Support for Station 1300 Greenheart project

Dear Council members,

I strongly support the Station 1300 project.

It brings new housing units, a beautiful design, two moderate-size office buildings, and is right across the street from the Caltrain station.

The addition of 180+ housing units adjacent to the Caltrain station is a transit-oriented home-run. Adding these new apartments will also help to ease the pressure on rent increases in Menlo Park and adjacent cities.

Greenheart's balanced design matches the goals of our Downtown Plan. There will be courtyards and plazas, community serving uses, a dog park, bicycle improvements, retail stores, and all with an attractive Spanish Revival architecture. Other benefits include the underground garage (with 900+ parking spaces) whose public spaces will benefit all of downtown, a 47% open-space ratio, the $2.1 million payment to the city's Public Amenity Fund, and 20 BMR housing units.

Given the project's Caltrain adjacency, and Greenheart's aggressive program of "transportation demand management" for the tenants and residents, the impacts on traffic and transportation will be much less than would be expected from such a project anywhere else in the city.

Thank you for all the work you do to improve and modernize our wonderful city.
