SAN JOSE — Nearly 200 affordable homes could sprout on the site of a now-closed Chuck E. Cheese family restaurant in San Jose, according to preliminary plans being reviewed by city planners.

Affirmed Housing is planning a 100% affordable residential development on Kooser Road between Blossom Hill Road and Meridian Avenue, the plans show.

“There is not a lot of affordable housing in this area,” said Rob Wilkins, regional director of Northern California for Affirmed Housing. “It’s a great spot for affordable housing.”

The 1.6-acre site at 1371 Kooser Road is the location of a popular Chuck E. Cheese that closed its doors in 2020 amid the economic ravages unleashed by the deadly coronavirus.
