The West San Jose area of San Jose was an industrial area dominated by dried fruit packing and cannery businesses, just outside of the San Jose city limits.

The area was primarily canneries through the 1950's, but faded soon after as costs soared and fruit had to be trucked in from further away. Many of the cannery properties were turned into office buildings in the 1970's, only to be replaced by apartment buildings and condos in the 21st century.
