A recent site visit by SFYIMBY reveals that construction is well underway for the mixed-use development at Middle Plaza in Menlo Park, Silicon Valley. The project will bring 215 new apartments beside 10,000 square feet of retail, a new public park, and 276,610 square feet of new office space within walking distance from a Caltrain station. Stanford University is sponsoring the development.
Permits have been filed for a new three-story educational building at 560 Fremont Road on Stanford’s Santa Clara County campus. The development will require over 4,200 cubic yards of land moved for grading, suggesting a sizable footprint. The site is accessible to transit via either Stanford station or Palo Alto station and Caltrain, a busy commuter rail corridor connecting San Francisco to San Jose, along with other suburban towns and cities it passes through.
