A Bay Area developer on Monday proposed to build an affordable housing project in South San Jose.

Affordable Housing

Jemcor Development Partners, a San Mateo-based developer, proposed to build a 1.9-acre parcel at 1007 Blossom Hill Road. The site was formerly occupied by the Fish Market, a 23-year-old chain restaurant that was forced to close permanently due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The developers have submitted the proposed project to San Jose’s planning commission for early-stage assessment. Jemcor is expected to use the state’s SB 330 law to fast-track the approval of the project.

Jemcor Development Partners was previously behind several affordable housing complexes in San Jose, Santa Clara, and Mountain View.
