Downtown development news is on fire lately. The Piece is a major apartment project that tops out at seven stories but has great stylistic character that changes based on what side of the building you are looking at. This is nothing like the generic apartment behemoths that are popping up everywhere in North San Jose.
The project consists of 230 units, which are split between studios, one bedroom, and two bedroom units (no three bedroom units). Amenities include a pool, spa, fitness center, and a roof deck. There is also 3,500 SQFT available for commercial space on the ground floor of the South Market Street side.
It may not be a high-rise project, but I love the design and think it will add a lot to the SoFA district. Thanks to The Pierce along with the mini-San Pedro Square Market project, you can expect to see a lot more foot-traffic in SoFA over the next couple of years.
