East Santa Clara Street Project
This urban village project will transform more than a city block along the eastern stretch of Downtown San Jose’s main avenue. The project will provide much-needed housing, be the future home of the Santa Clara Housing Authority office, and activate the street for residents and neighbors alike.View Brochure
About the Project
We invite community members to learn about the project and thank you for your participation.
The Santa Clara County Housing Authority (SCCHA), with our consultant David Baker Architects, has submitted proposals to the City for the development of the portion of the former San José Hospital site on East Santa Clara Street at 14th Street. The planned program includes several affordable housing developments, ground floor retail, and open space.
This proposal previously included plans for a new office building for the Housing Authority. However, the Housing Authority has since purchased an existing office building at an alternative site in North San Jose. Based on input from the City of San Jose during our preliminary review process, we are excited to develop two additional housing projects where the previous office building was located. These projects will provide additional affordable homes to help address the County’s housing crisis.
The site is located between East Santa Clara, East Saint John, 14th Street and the former 15th Street corridor. It also includes a smaller site on the north side of East Saint John between 15th Street and 16th Street.
