Downtown Strategy 2040
File No. PP15-102
An update of the Downtown Strategy 2000 plan and Environmental Impact Report to be consistent with the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan, including an update of residential capacity and revised development phasing to extend the horizon (buildout) year to 2040. The proposed Downtown Strategy 2040 will maintain the office, retail, and hotel room capacities of the Downtown Strategy 2000 (11.2 million sq. ft. office, 1.4 million sq. ft. retail, and 3,600 hotel rooms), but would increase the residential capacity the the downtown area by up to 4,000 additional units (from 10,360 in the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan up to 14,360 units). This update would also explore other changes to the Downtown Strategy, including an increase in the area covered by the Strategy to include two blocks on the east side of N. 4th Street between Julian Street and St. John Street and the identification of Jobs Priority Areas to prioritize the development of commercial and office uses near the proposed Downtown BART station.
