I already cited officials in San Jose saying that they have concerns that their rent control laws as they pertain to new construction are making the housing shortage worse. That directly contradicts your “Everyone thinks rent control is awesome in San Jose!” opinion.
So explain? I think it is very controversial. Explain why it does.

Where? You dont mean this cite:

where it says "A significant portion of the apartments currently under way is in the
city of San Jose, particularly in the
downtown area, where demand is
bolstered by revitalization efforts currently in progress.."

Because you see- Rent Control in San Jose does not pertain in the slightest to new construction. Nothing built after 1979 is under rent control.
