Station Park Green
San Mateo, California
Station Park Green, located on the site of a former Kmart, is a 12-acre transit-oriented mixed-use development 20 miles south of San Francisco in San Mateo, California. The project's program includes 599 residential units, 10,000 square feet of office facilities, over 60,000 square feet of retail, including community-serving retail and restaurants.
Station Park Green is planned as a model transit-oriented village. The mixed-use project is centered by a large park that is designed to be activated by residential entrances and neighborhood-serving retail. The park will extend into the residential blocks through a network of pathways and smaller residential courtyards and gardens. The resulting green village will be adjacent to the Hayward Park rail station and will allow residents to connect directly to San Jose and San Francisco.
Station Park Green was called by the National Resource Defense Council ("NRDC") a stunning plan for transit-oriented development in San Mateo, California." It has earned "gold" certification under the LEED for Neighborhood Development program founded by the US Green Building Council. Station Park Green was the second project in the nation to be certified as such, and achieved a Stage 1 Gold rating.
The project has been supported by the Greenbelt Alliance, TransForm's GreenTRIP, the Sierra Club, San Mateo County Economic Development Association, the NRDC, USGBC and the San Mateo Chamber of Commerce.
