Hines and Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco are pleased to start the process with the City of Redwood City for a preliminary proposal for a new mixed-use project at 1111-1227 Arguello Street along the Arguello Street corridor between Downtown and Whipple Avenue in the Centennial Neighborhood.
1111-1227 Arguello Street is an approximately 3.5-acre site made up of 6 parcels bounded by Whipple Avenue to the North, Arguello Street to the East, and Caltrain to the West.
The Project Site is located within the Centennial Neighborhood and near Downtown Redwood City and is approximately 2000’ (or ½ mile) from the Redwood City Caltrain Station and the Redwood City Transit Center on James Avenue. The Project Site is also two blocks away from the nearest SamTrans bus stop, and an existing bike lane runs adjacent to the site down Arguello Street.
There will be 12 – two bedroom units, 15 – three bedroom units, and 3 – four bedroom units. All units will provide much-needed new homes large enough to provide space for families with children or multi-generational families.
Currently, it is too early to quote prices.
The child care center will be operated by a high quality and state licensed child care provider and open to the public with the goal of serving families with infants and toddlers.
The developer intends to subsidize the cost of tenant improvements and offer a ten-year lease that only charges maintenance and no monthly rent. Eliminating these costs will save an operator over $3 million dollars and allow them increased flexibility on programming and tuition.
At this time solar panels are not currently designed on the office building; however, the building is targeting LEED Gold and could opt to include roof solar panels in service of this target. The residential building will likely include solar panels.
Yes, the building will be 100% electric and comply with the City’s reach codes.
Yes, the Project plans for at least 60 EV charging spaces.
The buildings are designed to be highly water efficient with the latest conservation, plumbing, and efficiency technologies. Additionally, the building will be designed to connect to the City of Redwood City recycled water “purple pipe” system when it is expanded to the Centennial Neighborhood and Arguello Street in the future.
Yes, we are keeping two street trees, and adding 97 additional trees at the streetscape and within the site.
Yes, we will work closely with the City to identify appropriate trees and landscaping plantings native to Redwood City and that require minimal water.
Yes, we intend to utilize a robust TDM program to encourage use of public transit and reduce trips by 52%. We are providing onsite parking for both the office and residential uses.
