Updated illustrations for a mixed-use development in Willow Glen, San Jose show plans for housing, commercial space and open parks that will replace a commercial strip mall and surface parking.

The new plans, designed by Kenneth Rodrigues & Partners, include the preservation of the carousel sign at Cambrian Park Plaza and an arched corridor that leads to a fountain on the corner of Camden and Union avenues, San Francisco YIMBY reports.

The design for the project will take inspiration from multiple Italian cities while still incorporating the plaza’s history in the development. The historic carousel sign will be located next to the assisted living building, dog run and vehicle entrance.

Some of the specific goals of the project include making the outdoor space pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly, creating space for public art, increasing the prominence of the property with amenities and architecture and increasing the overall available open space for the neighborhood.

The completed Cambrian Park Plaza is expected to provide more than 400,000 square feet of residential and commercial space in one building; more than 165,000 square feet of space for the second building, including hotel and commercial space; and over 180,000 square feet of assisted living space in the third building. The design also shows almost 50,000 square feet of space for 25 townhomes and over 113,000 square feet for 48 single-family homes.

The full project is expected to yield 378 residential units total, in addition to 110 assisted living beds and 50 units for independent senior living.

Weingarten Realty Investors, the developer and property owner, plans to include affordable housing as a part of the project, but the exact number of units is unknown at this time.

San Jose has a wave of residential and commercial development planned, in part because of Google’s expansion there.
