240 Lorton Avenue

Mixed Use Office Building

The City of Burlingame has approved an application to redevelop the property at 240 Lorton Avenue. The  site will be redeveloped with a four-story, mixed use office building with 1,375 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and 13,801 square feet of office space on the upper floors. The project will include two roof deck areas located on the fourth floor totaling 1,820 SF. The larger roof deck will contain various plants in planter boxes and seating areas.

A total of 15 parking spaces are provided on-site; 14 spaces in a mechanical vehicle lift system and 1 at-grade disabled-accessible space. This represents a 31-space balance. Payment of in-lieu fees is provided as an option through the Downtown Specific Plan for projects within the parking sector. The applicant will pay parking in-lieu fees for the balance of spaces required for the proposed project.

With the proposed roof deck area at the front of the building, the massing and height of the building transitions from three stories (44’-6” in height) at the front of the building to four stories (55’-0” in height) at the rear. The approval includes a Conditional Use Permit to exceed a building height of 35’-0”.
