Consisting of 218 distinctively modern, affordable homes constructed between 1959 and 1961, the Fairglen Additions reflect the significant local efforts of master builder and developer Joseph Eichler in San Jose. The nomination narrative keeps the significance statement concise and focused on the specific resources, allowing the historic context to be broadly developed in the MPS cover document: Housing Tracts of Joseph Eichler in San Jose. California, 1952-1963. By 1959, Eichler Homes had constructed over 5,000 homes, including developments in Sunnyvale, Menlo Park, Redwood City, and Palo Alto. While others created repetitive tracts of common building types, Eichler’s careful, architect driven designs resulted in striking housing tracts, while still applying mass-production processes targeted to modest home buyers At the time the of the opening of the San Jose Fairglen Additions subdivision, Joseph Eichler explained that after months of effort by Jones and Emmons, AIA, and Anshen and Allen, AIA, “we believe this is the first time in the history of Northern California – or the entire nation, that a major homebuilder has been able to develop six completely different floor-plan concepts, each individually tailored in the pattern of living for a specific family.”
