SAN JOSE PLANS TO COMBINE MARKET-HOUSE CONDOS WITH UNITS FOR THE UNHOUSED




A site in San Jose’s theater district will be transformed into a development full of regular condos, but also units for the homeless -- and the city is calling the innovative and unique idea the first of its kind in California.“Historically, when government tried to address poverty, they built large projects that were all folks clustered together of the same income level, the same low-income level and outcomes did not necessarily improve,” Mayor Matt Mahan said. “It was great the people were housed, but there were a lot of other challenges.”This is different, however. When finished, the project will boast 500 units -- 360 will be market-rate condos and 68 will be affordable homes. Also, 72 will be designated as permanent supportive housing – for people once living on the street – owned and operated by Path Ventures.
