The developer who recently purchased lots where seven single-family homes stand across the street from Redwood City’s McKinley Middle School has submitted plans to construct 17 three-story townhomes.

With experience building clusters of townhomes in residential neighborhoods in Palo Alto, Sunnyvale and Los Altos, the developer California Communities is looking to increase the density of housing on the Harrison Avenue site in the city’s Mt. Carmel neighborhood.

Instead of adding high density housing here, there and everywhere...why not build a 35 story tower. Wouldn't that accommodate just about everybody that needs a place to live?

fine you want high density, 3 story town homes built on less than 2000 sq. foot pads...then pay the real costs of mitigation...or build them all affordable........ these carpetbaggers come in and use the housing crisis cliche' to get approval but then build market rate, make the affordability crisis worse and walk away with tremendous profits from the city letting them upzone..... but inevitably, pay little to nothing in mitigation fees....it's a great gig if you can get it...
