Blossom Hill Station Joint Development
This photo is an example of what a transit-oriented development can look like. This is not the Blossom Hill Station.
The Blossom Hill Station is a VTA real estate asset available for future development. The 7.59-acre property is located along Blossom Hill Road at Canoas Creek and serves as a Park & Ride lot for Light Rail and Bus passengers.
The parking lot has the potential for mixed use/mixed income transit residential and commercial development. Developments that are transit-oriented in nature enhance VTA’s transit operations through increases in ridership and infrastructure improvements. VTA is analyzing the site for opportunities to work with the private development sector along with the City of San Jose to plan a space that allows people to live and work near public transportation which helps clear the air, ease traffic and get you moving more efficiently and reliably.
VTA is embarking on preparing this site for future development, beginning with talking to the community about its plans.The current land use designation allows for a mix of commercial and residential units.
VTA’s Joint Development Program works with municipal and private partners to encourage the development of housing, retail, and employment centers in places that will help increase transit ridership and contribute to a vibrant community. Among VTA’s Joint Development requirements is that 20% of housing on a particular site must be affordable.
Upcoming Meeting/Input OpportunityVTA hosted a community meeting on Wednesday, January 24, 2018. VTA staff presented an overview of VTA's Joint Development program, and potential opportunity for a transit-oriented development (TOD), at VTA’s Blossom Hill Transit Center Parking located on Blossom Hill Road at Canoas Creek, San Jose. VTA is very interested in the community's input on this program and welcomes the vision of the community. This was the first meeting with the community to explore development opportunities at this location.
