Welcome to Santana Row

One-stop destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment in the heart of San Jose
Referred to as a “village within a city,” Santana Row is 42 acres of a high-end residential and shopping district near downtown San Jose. Residents enjoy a wealth of trendy dining and shopping experiences within their walkable community, as well as the cultural treasures and natural delights of the greater Bay Area.
Santana Row was constructed in the early 2000s and was considered to be the most ambitious development of its kind at the time. As it grew into the impressive district it is today, Santana Row set the international standard for luxury and accessibility of a planned community.
Real estate in Santana Row is high-end and luxuriously appointed with all the amenities of a private community. From cozy studios to spacious townhomes, units range in size and style to offer a variety of lifestyle options. As housing in the Santana Row and San Jose area is coveted, pricing is on the high end.

What to Love

  • Ease and comfort of living in a planned community
  • Spacious, beautifully landscaped pedestrian-only boulevards
  • Incredible variety of shopping and dining within walking distance

People & Lifestyle

Enjoy the hip atmosphere of an urban environment with the conveniences of a community designed with contemporary needs in mind. Although Santana Row is considered the most stylish district of San Jose, it also offers its residents a strong sense of home with monthly social events, community kitchens, picnic areas, and more.
The majority of residents are successful professionals with careers in Silicon Valley’s tech industry. Young families, couples, and single professionals all reside in the community and value a privileged lifestyle centered around convenience and high-quality amenities.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

With over 50 shops, 30 restaurants, multiple movie theaters, and more, it’s not hard to see why Santana Row is considered a leisure destination of South Bay.
Residents can appoint their homes with the curated collection of hand-crafted décor, furnishings, and more at Makers Market. For apparel, high-end staples like Kate Spade, Tumi, and LuluLemon can all be found lining Santana Row’s colorful avenues. When residents seek an indulgent experience, Atelier Salon and Burke Williams offer luxurious and rejuvenating treatments.
Santana Row’s dining options include both gourmet and casual restaurants, plus everything in between. The exhilarating flavors of Fogo de Chão are a local favorite, thanks to their menu of authentic Brazilian steakhouse cuisine. Evenings are always lively at the popular Vintage Wine Bar with its cozy outdoor seating and menu of 25 wines by the glass and selection of champagne and spirits. For no-fuss classic American cuisine, The Counter’s chic industrial interior is the perfect place to enjoy one of their custom hand-made burgers.

Things to Do

With Santana Row’s focus on cultivating a dynamic residential community and San Jose’s incredible collection of sites and attractions, locals never run out of experiences to enjoy and explore.  
During the summer, the weekly Santana Row Farmers’ Market sells exceptional organic produce perfect for homemade meals. During the winter months, residents enjoy artificial snow and holiday tunes at the bi-weekly Santana Row Snow Showers, plus the colorful and energetic performances of the Lunar New Year Celebration.
Venturing outside the contained community, one cannot ignore tantalizing allure of the Winchester Mystery House. Constructed in 1922, this enormous mansion is complete with a puzzling labyrinth of stairs, corridors, and empty rooms seemingly designed to appease resident spirits. For something more grounded that takes advantage of the area’s beautiful weather, the Happy Hollow Park and Zoo is an amusement park with a full day’s worth of family-friendly activities.
