South Main Street in Milpitas will be home to a new mixed use development, with housing and retail shops revitalizing the midtown area. According to an article recently published by the San Jose Mercury, 25 townhouse style condos will be built, in addition to 2,000 square feet of retail space. City planners have recommended approval the proposal submitted by City Venture’s Inc.
Should the proposal go through, four parcels along South Main Street will bring new life to this part of Milpitas. Currently there is a vacant lot as well as a couple of lots with empty commercial buildings and one with a residential property on it. The site has been zoned as a mixed-use area.
The new townhome condos will be contained within four three-story buildings with a two-car garage for each unit. Three condos will have two bedrooms, the other 22 units will have three bedrooms. One building will include retail space which could be used by one or more companies. Within this building 66 parking stalls will be included, with 8 each dedicated to retail shoppers and resident guests. The remaining stalls will be reserved for residents living above the retail space.
There will also be private open spaces created within the development, in addition to landscaping around the public open areas. An extra wide sidewalk and courtyards will make this a very pedestrian friendly space as well. This type of mixed-use development will bring some new vitality to Milpitas, and help towards creating a great urban village in the heart of midtown. The final approval is expected to be voted on by the Milpitas City Council soon. We will be watching to see how this exciting proposal in Milpitas comes together.
