Google received approval to build nearly 10,000 new units of housing near its future HQ campus in Mountain View, CA. The city gave its unanimous blessing on the North Bayshore Precise Plan, an ambitious pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use development also envisioned to deliver 3.6 million square feet of office, as well as retail and park space over the coming decade.
Mountain View Vice Mayor Lenny Siegel called the proposed development a “cutting-edge plan” that serves as a model that will push the city forward in terms of creating the “right kind of community.”
Google expects to submit a series of master plans for multiple sites it owns in North Bayshore early next year. The company owns about 58% of the land slated for new residential development. Roughly 70% of the housing is targeted for studio or one-bedroom apartments, with a goal to deliver 20% of the apartments as affordable units.
