This new development brings more than 200 units of market-rate rentals apartments to the growing arts districts of San Jose. The project provides a wide range of amenities for residents, including a pool and cabana, fitness room and yoga studio, and community lounge—as well as hands-on activity spaces, such as a community kitchen, micro-gallery, DIY workshop space, and a bicycle repair room.
