Document Description
Implementation of the proposed MPMP would allow for the demolition of the existing improvements (i.e., approximately 684,646 square feet of office uses, related surface parking areas, and landscaping) on-site and development of: • Five office buildings totaling 1,317,000 square feet of office uses and resulting in 632,355 square feet of net new office square footage; • Two affordable residential buildings and five residential mixed-use buildings with a total of up to 1,900 residential units (including up to 380 affordable units), up to 30,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, and 20,000 square feet of community/civic uses; • Two stand-alone parking structures and integrated parking at all office and residential buildings for shared district parking within MPMP; • Dedication of land to the City for three new future public parks totaling approximately 7.28-acres and construction of a 2.87-acre privately owned and publicly accessible park developed by the applicant, providing in total, up to 10.15 acres of park open space within the MPMP; • New vehicular circulation, including up to five private streets and a modification to Logue Avenue (a public street), new on-street and off-street bicycle and pedestrian improvements, and new landscaping and trees; and • As an option, the project could include a private district utilities system on-site with underground utility lines to serve some buildings within the MPMP with water, wastewater treatment, recycled water, geothermal energy (heating and cooling), and electric power. The private district utilities system, if provided, would a include an approximately 45,000-square-foot Central Utility Plant (CUP), temporary air sourced heat pump, district distribution system, and microgrid system that would include rooftop photovoltaic panels and on-site storage batteries. The proposed buildings and parking structures would range from 4 to 11 stories tall with maximum building heights ranging from 60 to 123 feet. The project would also include back-up diesel emergency generators on-site. Parking for all of the office and residential buildings would be provided in surface, above ground, and/or below ground parking facilities. Private open space and landscaping (including new trees) are also proposed. A pedestrian/bicycle bridge overcrossing the VTA light rail line is contemplated north of the existing Middlefield light rail station per the EWPP and would be designed at a future date. Utility improvements, such as connections to existing infrastructure, extension of underground electrical lines and circuits, placement of above ground utilities below ground, and relocation of existing gas lines, could be required. In addition to the improvements identified, the project includes a Vesting Tentative Map to create up to 18 lots, up to 1,900 condominium lots, and up to 98 vertical lots within the MPMP, as well as a Development Agreement to grant implementation of entitlements over a 20-year period. Other aspects of the MPMP include green building and emissions reduction features; construction activities; heritage tree removals and landscaping; site access, circulation, and parking; and a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) plan.
