Affordable homes, some for the homeless, eyed near San Jose malls



PATH Ventures, which specializes in affordable homes, has proposed a residential development that would replace some retail buildings on West San Carlos Street in San Jose.


The new residential development would sprout at the corner of West San Carlos Street and Cleveland Avenue, just east of Interstate 880 and a short distance from Valley Fair mall and Santana Row, according to documents filed with city planners.


“PATH Villas at West San Carlos will be a 94-unit affordable, mixed-income housing development serving families in the West San Carlos Urban Village Plan area,” PATH Ventures stated in documents on file with the city’s planning department.


The proposed development might be able to extend its mission beyond affordable housing by including the homeless, PATH Ventures indicated in the planning proposal.

The residences in the affordable development would be built on five parcels with addresses that include 1921 W. San Carlos St., 1927 W. San Carlos St., and 40 Cleveland Ave., the city planning files show.


PATH Villas will also offer a retail component.
