Diridon Station Area Plan 

Approved by the City Council on June 17, 2014, the Diridon Station Area Plan (DSAP) established long-term goals for the area, including a land use plan, urban design guidelines, a framework for station expansion, transportation and parking strategies, housing strategies, and an art master plan. The plan integrates open space, transportation and land uses to create an expansion of Downtown San José, while respecting existing environments. The plan weaves new ideas and new development possibilities within existing city fabric and strong neighborhoods. 

The City Council's certification of the associated Environmental Impact Report provided clearance for maximum development capacities in the 240-acre area across three distinct zones: Northern, Central, and Southern. The total development capacity includes: 4,950,000 s.f. of commercial industrial, 420,000 s.f. of retail and/or restaurant, 2,588 residential units, and 900 hotel rooms.
