Community leaders and partners celebrate the groundbreaking of Mainline North in Santa Clara

Community leaders and development officials detailed the incredible demand and need for more affordable housing during a groundbreaking celebration  April 18 for Mainline North, an affordable apartment community near Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Several dozen people attended the event for the 151-apartment community, located in the 2300 block of Calle del Mundo, near Tasman Drive and Lafayette Street. The $81 million development is part of the city’s award-winning Tasman East Specific Plan, an effort to establish a transit-oriented and walkable neighborhood. 

Mainline North is a few blocks from a large grocery store, an elementary school, a park, and public transportation – including a couple of bus stops and the Lick Mill light-rail station.

Construction on the eight-story building has started and should be completed in early 2025.

The apartment community will be available to households that earn 30% to 70% of the area’s median income.

Mainline North will offer studios to three-bedroom, two-bath apartments that fit the budget and space needs of a wide range of residents, from single-person households to families.
