On east side of this Urban Village, the building height may reach 150 feet, while on west side, even the lowest height limited is 85 feet. A lot of residents, including Better Cupertino supporters, attended the SCAG meeting on May 11th. Thank you for your appearance! It did make a difference with the transition regulations. The plan of a 7-story hotel (the Stern Hotel) at the intersection of Stern Ave and Stevens Creek (to replace current Shell Gas Station) may be on hold, but a new plan will appear soon.
You can see how a 85-ft building looks like in the following image.
More residents engagement may give pressure to developers and San Jose officials on shaping the Stevens Creek Urban Village Plan. So, please inform your neighbors, no matter if you are living in San Jose, Cupertino, Santa Clara. And you can subscribe to Better Cupertino newsletter for updates in future.
