The Alquist Redevelopment is a planned, mixed-income, high-density workforce housing tower across from the Hammer Theatre along Downtown San José’s Paseo de San Antonio. With up to 1,000 units of housing, half for graduate students, faculty, and staff, this project can become the first major investment in SJSU’s comprehensive plan to make housing more accessible to the campus community.
Phase I, Visualized
The initial phase of the project comprises a complex rising upwards of 24 stories, or 300 feet, in downtown San José - all within walking distance to campus. The building would complement existing high-rises in the area and help complete the San José's skyline. Any future phases would entail subsequent study and development
