A new transit-oriented district hopes to bring affordable housing and economic vitality to downtown Redwood City, Calif.

  • Date: 10/28/2022

Redwood City is poised to finalize plans for the creation of a new Transit District in the heart of the city.

First proposed more than two years ago, the Transit District is a multi-pronged effort to rebuild the train station, create new housing and job opportunities, and improve pedestrian and bike-friendly routes through the downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods.

The plan would dedicate over an acre of land for expansion of the train tracks; 1,100 housing units, including up to 343 affordable units; and a minimum of 25,000 sq. ft. of public open space. The Planning Commission considered recent amendments to the proposal, which included lowering the office development cap from 1.63 million to 1.23 million square feet, removing minimum parking requirements and prioritizing bike and pedestrian safety.
