High Density Housing
Original post made by pares on Apr 24, 2013
PAWeekly, how about an article describing the number of units going in at all these projects?
Does this concern our city leaders?

The housing developments, which do look dense, are in several different cities and school districts. One would imagine people will move in this children - upscale, new, top school districts although high density style. I take that to mean people will be driving in various directions (I sure can't see small children crossing El Camino Real on their own to attend a prime Los Altos elementary school)! I except traffic to get really bad around there in all directions. I guess there has not been any coordinated effort to look at traffic in a multi-city sense around there.

Sorry, several typos:
One would imagine people will move in WITH children...
I EXPECT traffic to get really bad around there in all directions...

The hole next to Lozano's - also in Mtn View - will turn into 193 apartments.
The PA Bowl site will be 26 4 br three story townhouses plus a four story, 140(?) room Hilton hotel.
The hole across from Arbor Real is for another Hilton Hotel, also four stories and around 140 rooms.
The expansion of the retirement community on El Camino Way is under construction.
And yesterday I noticed some of the those double debris/dirt trailers heading down towards Park near Frys ..must be some digging going on there too.
Los Altos is busy too..
46 new condos at the corner of San Antonio and Loucks - one block in from El Camino
and soon-to-be 167 1&2 br apartments plus 38 townhouses at the old Marie Calendar/Los Altos supply site on El Camino.
Mountain View is also considering a 200(?) unit apartment building on El Camino across from the Sears site... plus the old Safeway site on California will be up for grabs and the owner of the Target site is planning redevelopment.
I'm less worried about future traffic than about staying out of the way now of the construction trucks that decide they want to be in my lane.
