Mixed-use building now at former Trag’s site in San Mateo | Local News

San Mateo’s newest mixed-use development recently opened its doors at the former Trag’s site, which owner Prometheus Real Estate Group hopes will emerge as a new downtown destination for office, retail and rental use.

San Mateo political officials and others interested in the newest downtown development got a tour last week of the new property at 301 Baldwin Ave. that features 65,000 square feet of office, 19,000 square feet for retail, and 64 units located at 20 N. Ellsworth Ave. as part of the Brickline Flats property. The 131,636-square-foot building downtown also fronts Baldwin Avenue and North B Street. Its east side overlooks the downtown San Mateo Caltrain station, aimed at providing artisan shops and restaurants for retail and housing for young professionals looking to be close to an urban area with nearby amenities.

Outdoor space is plentiful, with a communal rooftop vegetable garden, lounge seating, fire pits, and rooftop decks with amenities like a pizza oven. Lounge areas offer people an overlook view of downtown San Mateo, with numerous glass windows offering natural light throughout the building. Around 255 stalls in four levels of an underground parking garage are available for residents and retail shoppers.

Mayor Amourence Lee, who attended the opening, said the site had a lot of history near one former City Hall site and as a place that housed the popular grocery store but now had a new purpose in addressing housing needs close to the Caltrain station. San Mateo has prioritized building more housing along the transit corridor to address its housing shortage, with mixed-use options often used to help ensure financial feasibility.

“It’s a real triumph to bring such a high-quality mixed-use project to a transit-oriented area,” Lee said at the opening.

Of the 64 units, around 13 are leased so far. The studio

UPDATE: Process Delayed For Massive WeHa Development At UConn Site

WEST HARTFORD, CT — Calling plans to develop the old University of Connecticut property on Asylum Avenue “big” do not do justice to the scope of what’s being pitched.

In fact, adjectives like “gigantic,” “massive” and “humongous” might not even give WEHA Development Group LLC’s (aka West Hartford 1 LLC) proposal its just due.

On Monday, testimony and, possibly, a first decision by a town land-use board was slated to happen in West Hartford. But town officials Friday confirmed a slight delay in the process.

No matter, the project is still marching forward with the creation of, literally, a new community in town the goal — one with housing, stores, parks and businesses all being built at the former university site.

West Hartford Town Planner Todd Dumais said West Hartford 1 LLC actually withdrew its initial applications regarding the project last month, tweaked the proposal, then resubmitted plans June 30 to the town.

At its regular meeting Monday, July 10, at 7 p.m., the West Hartford Plan & Zoning Commission/Inland Wetland Watercourse Agency was to conduct four separate public hearings on the project.

Instead, Dumais said, it will only accept the new applications for the development at that time.

Essentially, he said, the process has been reset. “It starts the process all over again,” Dumais said Friday.

Dumais said the new public hearings are likely to be scheduled for August or September, depending on the commission’s prerogative.

When the PZC takes up the application, it will be acting in its capacity as the
