File No. H15-047, T15-052, HP15-003, and V16-005

A Site Development for the construction of a residential apartment building with up to 308-units and 8,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space.  The proposed high rise building would be up to 262 feet in height, including architectural elements, mechanical equipment screens, and elevator shafts.  The primary entrance to the building lobby would be on South First Street and the leasing office would also be accessed from South First Street. A “bike kitchen” for bicycle parking and maintenance would be accessed from South Market Street.  Within the commercial space on South First Street, an interactive historical window display would be provided as a part of the retained 465/467 South First Street commercial building façade.  This display would occupy approximately 140 square feet of the ground floor. Parking would be provided on-site with up to three levels of subgrade parking and up to six parking levels above grade.  Vehicular access to the parking garage would be from a full access driveway on Market Street. Bicycle storage would also be provided on-site.

The 0.5-acre project site is located from 455 to 493 South First Street (specifically 455 South First Street, 465-467 South First Street, 460 South Market Street, 470 South Market Street, 480 South Market Street, and 493 South First Street) in the Central/Downtown Planning Area of San José. The project site is comprised of three parcels (APNs 264-30-089, -090, and -114) located between South First Street and South Market Street.
