The Communications Hill project site is generally located on the prominent hilly area between Highway 87 and Monterey Road/Union Pacific Railroad tracks, northerly of Hillsdale Avenue and southeasterly of Curtner Avenue in City Council District 7 south of Downtown San José.
The entire project is a mixed use development for up to 2,200 residential units (single-family and multi-family), up to 67,500 square feet of commercial/retail uses, 55 acres of industrial park uses, public parks, open space, trails, streets, stormwater facilities, and other associated supporting infrastructure on approximately 332 gross acres, as allowed within the Communications Hill Specific Plan Area.
A circumnavigating trail system will offer views of the valley, link neighborhood parks and extend to the City's existing trail network with a connection to the Highway 87 Bikeway. The trail system will develop in phases as neighborhoods are built on the hill.
A 0.6-mile reach of trail is open on the hill - it extends from Grassina Street to Communications Hill Boulevard.
Planned development will provide about 5 new miles of trails, and extend the trail system from the Hill to the Highway 87 Bikeway (west side of hill).
Visit the City's Planning Department website on this project for planning documents.
Communications Hill trails are not part of a local, state or nationally designated system.
