1300 Bayshore Highway

Proposed Mixed Use Office Development
1300 Bayshore Highway

The City of Burlingame has received an application to redevelop the properties at 1300 Bayshore Highway, on the site of the former Hyatt Cinema. The project applicant proposes to redevelop the site with two eight-story buildings. The buildings would be connected by a screen wall spanning Easton Creek, which runs through the site. There would be a two-story opening between the two buildings on the lower floors that would provide a view corridor out to the bay.

The combined total of the proposed buildings would be 259,717 SF. The uses would include 239,201 SF of office space, 11,887 SF of restaurant space and 8,629 SF of retail space. Parking would be provided at grade and on the second, third and fourth floors of the buildings. Both buildings are proposed to have an overall height of 108’-9” (top of curb) (107’-9” from sea level).

The proposed project would have a total of 917 on-site parking spaces. Parking would be provided at-grade and on the second through the fourth floors in both buildings. There would be two access points to the site along Bayshore Highway, one in the center and one towards the north end. 

The proposal also includes a comprehensive landscape design with a focus on the interior portion of the buildings that would complement Easton Creek that runs through site, and the Bay that abuts the property on the east side. The landscape design includes 21 outdoor conference units that are intended to be used for impromptu and small-format meetings.

The project requires the following permits and actions:

  • Commercial Design Review
  • Conditional Use Permit for Height required for structures over sixty-five (65) feet in height or five (5) stories
  • Conditional Use Permit for Building Width required for structures which are wider than fifty (50) percent of the lot front or exceed the side setback requirements
  • Conditional Use Permit for Retail Use in a designated retail node as shown on the Shoreline subarea plan
  • Parking Variance for parking space and parking aisle dimensions to allow tandem parking spaces

The Burlingame Planning Commission held a second Design Review Meeting on December 11, 2017 to review revisions to the proposal since its initial review. No action was taken on the application.
