After more than five years of work with the City of San Jose and listening closely to community comments and concerns, Kimco Realty (previously Weingarten) has dramatically re-envisioned the future of Cambrian Park Plaza Shopping Center. Guided by new City design goals and a concept plan generated by neighbors, we have created an innovative new Signature Project for Cambrian – a truly mixed-use village that will become the heart of the community.
Cambrian Mixed-Use Village includes:
- Public Open Space – four acres of public open space, including a community plaza and central park with an amphitheater
- Building 1 – Mixed-use with 305 podium apartments and over 50,000 s.f. of commercial/retail space, organized around a community plaza with underground parking (six stories)
- Building 2 – 229 room hotel with underground parking and outdoor restaurant decks facing the central park (five stories)
- Building 3 – 110 bed assisted senior living facility plus 50 independent living units, all connected to the central park with underground parking (five stories)
- Housing – 25 Townhomes along Union Avenue (three stories) and 48 single-family homes near existing residents (two and three stories), 27 of which have accessory dwelling units (ADUs)
- Dedicated, raised bike lanes along Union and Camden, and 209 bike parking spaces.
