San Jose — Sites near the future BART station for public transport-oriented development, east of downtown San Jose, have the potential to sprout over 1,000 affordable homes.
An increasingly active developer, Roygbiv Real Estate Development has begun planning at the San Jose City Hall for the first major component of the project.
The first phase, called Residencias Arianna, consists of two large residential towers. One has 12 floors and the other has 10 floors.
According to a plan submitted to the city by Roygbiv Real Estate, Residencias Arrianna will house 430 homes, 241 in one building and 189 in the other.
The 430 units in the first phase of development are the 1298 Tripp Ave between North 26th Street and Wooster Avenue near the interchange between US Highway 101 and McKee Avenue. Will rise at.
The site is also within 800 meters of the upcoming 28th Street / Little Portugal BART station.
“This is a public transport oriented development,” said Loida Kirkley, CEO of Roygbiv Real Estate. “This includes affordable housing for ultra-low-income, low-income, and middle-income earners.”
According to Anderson Architects Principal Executive and Project Designer Kurt Anderson, once all three phases of the project have been built, the entire development will consist of 1,200 units.
Roygbiv Real Estate is actively planning at least four other tower projects to add if hundreds of homes are built in downtown San Jose.
Roygbiv proposes two residential skyscrapers near the existing Diridon Station, the other two will be built near the future San Jose BART Downtown Station, a short distance from City Hall.
According to the development proposal, the project near Little Portugal BART Station will include notable equipment in both of the two buildings in Phase 1.
A shared open area will be set up on the first floor of each building. Both buildings have a roof deck with a rally area. Fitness centers are planned for each building.
According to city documents, the two buildings each contain a studio, a combination of one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.
According to Google Maps, 1298 Trip Avenue housing development is approximately a 2-minute drive or an 8-minute walk from 28th Avenue / Little Portugal BART Station.
“Ariana residents can use BART to get to work throughout the Bay Area,” Kirkley said.
