Bascom Apartments

The Bascom project will deliver 88 units of permanent supportive and family affordable apartments in tandem with community-centric resources. Located west of Downtown San Jose, the TOD development features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units above ground floor support services, a community room with gathering space, conference rooms, a gym, parking and bike storage. Designed to encourage pedestrian and bike activity, the new development features a lush paseo that leads to the main entrance and several paths through and around the building to connect to public transit options.

Access to a large courtyard, upper-level gathering spaces with built-in seating, and an enclosed tot lot play area is complemented by lush planting and a compositional aesthetic on the exterior of modern and traditional materials.
