Plant 51

From Decommissioned Cannery to Condos

This former fruit drying and canning facility for Del Monte Corporation—their "Plant 51"—is now home to 265 fully renovated condominiums that take advantage of the building's historic brick-and-timber construction. The project includes 23,000 square feet of landscaped outdoor space, a Bike Kitchen for cycle storage and repair, an indoor Mezzanine Lounge for gathering, and parking for 465 cars. Even the plant's original boiler room has been transformed into an eponymous fitness center.

The largest residential adaptive reuse project in San Jose, Plant 51 is located just west of downtown in the city’s fast-growing Midtown neighborhood. Diridon Station is next door, providing access to rail, bus, and shuttles systems that service the entire Bay Area, and HP Pavilion is across the street.
