SummerHill Homes has moved forward on plans to build 292 apartments and 42 townhomes in North San Jose.

The San Ramon-based developer has had a draft environmental study published for 334 homes proposed at 210 Baypointe Parkway, SFYimby reported. They would replace a 68,000-square-foot office building.

The development between East Tasman Drive and Zanker Road is surrounded by tech parks, where San Jose officials hope to lure developers to build more homes, near the Cisco corporate campus and Baypointe light rail station.

Plans call for a seven-story apartment complex with 292 units next to a community of 42 three- and four-story condominiums, linked by a paseo.

The 78-foot-tall main building would include studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, wrapped around a courtyard and pool, including 17 affordable units for very low-income households. It would include a club room and fitness center.

The condos on the other side of the paseo would feature three- and four-bedroom units. The condos would average more than 1,900 square feet, while apartments would average more than 800 square feet.

The project, designed by KTGY of Los Angeles, includes brown, gray and white apartments sheathed in stucco, vertical board siding and stone veneer. The condos would come in beige and ochre, with inset balconies and charcoal accents. 

Pending approvals, Summerhill could break ground as early as 2025 and complete the project in 2028, according to the environmental study.

SummerHill Homes, a unit of SummerHill Housing Group, is among eight companies founded by brokerage Marcus & Millichap.

Since 1976, it has completed more than 80 developments containing more than 6,000 single-family homes, condominiums, townhomes and apartments across the Bay Area, according to its website.
