West San Jose is the westernmost neighborhood in San Jose, California. The area of West San Jose is bounded on the north by the city of Santa Clara, on the east by San Tomas Expressway, on the south by Prospect Road, and on the west by De Anza Boulevard. The eastern boundary of San Jose City Council District 1 is at Winchester Blvd.
Most of the housing was built in the 1950s as moderately priced housing. A few decades later, however, the neighborhood has gone upscale as the median housing value rose to nearly one million dollars. Nearby commercial/retail includes the Westgate Mall and El Paseo de Saratoga.
