The project is the approval of a Development Agreement (DA) over a 20-year period with potential for a two-year extension to allow development implementation of the Middlefield Park Master Plan, which includes 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 building locations 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 building locations and five residential mixed-use building locations with a total of up to 1,900 residential units (including up to 380 affordable units), up to 30,000square 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 six 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.
In addition to the improvements identified above, the project includes a Vesting Tentative Map to create up to 18 lots, up to 1,900 condominium lots, and up to 140 vertical lots within the MPMP. 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.
The Vesting Tentative Map and Middlefield Master Plan were previously approved by the City on November 15, 2022 and a Notice of Determination for those approvals was posted on November 18, 2022.
