SAN JOSE, Calif. – December. 23, 2020 – Today the Santa Clara County Housing Authority (SCCHA) warmly welcomes 366 residents to its recently completed Park Avenue Senior Apartments and sister development, Laurel Grove Family Apartments, which was completed in March 2019. Located at 370 and 298 Laurel Grove Lane in San José, the new apartment community is adjacent to Diridon Station, the city’s major public transit hub and nexus for Google’s planned transit village. The virtual grand opening celebration with a resident interview and comments from Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren, San José Mayor Sam Liccardo, San José City Councilmember Dev Davis, Santa Clara County Supervisor Susan Ellenberg, and SCCHA Board Chair Jennifer Loving is available for viewing on SCCHA’s YouTube channel.
