New preliminary permits have been filed for the redevelopment of Moonlite Shopping Center in Santa ClaraSanta Clara County. The application states the project could replace the 14.3-acre strip mall at 2610 El Camino Real with nearly six hundred homes, amenities, and open space. Sherman Clay Group is the property owner, operating through Moonlite Associates LLC.

The preliminary application invokes Senate Bill 330 to secure existing zoning rules to streamline the approval process if a certain percentage of all housing is affordable. The application states that potential redevelopment could create a complex with “approximately 584 dwelling units, over 10,000 SF of workspace, gym, live-work units and over 40,000 square feet of publicly accessible open space.”

Full build-out could achieve a housing density of roughly 43 units per acre, excluding the 0.9 acres of open space. This suggests the project will primarily feature mid-rise apartments. The plans do not indicate that any retail will be included. The parking capacity is not specified.

The strip mall is located along a dense portion of the El Camino Real retail thoroughfare between the Lawrence Expressway and San Tomas Expressway. Future residents will be next to the city’s Koreatown.

SC Group has owned the property through Moonlite Associates LLC since 1977. SC Group also owns the Winchester Shopping Center at 50-52 North Winchester Boulevard, across from the Valley Fair Mall and near Santana Row. The firm has yet to reply to a request for comment from YIMBY.
