The DJ is reporting on Monday's Planning Commission meeting where the plan for a new four story retail/office building garnered better reviews
The Burlingame Planning Commission commended the new look of a mixed-use office project proposed to be built at 225 California Drive during a meeting Monday, Sept. 28.
The project returned for a second design review, after commissioners, residents and business owners identified a variety of concerns in July regarding how well the four-story building worked into the existing character of the neighborhood near the city’s Caltrain station.
But commissioners lauded a revised version of the building, which appears much more traditional in architectural style than the initial, modern design.
The engineering feat that remains to be fleshed out is
Below ground, three levels of parking are proposed to be built, which would offer a total of 130 spaces, when combined with available parking on the street level.
At least access to this deep garage is now from Highland Ave. instead of the one-way alley in the back. It's a little hard to see in the artist's rendering but there are trees out front.
