Menlo Park Chamber of Commerce Approves The Sobrato Organization's Pair of Four Story Office Buildings

The City Council approved The Sobrato Organization's $106 million project. In addition to the four-story buildings that will total 259,920 square feet, the Cupertino-based developer intends to provide 867 parking spaces on a 13.3 acre site at 151 Commonwealth and 164 Jefferson drives. The Diageo North America distillery used to operate on the property, which lies adjacent to Highway 101 and the Dumbarton Rail Corridor, until it closed in 2011. Sobrato unveiled the project in 2012, which has since become known as the Commonwealth Corporate Center. the development will send almost $2 million over its first 15 years to Menlo Park's general fund. Because traffic congestion is a concern in the M-2 industrial district where the buildings will be located, Sobrato has committed to upgrading intersections at Marsh Road and Bayfront Expressway, and Constitution Drive and Chilco Street, among others. It also will extend sidewalks along Jefferson and Chrysler drives and connect them.
