there is also an empty lot across the street ....
sure enough, that building is gone. here is the approach from the north, where you can also see the other lot in the foreground



and here is the lot itself

Veteran Peninsula developer wants to see San Mateo County go vertical
By Blanca Torres – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times
May 24, 2018, 2:32pm PDT Updated May 24, 2018, 5:09pm

Steve Dostart wants to see the Peninsula go up. He means that figuratively and literally. For a region known for some of the most cutting-edge industries, schools and residents, the Peninsula’s buildings seem to fall short — they should be much taller to keep up with all the local talent. Dostart focuses on transit-oriented development to address the region’s lack of housing and traffic congestion in a way that can maintain the community’s quality of life. Like most other developers focused on the Peninsula, he’s dealt with long entitlements and residents opposing his projects.

He’s been involved in close to 3 million square feet of office development for tenants including Hewlett Packard, Goldman Sachs & Co., Morgan Stanley and Synopsys. His firm recently completed and leased up 601 Marshall St. in Redwood City, a $100 million plus, 136,000-square-foot Class A office building.

Dostart serves on the taskforce for the Grand Boulevard Initiative, an effort to revitalize and redevelop properties along El Camino Real . . . .

Seems like an idea a lot of us would share.

An affordable 100-unit apartment complex proposed near Milpitas’ almost-done BART station cleared a key hurdle last week.

If the project is approved, Lyon told commissioners he expects construction to begin by March 2020 and completion by September 2021.


Baker Lyon, the project manager for developer Resources for Community Development, said 23 of the units would be studios available to tenants who earn $31,920 a year for the entire household and 40 would be one-bedroom units for those earning $71,820 a year.

Twenty-seven apartments would be two-bedroom units for households earning up to $86,220 a year and 12 would be three-bedroom units for those earning $99,000 each year.

Lyon said 20 of the units would be reserved for veterans and 20 for those with special needs, such as recently homeless people, seniors or people with disabilities.

This would be a nice addition to the area.

Overall this is a pretty nice project, but I wish the buildings weren't all painted the exact same color. Makes the project look a little bit institutional.

Nice to see San Carlos so close to reality! For as awful as the northernmost Peninsula cities (Brisbane, Millbrae, etc) have been regarding blocking housing, and your standard Palo Alto nonsense, refreshing what Redwood City and San Carlos and San Mateo have been building...densifying downtown cores near CalTrain (or in San Mateo's case, building a whole other new downtown!).

speaking of San Mateo, we can check in on Station Park Green at Hayward Park Caltrain...

the northern end



moving south...





and, at Hillsdale/Bay Meadows, the third office building is coming along





looking back at the second office building (occupied) in foreground, and the new one in the distance on the left



the tracks will move to the west (out of the pic to the left) with the grade separation project, and the in-between area I think will be a narrow parking lot.
