How can a city encourage affordable housing residents to use transit and shared bikes and scooters more often? Results from…
The Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) is looking to build 328 apartments at the Blossom Hill light rail station in south San Jose, with revenue from the development to be used to fund transit operations. The apartments will be built on seven acres on Blossom Hill Road and Canoas Creek. The land is currently occupied by a parking lot for bus and light rail users and will be developed as part of the agency’s Joint Development program.
The program, in which the agency partners with cities and private developers, requires at least 20% of units be leased below market and reserved for low-income residents. But in this case there will be 89.
