MENLO PARK HOUSING PROJECT ENDORSED BY COUNCIL APPROVED
A transit-oriented housing, retail and office development that the Bay Area Council endorsed won unanimous approval by the Menlo Park City Council this week. Station 1300 will create 183 high quality apartment units, including 20 below market rate units, within blocks of Caltrain. Building transit-oriented housing is critical both for helping address the region’s historic housing shortage and reducing dependency on traffic-causing automobiles. The Bay Area Council was proud to attend the meeting Tuesday and testify in support as we advocate for building more housing faster and at less cost to make the Bay Area more affordable for workers and residents.
The Workforce Housing Committee recently endorsed Gateway at Millbrae, which will provide 376 new homes with a large number set aside as affordable units for military veterans. A second project the Council endorsed at MacArthur Transit Village in Oakland will provide 402 sorely needed new homes, 40 of which will be below market rate.
