Back to the Future: 350 N. Second Street

Posted by Danielle & David Contreras on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012 at 10:30am.

Recalling the history of San Jose with Victorian architectural flair on a 
contemporary downtown community of 62 loft townhomes, 350 N. Second Street 
is a landmark example of infill housing. 

Designed by renowned Wurster, Bernardi & Emmons architects, 350 helps frame 
the Historic Hensley District as a product of the San Jose Redevelopment era
that brought a host of unique housing developments to the downtown core. 

A nod to "green" transit oriented development (TOD), 350 is within easy 
walking distance of bus lines and the light-rail line, but includes a host 
of staycation-worthy features. There's a central sun-deck, pool and spa, as 
well as a fitness center. 

The TOD community, which includes some live-work units, is also within 
walking distance of downtown San Jose's ever-evolving work and play district
of corporate offices, shops, museums, entertainment venues and restaurants. 

Built in 2005, 350's loft homes with patios and balconies range in size from
956 to 1400 square feet on two or three levels, in seven floorplans, with 
expansive 17-foot high ceilings and architecturally significant windows to 
grace the height. 

The three-level lofts are zoned for commercial and residential use, have 
live-work space and include both street-level and corridor entrances. 

Three-level units range from about 1,320 to 1,400 square feet. In addition 
to open loft living spaces, the units contain a closet-less open or work 
area, the unit's laundry room and a shower bathroom in universal design. 

The tri-level units' upper two floor plans are similar to the two-level 
units, which have corridor-only entrances and range from about 956 to 1,200 
square feet. 

Homes at 350 also include some unique comforts: 

• One loft bedroom and loft area overlooking the living/dining area; 
flex space to be used as a den, office, guest room or second bedroom; two 
full baths, with universal design. 

• Quick-meal bar dividing the kitchen from the living/dining area; 
granite counters, stainless steel appliances. 

• Gas fireplace, sliding door accessed balconies and patios, 
underground parking.
