Ohlone-Chynoweth Station Joint Development


The Ohlone-Chynoweth Station is a VTA real estate asset available for future development. The 3.89-acre property is located along Chynoweth Avenue and Pearl Avenue 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 land use designation is already slated for Transit Residential (TR) development.
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.
