On October 15, 2021, Lane Partners LLC, submitted an application on behalf of SRI International to update SRI’s research campus and create a new transit-oriented, mixed-use district adjacent to the City’s Downtown Area and Caltrain Station.
The Parkline proposal includes a mixed-use neighborhood with new housing units at a range of affordability levels, new bicycle and pedestrian connections, more than 25 acres of public open space, and a new sustainable research and development campus that would replace and consolidate SRI’s existing facilities with no net increase in commercial square footage.
The proposal for the approximately 63.2-acre site includes:
- 400 new rental housing units (apartment units and town homes), including a mix of affordable and market rate rental housing
- over 25 acres of landscaped, publicly accessible open space
- Replacement of nearly 1.1 million square feet of outdated research buildings with five sustainable office/R&D/life science buildings, and a new amenity building for workers
- A network of new bike and pedestrian pathways that enhance accessibility and connectivity through Menlo Park, including creating safer routes for students
- Retaining three existing buildings for SRI's continued operation in Menlo Park
- Providing new community-oriented retail, such as a juice bar and bike repair station, in addition to new recreational opportunities
