We are thrilled to announce that after several years of collaboration and feedback with the City of Santa Clara and the community, construction on the Agrihood project began in June 2021. Our first task is to clear and grade the project site, shortly followed by the installation of utilities such as water, sewer and storm drains, telephone and electricity through October 2021. Vertical construction will continue for the next two years with phase 1 construction expected to be completed in 2023. The tenant selection process will likely start 6 months prior to the completion of construction.
We are grateful for all the community members who have shaped the Agrihood with their thoughtful input throughout this process. THANK YOU for taking the time to share your stories about why this critical housing and farm space is so important for Santa Clara. We also want to express our heartfelt gratitude for Mayor Gillmor, the City Council and the talented City staff for working with us to make Agrihood a reality. Their insightful guidance has helped the Agrihood become a special place – one that will promote health, wellness, comfort and joy for all Santa Clarans.
Because of everyone’s hard work, we’re closer than we’ve ever been to achieving our mission to bring an affordable, vibrant housing community to Santa Clara. The Agrihood’s 361 homes (181 of which are below-market), urban farm, retail and open space will provide a uniquely enjoyable place to live and gather for seniors, veterans, middle-income workers, and other community members. And it will connect Santa Clara’s contemporary urban living with our agricultural past.
Our goal throughout this endeavor has been to provide the affordable housing that we urgently need in Santa Clara through a truly creative, community-driven process. Thank you for working with us to make that happen.
