Urban Catalyst files application for 497-unit building in San Jose
SAN JOSE – Urban Catalyst this week submitted an official request to city planners for a 497 home development in downtown San Jose, in partnership with local architect and entrepreneur Thang Do, CEO of Aedis Architects.
The Apollo Project (rendered above) will bring an 18-story residential skyscraper to 32 Stockton Ave., on the corner of West Santa Clara Street.
The Apollo project is not part of any of Urban Catalyst’s Opportunity Zone funds, which raise investor dollars for various developments in downtown San Jose.
The residential housing will be built in a key location in the city center, close to Diridon station, the SAP Center and the future Google mega-campus. The site is across from a Whole Foods store and a short walk from many businesses along the Alameda.
“The Apollo is another step in addressing the housing crisis in Silicon Valley,” said Erik Hayden, CEO and Managing Partner of Urban Catalyst. “When we build high-density residential units in a transit-oriented location, we are building to meet the needs of today and tomorrow.
In addition to its prime location, the Apollo will offer amenities. The property will include a spa, an infinity pool with a see-through bottom above the main entrance, a coworking space, and two separate rooftop lounges. And it will be built with a post-Covid world in mind.
“The Apollo will feature quiet workspaces designed for the new hybrid home work model,” said Josh Burroughs, chief operating officer and partner of Urban Catalyst. Burroughs said the project will also include retail space on the ground floor.
Said Do: “It’s such an important site in downtown San Jose, we wanted to create a building with a strong presence and a lot of vibrancy at street level. And, at the same time, an oasis of greenery on the pleasure terrace to serve residents.
