Downtown San Jose

The SJRA's Downtown program is modeled after the San Jose of 1900-1950 - a 24-hour city where people lived, worked, and shopped. Today's Downtown is a thriving urban center, offering an amalgamation of cultural, professional, and residential amenities.

Through a potent combination of public/private partnerships, the SJRA stimulated more than nearly $2 billion of private investment in Downtown, creating an enviable quality of life in San Jose.
