Burlingame Park Square
An application has been submitted for a new mixed use development with two levels of below grade parking, ground floor commercial uses, a public plaza, and 127 condominium units in a new 5-story building encompassing the former post office site and adjacent City Parking Lot E, located at 220 Park Road. The approvals required include Environmental Review, Design Review, Condominium Permit, General Plan Amendment and Rezoning to allow residential uses on the ground floor in the HMU (Howard Mixed Use) District, and Side Setback Variance (for areas abutting residential uses).
Currently, the site consists of the former United States Post Office, which has been determined to be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criteria A and C. The proposed project would also include an adjacent City of Burlingame public parking lot, known as “Lot E”. The City of Burlingame and the applicant have entered into an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) to consider a proposal that would encompass both the 220 Park Road property and Parking Lot E.
The project would include replacement parking for that which is currently located in Lot E as well as a public plaza fronting Park Road.
