SAN JOSE — A first-of-its-kind hotel and housing development near downtown San Jose’s Diridon train station and a future Google transit village has landed two Marriott brands, a project consultant said Tuesday.
Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn by Marriott would be the two brands in the hotel, which would contain 311 rooms — and 19 for-sale residential condos — and would be build on a vacant lot at the corner of Julian and Stockton streets in San Jose.
“In the city of San Jose, there is no building that has a dual-brand hotel plus residential units,” said Erik Schoennauer, principal executive and partner with Schoennauer Company, a land-use and planning consultancy that is advising the project’s developer. “The project will support the goals of the city’s Diridon Station plan and the Alameda Urban Village plan.”
This development represents the first new downtown San Jose hotel development on the west side of State Route 87 in decades, according to Schoennauer. If approved, it would be the closest hotel to the Diridon transit station.
The hotel and residential project is being developed by Texas-based Kade Development and the designer is Oakland-based Architectural Dimensions.
Before construction could begin, the proposal would need a rezoning approved by the San Jose City Council as well as a planned development permit issued by city staffers.
“The idea is to have a dense, urban, mixed-use development in a walkable, transit-oriented neighborhood,” Schoennauer said.
In this case, the transit station, SAP Center, the future Google transit village, the Platform 16 office campus proposed development, as well as Whole Foods and an array of restaurants on The Alameda are all within a stroll of the new hotel tower.
Just down the street from the new hotel project, Google plans a transit-oriented community of office buildings, homes, shops, restaurants and open spaces where 15,000 to 20,000 of the search giant’s employees would eventually work.

Plus, Adobe Systems has launched a dramatic expansion of its downtown San Jose headquarters campus that now consists of three buildings by building an adjacent fourth office tower to accommodate a fast-expanding workforce.
“There is a lot nearby for the business traveler and for the leisure traveler,” Schoennauer said. “You have all the museums and cultural facilities of downtown San Jose very close by.”
