Crescent Village is one of the largest Silicon Valley apartment communities to open in years and comes amid a tight market for renters. Crescent Village is part of Vision North San Jose, a city effort to advance jobs, homes and stores in North San Jose’s Innovation Triangle. It is a modern, amenity-rich community for tech professionals in walking distance to employers and light rail.

San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed and Councilmember Kansen Chu joined Irvine Company executives Kevin Baldridge and Andrew Goodman, Sept. 24, for grand opening and tours of visually stunning apartment community.
