Google Middlefield Park

In September 2020, Google LLC, in partnership with LendLease, submitted an application for a Master Plan to remove 14 existing industrial/office buildings in order to construct up to:

  • 1,900 housing units;
  • 2.4 acres of land to be dedicated to City for future affordable housing;
  • 50,000 square feet of active ground-floor uses (including retail, restaurants, services and community space);
  • 1.317 million square feet of office;
  • 10-acres of public parks and open space;
  • two parking structures (district parking) and integrated residential/commercial parking;
  • new private streets;
  • new on- and off-site pedestrian and bicycle improvements; and
  • an optional private district utility system.

The applicant is also requesting a 20-year Development Agreement to accompany the Master Plan and a Tentative Subdivision Map to create up to 18 lots, 140 vertical lots, and 1,900 condominium lots. The project site is generally located at the northeast corner of East Middlefield Road and Ellis Street and north of W. Maude Avenue between Logue Avenue and Clyde Avenue in the P-41 (East Whisman) Precise Plan.

 The intent of the Master Plan is to identify the framework of new development in the 40-acre area, including general building locations, uses, and forms, transportation improvements (including parking), utilities, and public spaces, with phased multi-year implementation. Each phase will go through the City's development review process and require a public hearing.
