Second Street Studios is located at the intersection of South Second Street and Keyes, a gateway to Downtown San Jose’s southern entrance. This 135 unit affordable housing project occupies four floors above commercial space. The retail will be owned by a separate entity through condominium sub-division.

The current plan includes 9,000 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, with on-site parking for customers, employees, and residents. The building will have two elevators and is registered in the LEED for Homes Mid-rise pilot program in which it is expected to receive a LEED Platinum certification. The building will have an accessible, green vegetated-living roof with drainage gravity fed to a bio-swale at grade going out to Third Street. The commercial area will be divided into approximately 4-8 separate spaces for lease to businesses, such as supportive service nonprofits and shops/restaurants, which will serve the local community. Structured retail and residential parking will be provided on the ground floor and below grade. Bicycle parking will also be available.


Rob Wellington Quigley Architects is an award-winning architectural firm that designed the five-story building.
