FCH provides all residents with a free, annual VTA Eco Pass providing free bus and light rail throughout Santa Clara County.


Iamesi Village is the affordable portion of the North San Pedro Residential Project, a large multi-phased housing master plan being developed by Intracorp Companies, Barry Swenson Builder, and First Community Housing, in partnership with the San Jose Redevelopment Agency.  The 5.72-acre site is immediately adjacent to San Jose’s Downtown Core Area.  FCH’s involvement with the project enabled the RDA to secure a $24 million Infill Infrastructure Grant from the State of California.


The North San Pedro Residential Project area connects a recently redeveloped area of downtown with Guadalupe Park and the commercial shopping area of San Pedro Square. Rebuilding the traditional neighborhood street grid and developing a new residential community with a variety of unit types will provide a fabric that connects currently separated sections of the city. Residential neighborhoods to the north are linked, via new community park and paseos, to the shopping and entertainment at North San Pedro Square as well as the central business district and downtown amenities. Residential neighborhoods to the east will be able to walk through a pleasant, safe and well landscaped community to access Guadalupe Park to the west. The development enhances San Jose’s urban lifestyle, connects with public transportation and compliments the surrounding community.


WAITLIST INFO:  This development is devoted entirely to veterans, permanent supportive housing and people with intellectual / developmental disabilities. Residents are selected by the Veterans’ Administration, the County of Santa Clara Office of Supportive Housing, and Housing Choices Coalition. If you are a veteran, are homeless or are looking for supportive housing, please work with your case manager to inquire about housing.
