Curtner Station Joint Development
The Curtner Station is a VTA real estate asset available for future development. The 5.5-acre property is located along SR-87 and Curtner Avenue in San Jose’s Willow Glen/Cambrian neighborhoods. This property currently serves as a Park & Ride lot for Light Rail and Bus passengers.
The parking lot is underutilized and 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 Meetings/Input OpportunityA community meeting was held on October 10, 2018. Staff provided an update on the Curtner Station Joint and Transit-Oriented Development plans that are moving forward. As noted below, VTA has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) seeking proposals from qualified developers to build a mixed-use transit oriented development (TOD) on VTA's Curtner Transit Center.
The presentation is available here to view and/or download. If you would like a presentation to your organization or neighborhood association about this project, or other VTA activities, please contact us.
In January of this year, VTA staff facilitated a discussion and provided attendees with an opportunity to learn about the potential for a transit-oriented development (TOD) opportunity and VTA's Joint Development program. Thank you for your participation and input! The material presented in January is available: Curtner Presentation.
