Welcome to the Reserve Redevelopment Construction Update web site. The apartment complex formerly known as “The Reserve” located at 897 S. Winchester Boulevard, has been approved for development of 636 new apartment homes, with 8,000 square feet of retail and a plaza along Winchester. We would like to make the construction process as easy on the surrounding neighbors as we can. We expect to update this web site periodically, at critical milestones.

As of September 21, 2018:
Slab concrete pours have been happening since the first quarter of 2018 and as of late September, 2018 the construction team was more than 3/4 of the way through the nine month process. On days with especially large pours there are many more trucks entering and leaving the site along with a bit more noise than typical. The project must follow City of San Jose policies and environmental mitigations, such as modern mufflers on equipment, to minimize noise impacts.
Wood framing started in July 2018 and will last up to one year. After a section is framed, sheek rock and stucco will be added.
In addition to work happening on-site, there are several off-site construction activities. This will be updated if schedules should shift.
Water, sewer and storm drain improvements off site are done. There is digging and installation of underground utilities on Williams Road occurring between 9:00 and 3:00 Monday through Friday with lane closures, but no street closures. This is planned to be completed by early October.
Winchester and Williams Intersection Improvement Project
What is it? Reconstructing the intersection to improve both vehicle and pedestrian travel and safety as well as general aesthetic improvements. The west side of the intersection will be re-aligned and a new median constructed, the unsafe “porkchop” islands will be removed and up-to-date pedestrian safety features will be added, and new traffic signals will be installed
Why? In addition to completing the necessary traffic mitigation requirements of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for The Reserve, further improvements are being made based on public input during the review process for the Reserve redevelopment.
When? Starting September 2018 for at least 6 months. Construction hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Impacts: Lane closures only. NO street closures.
