Development permits have been filed seeking approval of a new residential project proposed for development at 500 East 4th Avenue in San Mateo, San Mateo County. The project proposal includes the construction of a mixed-use complex offering spaces for residential and retail uses. Demolition will be required for five structures, including two pre-1888 wood frame houses, a 1932-built former market, and two low-slung mid-century commercial buildings. A former gas station at 524 East 4th Avenue has already been demolished.
