San Jose project would add offices, retail, 582 homes

Nearly 600 homes and about 300,000 square feet of offices would sprout in west San Jose on Stevens Creek Boulevard under a plan for a new urban village proposed by Fortbay, a Bay Area developer.

The project would be located at 4300 Stevens Creek Blvd., currently a low-slung complex with a collection of offices and retail.

“We feel the market out there is strong,” Tom deRegt, one of the principal executives with Fortbay, said in an interview Monday. “That’s why we are pushing ahead with this project and the urban village approach.”

The development would demolish the existing buildings on the site, which now has four office buildings and one retail building, according to a San Jose planning staff memo about the plan.
