Welcome to the Reserve Redevelopment Construction Update web site. The apartment complex formerly known as “The Reserve” located at 897 S. Winchester Boulevard, has been approved for development of 636 new apartment homes, with 8,000 square feet of retail and a plaza along Winchester. We would like to make the construction process as easy on the surrounding neighbors as we can.  We expect to update this web site periodically, at critical milestones.

As of January 23, 2018:

Preparation for slab concrete pours for the underground parking garage began in early January. The concrete pours will take about 9 months. Starting in February, most days of the week will be devoted to setting rebar and other things to get ready for the actual pour. And then, typically one day a week, there will be an all day concrete pour. On those days there will be many more trucks entering and leaving the site and there will be more noise than usual. The project must follow City of San Jose policies and environmental mitigations, such as modern mufflers on equipment, to minimize noise impacts. 

In addition to work happening on-site, there are several off-site construction activities. This will be updated if schedules should shift. Check back frequently.

Water, sewer and storm drain improvements 

All of the following to occur between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday in the months noted. No street closures.
  1. Williams Road from Winchester to Opal in February 2018: Alternating lane closures.
  2. Winchester on north end of Reserve project site, starting mid February 2018 and lasting 4-6 weeks: Alternating lane closures southbound.
  3. Winchester on south end of Reserve project site near 7/11 store, beginning at the conclusion of #2 (estimated mid-late March 2018) lasting 2-4 weeks: Alternating lane closures southbound.

Winchester and Williams Intersection Improvement Project

What is it? Reconstructing the intersection to improve both vehicle and pedestrian travel and safety as well as general aesthetic improvements. The west side of the intersection will be re-aligned and a new median constructed, the unsafe “porkchop” islands will be removed and up-to-date pedestrian safety features will be added, and new traffic signals will be installed

Why? In addition to completing the necessary traffic mitigation requirements of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for The Reserve, further improvements are being made based on public input during the review process for the Reserve redevelopment.

When? Starting in May, 2018 for at least 6 months. Construction hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.<br>

Impacts:  Lane closures only. NO street closures.
