If Greenheart Land Co. gets city approval to build a 420,000-square-foot office and housing complex on El Camino Real in Menlo Park, residents and employees there can expect to receive free, unlimited Caltrain passes, the company says on a new website, station1300.com.
The complex would be built at 1300 El Camino Real between the Residence Inn hotel and Oak Grove Avenue, about a block from the Caltrain station.
All residents and employees at the complex, which Greenheart is calling Station 1300, will receive free, unlimited Caltrain passes, according to the website.
Greenheart says the office buildings will be constructed to operate on "net zero energy," meaning they will create as much energy as they use. The buildings would have solar panels and a cooling and heating system using recirculated water, the website says.
The website was created in advance of the release of the project's environmental review document, expected later this month, said Steve Pierce, principal at Greenheart Land Co.
Renderings and more information about the proposed complex are on the website. Greenheart proposes to build 182 rental apartments (10 are planned to be below market rate), between 188,900 and 199,300 square feet of office space, and between 18,600 square feet to 29,000 square feet of space for "community serving businesses," such as retail, restaurants, or personal services.
The website has a petition that visitors can sign and comment on.
