Grand plans to redevelop the Shops of Tanforan into a 44-acre mixed-use village with 2 million square feet of life science buildings, retail and 1,000 multi-family homes was met with serious concern by San Francisco International Airport over noise and how the building heights could interfere with the flight path.

Still, the San Bruno City Council decided to override that concern as outlined in Airport and Land Use Committee zoning restrictions stating the area would be too loud for residential housing at a meeting Nov. 15. The committee, which is part of the City/County Association of Governments of San Mateo County, expressed concerns in a letter to the city over its general plan which reimagines the Shops at Tanforan and the San Bruno Pet Hospital as possible residential locations on El Camino Real.
