A life science project proposed in Redwood City’s Redwood Shores neighborhood met a roadblock this week after planning staff deemed the application as incomplete a month after being submitted.

IQHQ, the developer behind the proposal, is seeking to demolish an existing five-story office building at 10 Twin Dolphin Drive and to build three five-story lab buildings, a two-story amenities building, a five-story parking structure and one-story child care center in its place.

Thanks DJ staff for this article.

The Redwood City Plan Review Committee (PRC) found IQHQ project plans "incomplete" for the IQHQ proposal to build a life science complex at 10 Twin Dolphin Drive. IQHQ cavalierly responded to this news with, "Many projects are deemed incomplete after first submittal..."


Maybe that is the way these things work, but why would IQHQ leave out important information about a proposed child care center or how IQHQ plans to satisfy the city's inclusionary housing ordinance? We'll have to wait and see what IQHQ has to say about these items as well as the several other "inconsistencies" noted by the PRC in its report.

IQHQ is required to respond to the PRC in writing. However, they are not required to respond to the media concerning the PRC's findings... so they didn't.
