San Jose, California: Excellence in Affordable Housing Design at Paseo Senter

HUD USER publishes a series of Case Study examples based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities, integrate sustainable features and practices, and increase access to public transportation. The projects featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

The most recent Case Study is Paseo Senter in San Jose, California. The 218-unit affordable housing project includes supportive services organized along a central “paseo” at the heart of the site. The bold, distinguished design earned the 2010 American Institute of Architects/HUD Secretary’s award for Excellence in Affordable Housing Design, while providing much-needed housing to low-income families. The project has helped unify disconnected neighborhoods and enhanced the city’s open space resources.

Visit HUD USER’s Case Studies Resource page to learn how Paseo Senter has expanded affordable housing opportunities in San Jose and to view other promising examples of how communities across the nation are raising the bar on affordable, sustainable development.
