Winchester Apartments, a new contemporary multifamily community in San Jose, has broken ground. The project is located between the historic Winchester Mystery House and I-280

The 366-unit, seven-story building includes an amenity-rich community aimed at serving active professionals and multi-generational residents. Designed to meet the evolving preferences of Bay Area residents, Winchester Apartments will offer a variety of unit layouts, including studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom floorpans spanning 560 to 1,582-sf.

Amenities will include courtyards, private and interactive amenity spaces, a fitness center, a pool, a dog run, a pet wash, a screening room, a cafe, and designated co-working areas. A two-level parking garage will feature 515 spaces for residents.

KTGY designed the exterior massing and oversaw all preliminary layouts through entitlements, design development, conceptual design and construction administration. The community’s contemporary architectural design was inspired by the movement and speed found off the I-280 and depicts shadowing and horizontality on the building’s façade to mimic passing cars on the highway. 

Once complete, Winchester Apartments will enhance the nearby Santana Row and help support the city’s master plan and vision for a vibrant, mixed-use and pedestrian-oriented development. The master plan sits on 15.7 acres and includes a neighborhood of stacked flats and townhomes, also designed by KTGY.

Winchester Apartments is slated for completion in 2023.
