Menlo Park plan spurs Crittenden development

Park Theatre site set for architectural study

The site of a Menlo Park landmark may become something new, according to property owner Howard Crittenden. He told the Almanac on Aug. 4 that the Park Theatre, long defunct at 1275 El Camino Real, may give way now that the city has passed the downtown/El Camino Real specific plan.

He declined to elaborate on what it may become, saying that it depends on the completion of architectural studies. Another developer, Sunil Suri, had expressed interest in renovating the theater or converting it to office space, according to an email sent to the council, but reportedly did not stop to check with Mr. Crittenden first.
