Project Description: The existing Burlingame Recreation Center would be demolished and the new Burlingame Community Center would be constructed in approximately the same location with a different footprint. The new Community Center building would be two stories in height and approximately 35,700 square feet in size. The existing playground adjacent to the existing Community Center would be moved north to accommodate the proposed location for the new Community Center and address the City’s request for the playground to be further away from the street. A surface parking lot and a below-ground level parking garage would be constructed in the eastern corner of the project site. In total, 84 parking spaces would be provided, with approximately 40 parking spaces in the below-ground level and 44 spaces in the surface parking lot.
