The East Palo Alto City Council will review preliminary plans Tuesday for an office development at a 17.8-acre site located at 1990 Bay Road.

Harvest Properties, Inc., an Oakland-based real estate developer, submitted a preliminary application for the 1990 Bay Road "The Landing" Project, a plan to develop four parcels of land between Bay Road and Weeks Street.

The project proposes four office buildings of 918,000 square feet of space for research and development, laboratories and retail. It also includes 7 acres of open space such as a public plaza and dog park.

Harvest Properties filed a preliminary application for the project in February 2020 and held two community meetings in January and February of this year. East Palo Alto's Planning Commission then held a study session on the project on Feb. 22.

On Tuesday, the City Council will review the plan and provide feedback to the applicant and city staff.

We don't need more office buildings. This will just exacerbate the jobs/housing imbalance.

That looks great. A lot of new construction in the baylands which will provide jobs. FB has a city planned on Willow east of 101. Making good use of land to the benefit of the East PA city which is has a lot of new growth and new city sections. That translates to jobs.
