Largest development in Downtown Redwood City history since the Theatre Way Project, will bring 1,000 more employees to Downtown once complete in 2015.
Redwood City, Calif. – Crossing 900, the largest development since the completion of the Theatre Way project will reside at what is now a City parking lot on Middlefield Road, adjacent to the Redwood City Caltrain station, and across from the Theatre Way retail/cinema complex. This project is a new link between the Sequoia Station shopping center, the Caltrain station, Theatre Way and Downtown Redwood City. This newest addition to Redwood City’s thriving downtown is a key component of the vision contained in the Downtown Precise Plan that has helped ignite what is considered a renaissance of Redwood City’s downtown.
Crossing 900 will be a mid‐rise office building consisting of 300,000 square feet of brand new Class A
office space, approximately 5,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space, more than 900 covered parking spaces, and the capacity to accommodate up to 1,000 employees once completed in 2015. With the addition of 1,000 new employees to the downtown workforce, the project is expected to: help increase downtown spending supporting the economic vitality of our businesses, attract potential new retail businesses to complement the thriving restaurant base, and reduce our carbon foot print as more people travel to work and walk to nearby businesses.
“Crossing 900 will be another signature project that makes Downtown Redwood City the downtown on the entire Peninsula,” exclaims Mayor Aguirre. “It is yet another reminder that we are no longer the sleepy Redwood City of yesterday. Employers want to set up shop here, employees want to work in a bustling downtown that is next to every mode of public transportation, and residents and visitors alike want to shop, dine, and celebrate our cultural events at Courthouse Square. Crossing 900 will add to the fabric of downtown and everything the City has to offer.”
In order to complete the project, both of the Middlefield and Winslow lots will be closed for the construction and related staging activities. Acknowledging that construction is disruptive and can increase the challenge of finding parking in preferred locations, the City is implementing strategies to help residents and visitors find available parking. A recent study of Redwood City’s downtown parking reveals that there is currently capacity both during the day and in the evenings, including on Friday and Saturday nights when visitor trips are at their highest.
