Urban Catalyst Floats Housing Instead Of Offices At Icon/Echo
If altered, Icon/Echo could create over a thousand units from the two-acre parcel.

Urban Catalyst is now considering adjusting plans for Icon/Echo by replacing the office component with more housing in Downtown San Jose, Santa Clara County. The plan was floated by the developer founder, Erik Hayden, and reported by George Avalos for the Bay Area News Group. If altered, Icon/Echo could create over a thousand units from the two-acre parcel.

The latest public permit for the Icon/Echo complex, filed earlier this year, was for a minor adjustment in amenity open space and to remove the private open space of the Echo residential tower, with no adjustment to the Icon office towers.

The recent reporting by Avalos quoted Hayden as saying, “We are thinking about developing 650 multifamily units at Icon.” Alongside the 389 units in Echo, this would result in 1,039 apartments across the roughly two acres directly across from the San Jose City Hall.

WRNS Studio is the project architect. Initial plans paired the curtain-wall clad office block with stacked volumes divided by balconies, set next to a monotone residential tower with vertical pixelated features facing North 4th Street. Renderings show balconies facing toward Saint James Park.
