Burlingame Residences — A Transit-Oriented Community
August 6th, 2020
PLAT’s latest Bay Area project is undergoing review by the City of Burlingame’s Planning Department before finalizing schematic design. This entitlement phase ensures the City can make comments and approve major developments so that the final result embodies all parties’ shared vision.
Situated only blocks from the Millbrae transit hub, this site provides easy access to Bart, Caltrain and SFO Airport. Burlingame sits between the scenic San Francisco Bay and undeveloped coastal hills. Residents will have access to local amenities as well as easy reach to regional and international destinations.
Downtown Burlingame has been dominated by institutions like medical centers and retail hubs. However, the City is looking into the future and partnered with designers to envision sustainable living and a reduced carbon footprint. With the goal of creating a lively community, PLAT has designed an ecologically-minded landscape with a modern aesthetic.
Outdoor amenities reach into the public realm, creating a new corner plaza to soften the urban concrete and provide shade for passersby. The interior amenities on the other hand encourage gatherings with a firepit and lounge area; outdoor kitchen and dining under a trellis; and a pool and spa complete with poolside lounge chairs. Surrounding this podium, lush vegetation shelters residents from downtown noise.
Benefiting from an excellent location and deeply invested shareholders, Burlingame Residences is primed to become a vibrant community.
