Planning applications have been submitted seeking the approval of a mixed-use project at 1057 El Camino Real in Redwood City. The project proposal consists of developing a strip mall into a transit village featuring new homes, commercial space, and public open space.
Lowe and Eden Housing is the project applicant and developer. HOK is managing the design concept and construction.
The new development, Sequoia Station, will create a 17.5-acre transit district featuring 631 homes with 254 affordable homes offered as a mix of two and three-bedroom units. About 377 residences will be priced at market rates. 1.23 million square feet of space will be allotted for office use. 166,600 square feet of retail space, including 10,000 square feet dedicated to on-site child care is also part of the project.
An onsite parking space with a capacity of 2,700 vehicles is proposed. Developers will set aside an open space of 86,000 square feet. The project will also provide more than an acre of land to Caltrain for its expansion.
The estimated date of project completion has not been announced yet.
The property site currently houses a shopping mall spanning an area of 12 acres, owned by Safeway Inc and Regency Centers Corporation. Toward the northeast of the property run Caltrain tracks and the Redwood City Station.
