South Bascom (North)
The South Bascom (North) Urban Village is currently an existing a commercial corridor located in western San Jose. This commercial corridor is home to some key employment centers such as the Valley Medical Center and the San Jose City College which are both located in the norther section of the Urban Village near Highway 280. While there are a number of existing commercial and retail oriented uses many of the buildings that house these uses are inconsistent with the urban form associated with Urban Villages. Additionally, with the Bascom VTA Light Rail stop located at the southern end of the Urban Village this corridor is an ideal location for a mixture of new and intensified commercial and residential uses.
