Permits have been filed seeking the approval of a new mixed-use project proposed at 201 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. The project proposal includes the construction of a three-story mixed-use building with two levels of on-site parking. Plans call for architectural control and environmental review for the demolition of an existing commercial building and multi-family residential building.
EID Architects is managing the design concepts and construction.
The project will bring twelve residential units on the second and third floors of the three-story development. The total residential area will be 20,929 square feet. Retail space measuring an area of 5,876 square feet and restaurant space measuring 1,200 square feet will be designed on the first floor. The total built-up area is 28,847 square feet. The project also proposes two detached single-family townhomes to be built on the site. A total of 59 parking spaces will be constructed on the site.
As part of the project, two Below Market Rate (BMR) dwelling units would be provided on-site, with a portion of the BMR units proposed as the public benefit. The applicant also proposes to remove two heritage-sized coast redwood trees.
An initial review is pending City Planning Commission’s approval. The proposal also includes a request for a Public Benefit Bonus, with the benefit consisting of rounding up a fractional BMR unit requirement to incorporate two on-site BMR units into the project.
An estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet.
