McEvoy Apartments, a new 100% affordable housing development in San Jose, will comprise two 12-story towers over a podium, rooftop gardens, a courtyard, and generous gathering areas. The project will be built using a mass timber frame with a traditional lateral system.

One of the towers will include 141 apartments geared toward families in one-, two-, and three-bedroom units while the second tower will provide 224 studios for working individuals and couples.

McEvoy Apartments has been designed to meet LEED Platinum certification and with the goal of being viewed by everyone who lives in the community as an iconic development that bridges and connects communities. The transit-oriented development is located near the San Jose Diridon Station.

First Community Housing, a nonprofit housing group, is developing the project, which is slated to begin construction in early 2022.
