This live-work development is
on a 6.5 acre former light industrial site in East Palo
Alto, near the Ravenswood Open Space Preserve and the
Baylands Nature Preserve. The design preserves and enhances
the current open space; a community open space area
along the marsh landscape that would include a rain
water garden to create wetland habitat and filter storm
water runoff. New public access trails along the edges
of the property improve the linkages of the surrounding
neighborhood to the San Francisco Bay.
a cohesive live-work community is an important goal
of this development; the 78 live-work units are clustered
round a central green that also contains a community
building and children’s playground. The units will be
modular in construction, pre-fabricated off-site for
greater efficiency and sustainability.
