Apartments for Rent

Although its roots are in agriculture, San Jose, California, is known for so much more, thanks to its place in Silicon Valley, its significant sports presence, and its bounty of culinary, cultural, outdoor, and entertainment offerings. These highlights draw many companies and apartment renters to the area, particularly to Downtown San Jose’s trendy hip neighborhoods. Many Essex apartment homes are within walking distance of restaurants and cultural activities, including authentic Italian food, Little Saigon, wine country, “museum row,” home to the San Jose Museum of Art and the Tech Museum of Innovation, and more. San Jose is also surrounded by rolling hills with exceptional hiking and mountain biking for the outdoorsy folks. Meanwhile, Santana Row, Westfield Valley Fair Mall, the San Jose Flea Market, and the Great Mall are perfect for renters who prefer retail entertainment.


Within our pet-friendly communities, you can enjoy many great amenities, such as fire pits, BBQ grills, swimming pools, fitness centers, and dog parks. Some Essex communities have bike storage and electric vehicle charging stations. Most are conveniently located near Caltrain, making visiting popular Bay Area cities like San Francisco a breeze.
