Vacant Post Office Property in Burlingame to be Redeveloped into Modern Office/Retail Project


The Burlingame City Council has approved the development of a landmark project that will bring approximately 185k sf of office and retail space to the center of downtown Burlingame at the site of the long-vacant, 1.3-acre Burlingame Post Office property at 220 Park Road.

The project will be led by a joint venture of Sares Regis Group of Northern California (SRGNC) and Dostart Development Company (DDC). Groundbreaking is anticipated for Q3 of this year, with office and ground-floor retail space delivered by 2023.

The building design will preserve the former Post Office lobby, converting it into an iconic ground floor retail space that will open onto the immediately adjacent Burlingame Town Square, which will be constructed in coordination with the project. Additional, new ground-floor retail space will also activate the pedestrian streetscape along Lorton Avenue. Each level of the office building will have generous private terraces delivering grand views of San Francisco to the North, Hillsborough to the West, and the Bay to the East, while allowing for indoor/outdoor work opportunities and interaction with the adjacent public open space.

Both SRGNC and DDC have long histories of repositioning infill, transit-oriented projects in downtown areas throughout the Peninsula and Silicon Valley. The team understands the importance of this historic site to the City and is committed to ensuring that it realizes its full potential for the community and its future tenants.

“The proposal for the development of this important downtown property promises a building that will contribute much to the fabric of downtown Burlingame while acknowledging the importance this legacy property has to the community,” says City Mayor Ann O'Brien Keighran.

Situated in the vibrant heart of downtown Burlingame with immediate access to public transit and amenities, the new office building will drive economic development in the downtown at a time when retail uses depend on both day and evening traffic. The project will include the addition of 275 parking stalls that will be available for public parking during weekends and weekday evenings, further supporting downtown businesses. As a part of the project, $2 mil will be donated towards the future Town Square, to be located on the adjacent existing parking lot E. $3.5 mil will also be contributed towards affordable housing in the community.

The City has been working with the owners and various potential developers of 220 Park Road for several years, spearheaded by a working group comprising council members Donna Colson and Michael Brownrigg.

The new office project will initially be marketed for lease to tenants as either a single-tenant or multi-tenant building, with a single floor of about 29k sf being the minimum rentable space and 170k sf for the entire building. Mike Moran, Ben Paul and Marc Pope of Cushman & Wakefield’s Burlingame office are marketing the property for lease. The 15k sf of retail space will be marketed by Steve Cutter and Chris Homs of Lockehouse Retail Group.
