Redwood City has a dynamic group of community leaders ready to take their city to the next level. Their timing couldn’t be more perfect since the area is experiencing better economic climate. New housing is being planned in tandem to accommodate the city’s speculative growth.
“So far, the city has an approved environmental impact statement to allow 2,500 new homes and 600,000 square feet of new downtown commercial development (500,000 square feet of offices and 100,000 square feet of retail).”
In 2012, the city created a partnership with Kilroy Realty Corp & Hunter Storm, LLC to build “Redwood Towers” which is going to be a 300,000 sq. ft Class A building very close to the Redwood City Caltrain station & to the downtown area.
“The building is being designed to appeal both to technology companies and professional services. High ceilings, extra restrooms, showers, lockers and Gold certification or higher under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program are all planned for the building and are elements that appeal to tech employers. The San Mateo County Courthouse also sits not far from the station, generating a draw for law firms and other professional services, too.”
Tech companies who love setting shop in areas close to BART or Caltrain will definitely start looking closely at Redwood City.
