Document Description
The Project would demolish two buildings, merge two parcels, and construct an office/research-and-development (R&D) building with parking on the Project site. The office/R&D building would be sited at the front of the Project site, along Old Bayshore Highway and rise eight stories tall with an area of 314,921 gross square feet (gsf). Parking would be provided along Mahler Road, in a standalone, seven-story, 208,423-gsf aboveground parking garage with 639 parking spaces and 72 bicycle parking spaces. Project development would include 5,642 gsf of ground-floor lobby and tenant amenity space, including a cafe, and provide a 6,900-gsf public plaza/open space courtyard. To address flooding issues, the Project would raise the site's base elevation to 13 feet above sea level and install a permanent sea wall at 15.5 feet above seal level along Mills Creek, which would provide a 1.5-foot wall from the open space courtyard. The Project is proposed as a Tier 3 project, and at this location within the City may reach a maximum FAR of 2.75 and may exceed a maximum height of 65-feet with approval of a Special Permit by the Burlingame Planning Commission. Project operation is expected to generate 756 employees between the office, R&D, and cafe uses.
