The site previously contained a 21,000 sf commercial/retail building, but it was damaged by a fire in 2016; the remnants of the building were demolished and removed from the site in April 2017.
The project would demolish the existing restaurant, remove six non-Heritage trees, and construct a mixed-use development with 66 residential units and 9,330 sf of retail. The CT zoning designation allows commercial uses, but does not allow housing as a permitted or conditional use (Santa Clara City code chapter 18.38). A planned development rezoning is proposed as part of the project to allow housing on the site.
