Document Description
Update of the Downtown Strategy 2000 to be consistent with the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan, including an update of residential and *office capacity* and a revision of development phasing to extend the horizon (buildout) year to 2040. The proposed Downtown Strategy 2040 will maintain the retail and hotel room capacities of Downtown Strategy 2000 (1.4 million sq. ft. retail and 3,600 hotel rooms), but would increase the residential capacity in the downtown area by up to 4,000 additional units (from 10,360 in the 2040 General Plan to up to 14,360) and office capacity* by up to 3 million sf from 11.2 to 14.2 million sf. The update also includes the following potential changes: an expansion of the Downtown boundaries along the east side of North 4th St between St. John and Julian St, and identification of Employment Priority Areas near future BART station(s), and changing land use designations on specific parcels in the Downtown Strategy 2040 bounded area.
