The draft supplemental environmental impact report has been published for the Middlefield Park master plan, a dense mixed-use development with 1,900 new homes and offices planned in Mountain View, Santa Clara County. The document will be available for public comment from now until early June for review by the Mountain View Community Development Department. Google is responsible for the project as the property owner, with Lendlease as the developer and sponsor.
Demolition crews have cleared the former five-story structure that stood at 30 Van Ness Avenue. Next for the property is a mixed-use skyscraper that will expand the high-rise profile of Civic Center’s Market & Octavia Area Plan district, or ‘The Hub.’ Construction will create a 47-story tower with offices, 333 condominiums, and a performing arts space. Lendlease, a multinational Australian-based company behind many high-profile projects worldwide, is the project developer.
The Victorian-era home to Poor House Bistro has been moved from 91 South Autumn Street to 317 West St. John Street in Little Italy, San Jose. The relocation comes ahead of Downtown West, Google’s massive plans to redevelop the low-density area surrounding Diridon Station with high-density offices, housing, and retail. Project site maps indicate 91 South Autumn Street will be replaced with an office building.
SERA Architects has published new designs for a planned two-tower residential development at 280 McEvoy Street and 699 West San Carlos Street in West San Carlos, San Jose. The proposal would create 365 new affordable homes split between the Family and the Workforce towers by Diridon Station. Lendlease and First Community Housing are jointly responsible for the development.
The City of Mountain View’s Environmental Planning Commission is scheduled for a public review of the Google North Bayshore Masterplan. The development is expected to redevelop 127 acres with thousands of housing units, offices, shops, and public parks. Google is responsible for the proposal, with Lendlease managing development.
