Westmount update

The preview models of the homes at Westmount have been available for potential homebuyers since April 12.

According to Standard Pacific sales counselor Stephanie Pierce, there has been no movement toward installing a stop light at the difficult intersection of Mission and 10th Street. She did mention that converting 10th and 11th into two-way roads has been discussed, but admitted that it would have to wait until funds are available.

Sam Liccardo, San José city council member for District 3, said some time ago that “high-speed one-way couplets—the three lane, one-way roads that slice up our Downtown–have long been the bane of any pedestrian who wants to cross a street like 10th, 11th, 3rd, or 4th, without engaging in a game of high-speed, full-contact Frogger,” but that “converting those speedways to slower two-way streets requires many millions of dollars—converting and installing new traffic signals, altering required sidewalk ramps, and the like–that we won’t have for many years.”

Westmount Square



Westmount is a 60-unit complex, going in south of E. Mission Street between 10th and 11th Streets.

Developer: Standard Pacific Homes

We discovered these are NOT condominiums, but townhomes. There are also some single-family homes included in the project.

Based on the visualizations and the building progress, it looks like the architect is trying to echo the design of some of the Craftsman-Style homes on the other side of the street.


Reality (so far)
