West San Carlos Street
West San Carlos Street
The West San Carlos street corridor is located in western San Jose running between Highway 880 / 17 and Downtown San Jose. Having been developed as a major suburban car-oriented arterial roadway in the 1950s and 1960s, West San Carlos Street acts a prime connecting route to Downtown San Jose. Many of the low intensity car-oriented land uses and mid-century modern architectural elements still exist and are now becoming intermixed with more current developments that have started to redefine the area.


Urban Village Boundaries

The West San Carlos Urban Village extends along West San Carlos Street from roughly Highway 880 / 17 to Sunol Street and includes a portion of Bascom Avenue from Olive Avenue to Scott Street.
