San Jose-based Urban Catalyst submitted a Preliminary Review Package to the City of San Jose for the company’s property in downtown San Jose. In July, Urban Catalyst purchased the property, located 200 yards from the proposed Google campus, which bookends Adobe’s global headquarters in the Diridon Station Area, and is steps away from the SAP Arena and Diridon Station.
Urban Catalyst plans to activate “The Keystone” property at 491 W. San Carlos St. with a new, select service, 170-room extended-stay business hotel. Future plans include such amenities as an outdoor courtyard and BBQ/recreation area at podium level, a rooftop deck, and an onsite gym. Construction on the property is expected to start in Q3 2020.
Architect Jeff Current of Studio Current, which is designing the hotel, says, “By building a transit-oriented development, we can provide our growing community with easy access to alternative transportation options that allow greater work and life flexibility.”
