There is no difference between live-work and a regular apartment. 17% of residents already live-work in their houses and apartments. Read The Third Wave.

Everything's Jake

Looking forward to voting out any council member who votes for increased population in B-game as well as destroying these historic and cute little cottages, as they did on Myrtle Drive. Enough!

Why don't our suburban cities get together and tell the state to 'pound salt' on housing mandates?

I do not understand why someone would move here and then constantly complain that "We need to change things."

If you don't like it here, move somewhere else. Most of us living here like it the way it is.

Take your unhappiness and go away.


When we get told to conserve water, stop watering our lawns/trees/plants and take 2 minute showers, I'll be thinking of the two old ladies who lived where 44 units are going in........

Construction for new condominiums in a five-story, 44-unit live/work development at 619-625 California Drive was approved unanimously by the Burlingame Planning Commission.

The live/work units on the second, third and fourth floors range from 741 square feet to 1,234 square feet in area. Each live/work unit will contain a living area, kitchen, bathroom, laundry closet, sleeping area, either a studio or one-bedroom, and a work area.

Burchall also has another project across the street that is expected to begin construction next year and said this proposed project would follow after the first one is completed.

The site’s history includes the house where Marie Hatch lived for 66 years, and the last 30 of those years with her friend Georgia Rothrock, when they were evicted by the man who inherited the home and said he had to sell it to satisfy the terms of a trust agreement.



I remember the "owner" of that home.
She worked at Copenhagen Bakery. She always presented a "Rough Persona." After getting to know her a couple of years, she really was a "Softy" at heart.

NIGHTMARE ON BROADWAY - Just now, driving west on Broadway, between Rollins Rd and California Dr., I was cut off and stopped by three different cars.

By all means, let's continue to build and build and build, even though we have the worst intersection, in all of San Mateo County, at California and Broadway!
