A year and a half into submitting a preliminary application, development process for a residential project is moving forward at 3705 Haven Avenue in Menlo Park. The project proposal includes the construction of an eight-story residential building. The developer also proposes to demolish an existing commercial building on the site.

Oliver Davis via March Capital Fund is the project applicant. LDP Architecture is responsible for the designs.

The project site is a parcel spanning an area of 0.6 acres. The project will bring 99 residential units into an eight-story apartment building. A previous proposal included bringing 99 units in to a three-story apartment building. New updated plans reveal an eight-story apartment building offering the same amount of units, with new commercial space added on the ground floor. The commercial space will span an area of 1,550 square feet. Of the 99 units, 10 units would be affordable to very-low-income households. The developer will utilize the bonus level development permitted by the City’s Municipal Code and State Density Bonus Law.

The building facade will rise to a height of 93 feet. The mixed-use will also offer common landscaped open area spanning 11,730 square feet and 4,670 square feet of publicly accessible outdoor space. Within the proposed building, the project includes three common outdoor spaces for residents, located on the third floor (podium level), fifth floor, and rooftop.

Additionally, the project proposes an on-site community amenity that would not involve any additional building construction and would be provided within the proposed building, or payment of the in-lieu fee, or a combination of an on-site amenity and a fee.
