Big Delay for Japantown Square??

I’m looking now at the following notice on the City of San Jose Online Permits page:

https://www.sjpermits.org/permits/general/emailpermitquery.asp?permitnum=DA16-001

Amendment to the Development Agreement previously approved. Associated with rezoning files no. PDC15-18 and PD15-055 Consideration of an ordinance to approve an amended Development Agreement between Jackson Taylor Partners, LLC, and the City of San Jose to amend and vest a previously approved Planned Development Zoning (File No. PDC15-018) and Planned Development Permit (File No. PD15-055) within the scope of the Development Agreement. The Development Agreement Amendment will vest entitlements for SEVEN YEARS to develop 520 residential units and 19,191 square feet of commercial space consistent with the provisions of the Japantown Corporation Yard Redevelopment Project Final Environmental Impact Report and subsequent Addenda, the Jackson-Taylor Residential Strategy, and the Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan on a 5.25 gross acre site bounded by N. Sixth Street, E. Taylor Street, N. Seventh Street, and Jackson Street.

There doesn’t seem to be any need for such an amendment, unless it involves adding a delay – in this, as much as SEVEN YEARS!

Construction was scheduled to begin late this year, or early next ear. Locals and residents should have received some sort of final notice by now.

Now, it appears that this project is delayed, once again. Unless someone can come up with other information…
