Just completing this month is the 84 unit expansion of the OAKWOOD APARTMENTS on Saratoga Avenue in San Jose. These three three-story buildings are on land acquired from the Moreland School District. The apartments are one and two bedrooms varying in size from 809 sf to 1075 sf. Avalon Bay Communities is the new owner of this large apartment complex.
Also completing this month is the major rehabilitation of the VILLA GARCIA low income housing project on Clarendon Street in San Jose. The eight buildings on the site each house 8 apartments which vary in size from 1 to 4 bedrooms. In addition to a complete façade uplift, all new interiors were installed, the site was re-landscaped, ADA accommodations were made throughout and solar carports were installed over the existing parking. This project is owned and operated by the Housing Authority of Santa Clara County.
