San Jose housing development planned near downtown includes no affordable units, limited parking

A proposed housing development along a key San Jose thoroughfare connecting the city’s downtown to its retail epicenter is expected to help transform the neighborhood into a bustling, urban corridor.

But neighbors — frustrated by the fallout of a larger building boom in their area — are pushing back against the latest proposal, which offers no affordable housing and only limited parking, exacerbating an already serious parking shortage.

About a dozen community members came out to a meeting Thursday night to offer their input on a plan to build two seven-story mixed-use buildings with a total of 173 for-sale condominium units, more than 20,000 square feet of retail and office space and 189 parking spots at 1530 West San Carlos St.
