Two six-story residential developments in Millbrae meet the criteria to use a state law that seeks to streamline the planning process, but city officials worry they won’t have a say over design and traffic concerns.

The Millbrae Avenue and El Camino Real intersection was given an ‘F’ rating, the lowest grade possible, and crossing the intersection takes an average of 82 seconds to cross, according to the California High-Speed Rail Authority website.

" It would replace a medical office building to construct a six-story building with 30 apartment units, 27 of which will be offered at market rate and the remaining three made affordable for applicants who make 30% under the county median." This sure doesn't sound like affordable housing is the goal.
