Santana Row offers a mix of high-end and mid-tier retail tenants, ranging from luxury brands like Gucci, Kate Spade, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Tourneau, to casual brands like Diesel, H&M, Ann Taylor LOFT, Anthropologie, Free People, and Urban Outfitters. Also on the row are restaurants ranging from local concepts like Left Bank Brasserie and sister restaurant LB Steak, Pizza Antica, and Blowfish, to chains like The Counter, Chili's, Maggiano's Little Italy, Wahoo's Fish Taco, and Pinkberry. The district is anchored by Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, and The Container Store, and was the home of a flagship Borders bookstore until the company's liquidation in 2011.
The Residences at Santana Row feature 514 homes (219 privately owned condos and 295 rental townhomes and flats), with population over 1,000. Bars and restaurants at Santana Row close several hours earlier due to proximity to residences.
The site was previously a Town and Country Village. On August 19, 2002, during construction, the largest building at Santana Row (Building 7, "Santana Heights") caught fire. The fire eventually caused $130,000,000 in damage, and embers spread to at least 13 apartment buildings, some with wooden roofs, nearly a mile downwind of the shopping center on Moorpark Avenue, across Interstate 280. The main fire spread to five alarms, while the secondary fires required six alarms. It was the largest structure fire in San Jose's history.
