South San Jose

Expansive. Thriving. Green.

South San Jose is an expansive region with thriving business, green space and parkland. It’s an attractive destination with light rail and easy access to freeways - offering Silicon Valley’s only reverse commute. The business districts - Evergreen and Edenvale - have many amenities, including urban villages, ample housing and access to a highly educated workforce.

  • Edenvale is primarily an industrial area - home to Edenvale Technology Park, which is one of the leading centers for job creation in San Jose. Worldwide leaders in ICT, medical and nano technology - the San Jose BioCube - a world-renowned nanotechnology and biotechnology incubator - is located here. 
  • Evergreen is primarily a retail commercial and residential area- housing Evergreen Community College with some of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in San Jose. Evergreen is located on in the southeast corner of the Santa Clara County. 


Many of the region’s top talent enjoy working in South San Jose. Its green space, ample housing and easy commute make it a sought after destination by area professionals and growing businesses.
