The 808 Alameda de las Pulgas development is designed to benefit future residents, existing neighbors and the overall community, as well as support San Carlos' housing and climate goals.

THE COMMUNITY

  • significant additional housing with 10 homes affordable to low-income families

  • bus shelter with bike parking

  • crosswalks at the entrance including a flashing beacon across Alameda de las Pulgas

  • site stormwater control upgrades

  • site fire management upgrades

  • public trail from Alameda de las Pulgas to the property line at both Dundee Lane and Heather Drive for future trail connections

  • public through-road to neighboring lots for a future road connection to Coronado Avenue

High-Performance Building Design 

SUSTAINABILITY

The sustainable design approach directly supports many elements of the City of San Carlos Climate Action Plan. This includes advanced building technology and materials, as well as low-impact construction practices. Traffic, noise and duration of construction will be minimized through use of innovative building techniques.
