BRIDGE worked with the City of San Jose to build this innovative mixed-use development on what had been a city corporation yard and the site of an outdated community center. The resulting development combines senior housing with a new community center in the city’s downtown. In addition to creating the senior housing, BRIDGE served as master developer for the 16,000-square-foot senior community center. The center, which was funded by the city, is connected to the housing, providing residents easy access to the center’s many programs and services. Shopping is close by, and public bus lines stop at the door for longer trips, making this property ideally located for Seniors. Mabuhay was given a Builder’s Choice Award by Builder magazine.
