Buildings In San Jose Studio Apartments Project Too Tall, Neighbors Say

“Go low” was the mantra repeated by residents who attended a public meeting last week to discuss an affordable housing project in San Jose’s Buena Vista neighborhood. Charities Housing, a nonprofit that manages and operates more than 1,000 affordable housing units throughout Silicon Valley, announced last summer it plans to build 82 affordable studio apartments on a 30,500-square-foot lot just off Meridian Avenue on Page Street. It would be the organization’s first affordable housing project to break ground in District 6 in almost 20 years; the last one was the 110-unit Penzione Esperanza building at Bird and Columbia avenues. About one-third of the studios’ tenants will be homeless individuals referred by the county; they’ll also receive on-site case management.
