The Architectural Review Board is scheduled to review a three-story office development at 123 Sherman Avenue in Menlo Park. The project proposal includes the development of a three-story office building with onsite parking. The project also requests the demolition of four existing buildings on the site.
Mountain View-based WSJ Properties is responsible for the property. KSH Architects is responsible for the designs.
The project will merger three existing parcels. The project will construct a new three-story office building with two levels of below-grade parking for 154 vehicles. The building will also house 76 units.
The office structure will rise to a height of 54 feet, one to two floors taller than its neighboring infrastructure. The building will yield a total built-up area of 176,340 square feet. 53,276 square feet will be residential use, 36,000 square feet is for small office spaces, and 86,620 square feet for parking.
For the office building, white floor plates protruding between curtain-walls and white patterned metal panels are utilized. The residential structure will have a smooth cement facade. Residential balconies will provide private open-air space for every unit, with balustrades alternating between white and gold. A shared gardening space will be open on the second level, near the 4,020 square foot fitness center.
The project site is located near California Avenue station, serviced by Caltrain’s LTD B and local train lines running from San Francisco through San Jose and down to Gilroy along the local line. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
The plans are now expected to be reviewed on December 1st, details of which can be found here. The meeting will also consider the affordable housing project at 3001 El Camino Real, as covered this July.
