The San Jose Stevens Creek Urban Village Plan responds to the San Jose 2040 General Plan and seeks to transition Stevens Creek from its current state as a commercial corridor of car dealerships and smaller buildings into a vibrant mixed-use and pedestrian-oriented neighborhood with convenient access to amenities, retail, a variety of housing options, transportation options, and public open spaces. 4360 Stevens Creek Promenade Buildings C and D provide a unit mix of primarily one and two-bedroom units, responding to the large influx of jobs created by nearby tech employers, affordable units are also included which help mitigate the rising costs of market-rate housing. The overall massing of Building C is characterized by the undulating metal panel wall planes which brings a sense of movement to the façade. White volumes inserted at the wall planes relate to the office building across the promenade. Along Stevens Creek Building C takes on a more modern architectural approach, increasing the angle of the wall planes and including large panels of glazing. Retail and cafe components line the base of the building along Stevens Creek, with outdoor seating spaces opening onto the adjacent promenade. Building D takes design cues from Building C but assumes a more conservative language, while also stepping down to relate to the existing residential development along Albany Drive. The Stevens Creek development has been designated as a San Jose signature project. Signature projects demonstrates a higher standard in architectural, landscape, and site design features.
