Catalyze SV Celebrates San Jose’s Approval of Meridian Project

Alex Shoor had Tuesday’s San Jose City Council meeting streaming live in the background of his home all day, eagerly awaiting a decision on the 259 Meridian project—which didn’t come up for a vote until the 6 o’ clock hour.

In a unanimous vote, the 11-member governing body approved the mixed-use, micro-unit housing development slated for Midtown.

The project by Strangis Properties and LPMD Architects begins with the demolition of three existing commercial buildings—comprising a combined 19,000 square feet—and a surface parking lot, which would be replaced with 226 residential units and about 1,400 square feet of ground-floor commercial space at 259 Meridian Ave.

The proposed development is one of the first that fits into the city’s West San Carlos Urban Village Plan, a blueprint for future growth that features pedestrian and bike-friendly pathways, easy access to public transit and sustainably dense development.
