Document Description
Update of the Downtown Strategy 2000 to be consistent with the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan, including an update of residential capacity and a revision of development phasing to extend the horizon (buildout) year to 2040. The proposed Downtown Strategy 2040 will maintain the office, retail, and hotel room capacities of Downtown Strategy 2000 (11.2 million sf office, 1.4 million sf retail, and 3,600 hotel rooms), but would increase the residential development capacity in the downtown area by up to 4,000 additional units (from 10,360 in the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan to up to 14,360). The update would also explore the following potential changes: an increase in the area covered by the Downtown boundary along 2 blocks along N. 4th St. (between St. John and Julian) and the identification of "Jobs Priority Areas" near the future BART sta.
