Our goal for the development of 525 N. Capitol Ave is to create a culturally-specific affordable housing community for displaced and longtime residents of East San Jose, and be a permanent housing solution for the formerly and chronically homeless, veterans, persons with disabilities, seniors, persons living with disabilities, and other low-income families and individuals.

A new building at 525 N. Capitol Avenue will provide 160 affordable homes for low-income families, persons with disabilities, veterans, and formerly homeless individuals. The developers are committed to integrating this housing and the future tenants into the neighborhood.

The ground floor of the development will include 4,000 – 5,500 square feet of personal enrichment space neighborhood-serving commercial space, resident services and property management offices, a lobby and common area as well as bike parking, car parking, and a communal outdoor courtyard. The development will leverage existing community assets, including nonprofit partner Veggielution. Veggielution will distribute healthy food sourced from its local community farm and operate a commercial kitchen out of the ground floor commercial space, with employment opportunities for tenants and local residents.

Join the meeting to learn more about the project, hear how past community input has informed the design, and ask questions. We will also provide information about the construction timeline at this meeting. This event will be hosted online via Zoom with closed captions and the option to call in by telephone.

Please RSVP, and share your language and accessibility needs during registration by July 5th so that we can provide interpreters as needed. Zoom information is accessible in your email once you register.
