New plans have been approved by the City Council for low-density housing at 930 Oddstad Boulevard in Pacifica, San Mateo County. The plan will replace a long-closed elementary school with 70 homes, including eleven affordable housing units. Brookwood Equities is the project applicant.
The development will span 7.5 acres with nine buildings. There will be 44 apartment units and 26 townhome residences. 11 units will be designated affordable housing for low- and moderate-income households. The apartment sizes will vary, with 31 one-bedrooms, 29 two-bedrooms, and ten three-bedroom homes. Parking will be included for 142 cars and 42 bicycles. The project will build around 49,200 square feet for housing on the 325,479 square feet on lots 2 and 3.
Seidel Architects and BDE Architecture are collaborating on the craftsman-style design. Facade materials will include fiber cement, wide lap siding, and board & batten siding. Asphalt shingle roofing will cap each building. Site amenities will include a community center, a 900-square-foot office, and plenty of landscaped open space. Jett is responsible for the landscape architecture.
Vehicular entry to the site will be created with an internal driveway connected to Oddstad Boulevard. The property is located by Frontierland Park, on the eastern edge of the city. Residents will be thirty minutes away from San Pedro Beach via public transit or 20 minutes via bicycle.
The existing Oddstad School was a part of the Pacifica School District from 1964 up through 2005. The district closed the facilities due to a declining school-age population in the area.
Construction is expected to last around 12-15 months, spread across two phases. The first phase will create four buildings with 45 homes, and the second phase of work will create 25 homes across three buildings.
