car-sharing vehicles, will offer residents and workers options beyond using personal
automobiles. Unlike the current form of the site setback far from the street, the new buildings
will be positioned right at the street with entrances opening onto sidewalks to create a safe and
aesthetically pleasing pedestrian realm. The location is a compact and walkable design that
responds to the San Mateo Corridor Plan, which calls for dense development and additional
residential uses clustered around transit stations.

Among the green building and infrastructure strategies proposed for the development and site
design are solar orientation, rooftop gardens, and low-impact stormwater management
features, primarily through the design of the parks and streetscape. In addition, at least 40% of
the square footage will undergo LEED certification. Strategies to reduce energy use and water
use will be employed wherever possible in all buildings. Tree-lined streets will help to shade Architect/Planner: Perkins + Will
