A new multi-family residential project has been approved for development at 4350 El Camino Real in Los Altos, Santa Clara County. The project proposal includes the development of a new five-story residential building with onsite parking. Plans call for the demolition of an exisiting gas service station on the site.
Seidel Architects is responsible for the designs. Reed Gilliand is the landscape architect.
The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.6 acres. The exisiting gasoline service station buildings, pump islands, asphalt paving and landscaping is slated for demolition. The underground fuel and oil storage tanks will also be removed. The project will bring a new five-story residential building with two below-ground parking levels. The new building will contain 47 residential units, including 10 one-bedroom, 32 two-bedroom, and five three-bedroom units. Seven units will be below market-rate (affordable) units. The proposed height of the building is 56 feet, with an additional six feet, four inches to the tops of the mechanical equipment screens and stair tower.
The project features a courtyard area with seating areas and raised planters on the ground floor of the building, which will provide approximately 12,359 square feet of common open space for project residents. Vehicle access to and from the proposed parking garage is provided via a single driveway on El Camino Real.
The estimated construction timeline has not been announced yet. The project site is located across the street from another project proposed at 4345 El Camino Real.
