The 808 Alameda development is designed to benefit residents, neighbors and the overall community, as well as support San Carlos housing and climate goals. Key elements of this are the preservation of open space, use of advanced green building techniques, and creation and ongoing management of new community spaces, amenities and connections.
The new neighborhood is designed to be open and easily accessible to the broader community with a focus on safety and security of both the built and natural environments.
Improvements to the site include new paths, viewpoints and gathering places throughout, as well as a community hub with bike and car parking at the entrance along Alameda de las Pulgas, available to all San Carlans.
To increase accessibility and safety, a new bus shelter and a crosswalk with a flashing beacon system are planned on Alameda de las Pulgas, in addition to new bike lane connections at San Carlos Avenue.
Designed to be a Sustainability Showcase
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.
