Located adjacent to Caltrain’s underutilized Hayward Park Station in San Mateo, Station Park Green is a mixed-use, market rate housing development on the site of a former K-Mart.

The Specific Plan includes 599 homes, 10,000 square feet of office space, 25,000 square feet of retail space, a one-acre central community park that connects the surrounding neighborhoods and arterials to the train station, two linear parks, and residential-scale courtyards. The project was selected as a LEED ND pilot project, and allocates spaces for bike lanes, stormwater management and green streets to connect the parks. GLS is working with MVE Architects and Arup to fast-track opportunity to create housing, increase density, provide green open space and provide access to the workplace without the need for automobiles, particularly given the site’s location at the junction of Caltrain and Highways 101 and 92.
