The Redwood City Planning Commission on Monday (April 1) will review plans to replace the old Mountain Mike’s Pizza on El Camino near the San Carlos border with townhouses.
The project, slated for 120 El Camino Real, will consist of 12 for-sale townhouses, according to a report from Associate Planner Apollo Rojas.
Owner Helen Wu will be working with Caltrans to improve crossing across El Camino at the corner of Finger Avenue, according to Rojas’ report.
A handful of neighbors have written to Rojas in support of the project.
“The current location is a blight on the surrounding neighborhood and Redwood City,” wrote site neighbor Charlie Ross. “12 new homes are critical to the housing needs, bring vibrancy to the northern beginning of Redwood City, and will improve security with the removal of the condemnable site.”
Ross, along with five other residents, signed a petition in support of the project.
The two buildings will be 38 feet tall, and have 24 parking spaces, according to the report.
The homes would range in size from 1,418 to 2,074 square feet.
Wu will be paying $618,375 in affordable housing fees, according to Rojas’ report.
