Proposed project on Alberto Way is first in Los Gatos to use state streamlining law

Los Gatos received its first official residential development project that invokes a state housing law designed to streamline the process.

The proposed 52-unit, mixed-use, multi-family development at 405 Alberto Way made its way through the planning commission earlier this month and is has moved past the pre-application phase.  The development would include retail and fitness spaces, palm trees, a bocce court and central pool.

Newport Beach-based developers Bucilla Group Architecture invoked Senate Bill 330, a state housing law that prohibits cities from passing laws to prevent specific housing developments from being built, to expedite the permitting process.

The project, which was submitted to the city Aug. 28 and sits next to Highway 17 and Saratoga-Los Gatos Boulevard, would have a modern look similar to the controversial North 40 Phase 1 development on Lark Avenue. It includes 600 square feet of retail space, 625 square feet of fitness space and 52 housing units ranging from one to three bedrooms.

Five electric vehicle charging stations per building are proposed, as well as bike and car parking, and 57,443 square feet of open space that would house a dog park, bocce court and hot tub.
