In 2018, Green Republic Blossom Hill LLC was chosen by VTA to create a vibrant, mixed-income, transit-oriented development at the Blossom Hill VTA station.
On April 15th, 2020, Green Republic submitted a development application to the City of San Jose for a Signature Project in the Blossom Hill/Snell Urban Village consisting of the following:
The goal of the Project is to create a vibrant transit-oriented development for residents, VTA riders and the neighboring community to enjoy.
Republic at Blossom Hill will feature:
We are also actively exploring opportunities to create additional community benefits and further enhance VTA ridership and increase alternative means of transportation. We welcome your input.
Proposed Site Plan from April 15, 2020 Submittal
After construction, there will be approximately 212 parking spots for VTA transit riders. Evening and/or overflow parking for residents in the VTA transit parking lot is being explored with VTA.
Parking for the affordable and market-rate residents and retail consumers will be accommodated in approximately 300 parking spaces in the market-rate building. Careful consideration is being given to maximize parking efficiencies and reduce vehicle dependence through unbundled parking and other transportation demand strategies.
The Project proposes to relocate the existing VTA bus stop to Blossom Hill Road to eliminate the large on-site bus access loop, to increase the efficiency of the parking lot, and to allow for more parking spaces in a smaller footprint. The new bus stop will include a bus duck out and VTA shelter in front of the mixed-use building and a new bus stop on the opposite side of Blossom Hill Road.
The Project also proposes to connect Blossom Hill Road to the Blossom Hill VTA station by improving Canoas Creek and creating a Class A bike trail. On-site improvements would also include significant landscaping, lighting and hardscape improvements to enhance the station and make it more attractive, inviting and pleasant.
Green Republic is planning to work with local artists and providers to commission public art and enhanced wayfinding.
