Council-Backed Housing Project Gets OK in Mtn. View
A little-used parking lot will be repurposed to build 303 new homes as part of a mixed-use project the Bay Area Council endorsed and the Mountain View City Council unanimously approved this week. The project by Council member Sares Regis will include 203 apartments, of which 15 percent will be priced below market rates, and 100 condominiums, of which 10 percent will be below market rate.
Over five years, Sares Regis worked with community leaders to envision a welcoming space that’s accessible to transit, includes new bike amenities, neighborhood retail and encourages pedestrian use with a new public plaza, and other generous community benefits. The Council partnered with the Bay Area Housing Advocacy Coalition, Mountain View YIMBY and Silicon Valley Leadership Group to advocate for approval of this badly needed “missing middle” housing.
The Council is proud to have leaders in the housing development industry like Sares Regis bringing thoughtful communities to the region, and we’re grateful for the Mountain View’s leadership on housing.
