The City of San Mateo is working with MidPen Housing to bring new housing and a large garage to two downtown parcels, 480 East 4th Avenue and 400 East 5th Avenue. The San Mateo County proposal will bring 225 new units at Kiku Crossing and parking for nearly seven hundred vehicles, despite being near mass transit. MidPen Housing is the property owner.
Filed in 2018, plans by Onni Group and IBI Group proposed a 638-foot tall apartment tower and a 16-story office building that would launch Emeryville, a dense city between Berkeley and Oakland, into the Bay Area’s skyline. Eventually, plans for the tower were withdrawn in 2020. Now, a new developer expects to build at 5801-5861 Christie Avenue, but with a significantly reduced profile.
Construction has topped out for 353 Main Street, a residential infill by the freeway in Redwood City, San Mateo County. The project aims to add over a hundred affordable homes to the city’s housing market. Santa Clara-based ROEM Corporation is responsible for the development.
Demolition permits have been filed ahead of construction for the six-story residential infill at 4550 Mission Street in Outer Mission, San Francisco. The project will replace two existing commercial buildings with 69 new rental homes, including 17 affordable units. David Chen is responsible for the application via ANJE LLC.
