Cornerstone Earth Group, Inc. is providing geotechnical and environmental consultation services for the Tamien Station Transit Oriented Development located in San Jose, CA. The proposed transit village, near a key rail stop, has been approved to receive millions of dollars in funding from the State of California.
The development will be built near intermodal passenger transportation, San Jose’s Tamien Station, just 10 blocks south of the city’s downtown. According to plans on file with city officials, the 6.7 acre site, which is primarily occupied by a parking lot and undeveloped land at this time, will be converted into a transit village consisting of 569 apartments. The project is being jointly developed by Republic Urban, Core Development and the Valley Transportation Authority.
The development is expected to consist of three 5-story residential buildings, amenity space, plus a ground-floor child-care center. The 569 apartments in the project are expected to consist of 434 market-rate residences and 135 affordable units. Some of the state funding will be used to subsidize transit-related amenities at the location, including bus shelters, improved lighting, and bike lockers at a new plaza on the east side of the station. Tamien Station is only a few rail stops away from the area’s main transit hub, Diridon Station.
