Document Description
Construction of approximately 1.46 million gross square feet of life science/office uses in three 11-story buildings and two parking structures (up to 10.5 stories) containing a total of 3,525 parking spaces on a 12-acre site between Bayshore Highway and the San Francisco Bay shoreline. The Project provides for flexibility in the end use, ranging from an overall building program of 100 percent life science use to a 100 percent professional office use or a combination thereof. The Project also includes various amenities (open landscaped spaces with a variety of public amenities and gathering spaces), as well as a total of 5,000 square feet of café/restaurant space that would be in two different locations on the site in two of the proposed buildings. A new 1,475-foot segment of Bay Trail is proposed to connect the current trail gap along the Project site, and a total of 215,000 square feet (approximately 41 percent) of the Project site would be landscaped and publicly-accessible open space. A public plaza and seating area is proposed at the intersection of Bayshore Highway and Airport Boulevard/Broadway. The Project proposes sea level rise protection measures in compliance with the requirements of the City of Burlingame Municipal Code. Proposed off-site improvements include new and enhanced roadway, bicycle and pedestrian facilities along Bayshore Highway. These include lane restriping, new medians, and signal modifications at the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) intersection of US-101 northbound and southbound off-ramps (at Bayshore Highway and Broadway, respectively). Additional improvements to street lighting and landscaping would be made along Bayshore Highway in the vicinity of the Project site. The Project is expected to be constructed in three overlapping phases, for a total duration of slightly more than three years. The Project involves demolition of all existing buildings and surface parking lots on the site.
