El Paseo Studios provides 98 suites tailored to single occupancy where Hamilton and Campbell Avenues converge in San Jose.  Flanked by Westgate Shopping Center to the North and El Paseo de Saratoga Shopping and Theater Complex to the South, the site is in close proximity to major transportation thoroughfares and regional shopping centers. This prime location means that residents can easily enjoy neighborhood amenities.

Green Features

Healthy living for our tenants starts by giving consideration to indoor air quality. Finishes such as paints, finishes, adhesives, carpets, resilient linoleum flooring that have low volatile compound makeup and low off-gassing properties keep tenants and staff from breathing and absorbing toxic fumes that can otherwise cause harm to their health.


Saving energy lowers operating expenses. This is achieved through insulation, water use, efficient plumbing and electrical fixtures. By having well-insulated and ventilated shell it reduces the amount of energy required to heat and cool the units and helps to improve indoor air quality. Lower energy use equals lower energy costs for the both common areas and for tenants.


The project is a transit oriented development located close to bus stops. In addition, First Community Housing will purchase local transit passes for each resident, providing use throughout Santa Clara County.
