Notice of CEQA Posting:

Eterna Tower Mixed-Use Development Project Addendum

The City of San José has prepared an Addendum to the San José Downtown Strategy 2040 Final Environmental Impact Report (SCH # 2003042127); and addenda thereto.

Project File No.: H20-026

Location: The project is located on approximately 0.18 gross acres over two parcels located at 17 and 29 East Santa Clara Street

The Addendum is posted on the City's website at:

Project Description:  Site Development Permit to allow demolition of the existing two-story buildings on the site to allow construction of a 26-story, approximately 184,667-gross square foot mixed-use building on an approximately 0.18-acre site at 17 and 29 East Santa Clara Street in downtown San José. The building would accommodate 192 residential units and approximately 5,217 square feet of office space on the second floor. The project would provide 22 percent of the units at Below Market Rate (BMR). The project site is currently occupied by a pair of two-story buildings, one of which (17 East Santa Clara Street) is an identified Structure of Merit on the City's Historic Resources Inventory; both are proposed for demolition. The project would retain the street facing façade and parapet of the existing building at 17 East Santa Clara Street, which would be integrated into the new project.

The proposed building would have a height of just over 273 feet and would consist of a main lobby, 50 first floor long-term parking spaces for bicycles, 192 residential units, and a basement-level to house utilities for the building. Proposed common outdoor area for the building consists of a rooftop terrace. Private open space would be provided by balconies for most units. In addition, the project proposes to reserve approximately 5,438 square feet of the basement and floor level areas for an access point to the future BART/VTA station. The project would also install a backup generator that would be located on the basement level.
