Update on the meeting -

More studies needed for proposed Walgreens (Daily Journal)

Plans for a new 24-hour drug store proposed for the corner of El Camino Real and Burlingame Avenue will require more review and different windows.

On Monday, the Burlingame Planning Commission requested the applicant expand its traffic and environmental study of the plan, as well as revisit windows to allow pedestrians to see into the store. Currently, the windows proposed would serve as display cases. The updated traffic and environmental studies would look at the impacts of the upcoming Safeway development on Walgreens.

The proposal calls for moving Walgreens to 260 El Camino Real where a closed Chevron station currently sits. Plans include demolishing the station to build a new 12,403-square-foot commercial building with 10,168-square-feet of retail space on the ground level and 2,235-square-feet of second story storage space. Two entryways at the corner of El Camino Real and Burlingame and one at the south side of the building are also planned.

The proposal could come back for further study or as an action item depending on the depth of changes required from the further study.

At the same meeting, the commission approved a conditional use permit for the expansion of a gas service station and convenience store at 1480 Broadway. The proposal includes an existing 1,234-square-foot building and converting the existing service bay to a convenience store. The store would be 287 square feet to approximately 1,047 square feet. A storage area and bathroom will be included.

I had heard that Perry's, a San Francisco restaurant chain was moving to Howard Avenue. Do you have any information on that? And do you know if Bev Mo is moving to Burlingame Avenue? And if so, where will it be going? What other new stores/restaurants will be coming to town? And speaking of resaurants - when will the new Burger Joint open and what has been the hold up? Inquiring minds want to know.
