Presidio El Camino

HMH worked with Core Affordable Housing on the Presidio El Camino in Santa Clara.  Presidio El Camino is comprised of studios and one-bedroom apartments, as well as approximately 3,000 square feet of retail / flex space. It is conveniently located close to shopping, grocery stores, and banks along the “Grand  Boulevard,” El Camino Real. This project features below-market rate studios and 1-bedrooms for households meeting income qualifications. The project was LEED Gold certified by the United States Green Building Council. The architecture and landscape architectural design is of California Mission and Spanish architectural styles contributing to the Grand Boulevard vision. The project includes a ground level arched arcade, decorative tile accents and mission towers.
