Gateway is walking distance to thousands of technology jobs,
shopping, dining and attractions.
The project will include luxury one- to four-bedroom residences that range from 734 square feet to 1,340 square feet along
with amenities that include a clubhouse, fitness and meditation
room. Downtown Gateway is expected to be LEED Gold certified.
"The Downtown Gateway will be a new lifestyle community
pre-selling in the spring," Acharya says.
In Fremont, Calif., SiliconSage Builders is building Osgood
Residences, a 93-unit condominium development. The company
also has another development in Fremont in the design phase
that will feature 72 townhomes, 64 apartments and retail space.
SiliconSage Builders is also designing a 38-unit apartment building in Sunnyvale that will be completed in 2021.

Expanding in San Jose
SiliconSage Builders last spring broke ground on Almaden
Terrace, a 96-unit condominium building in San Jose, Calif. The
building will be five stories tall at the front side and four stories
in the back to be less intrusive to neighbors. Almaden Terrace
will consist of 45,000 square feet and include nearly 200 parking
spots in an underground and at-level parking garage.
Almaden Terrace is expected to be ideal for first-time homebuyers and other residents who may not be able to afford a more
expensive home in the area. "We focus on the urban lifestyle and
are geared toward mixed-use products with proper amenities,"
Acharya notes. "We offer residences with the lifestyle aspect that
includes retail, dining and shopping all in one."
SiliconSage Builders is also constructing a 101-unit rental
building in San Jose. "There is a serious housing shortage in
Silicon Valley," Acharya says. "We want to be innovative and
different in good times and bad, and we believe we should give
products people will desire."
As SiliconSage Builders continues to develop the Silicon Valley
housing space, it plans to offer homeowners a fully integrated
experience complete with artificial intelligence, the latest smart
technology and Amazon lockers.
"We understand that the millennials and the new generations
have a different taste in products than the prior generations, and
we are staying cognizant of that," Acharya says. "They want to be
in walking distance to amenities and to be able to catch a bus,
shuttle or cab to go wherever they want. Being aware and gearing towards this market will be key for the evolution of the next
generation. We are focused on being on the forefront of that."
