1.4 million square feet. Anyone know what's there now.

There are old buildings there now. They want to replace them with new buildings. This is a private campus that is off limits to the public anyway, so it shouldn't have much effect on the community, aside from construction issues.
Despite the diverse list of projects mentioned in this article, my understanding is that the majority of their work currently is and always has been military related. SRI used to be called the Stanford Research Institute and was owned by Stanford University, but the university divested itself during the Vietnam War.

Thank you for the question, Frugal.
SRI is requesting 1.38 million square feet. That is exactly equal to the existing square footage today. It is 11 percent less than what SRI's Conditional Development Permit currently allows.
