Development permits have been submitted for a request of pre-screening for a new mixed-use project at 955 Alma Street in University South, Palo Alto. The project proposal includes constructing thirty-six innovation micro-studio residences and adding a new basement for parking use. Heather Young Architects is managing the project plan, design, and construction.
The total area of the lot is 10,500 square feet. The residential units will be built over an existing office space. The proposed area of the rebuilt office is 6,348 square feet.
