected to finish in 2020.
