Historic Burlingame Post Office Building Temporarily Relocated and Restored as Part of New Downtown Mixed-Use Project


Work is underway to lift and temporarily move the historic 1940s Burlingame post office building—weighing 1,010 tons—approximately 120 feet from its current location. The temporary relocation accommodates the construction of a new underground parking garage directly beneath the building’s current location as part of the new 220 Park Road office and retail development. While relocated, restoration will proceed on the historic structure before the building is moved back on site and integrated with the 220 Park building as an iconic, active restaurant space at the base of the office building.

The task of safely relocating the historic structure is being undertaken by San Jose-based Garden City Construction. The relocation of the building ensures its safety during construction of the new 220 Park Road development project, led by a joint venture of Sares Regis Group of Northern California (SRGNC) and Dostart Development Company (DDC). The project broke ground in September and will deliver 185k sf of new office and retail space at the long-vacant, 1.3-acre lot in the center of downtown Burlingame.

“The engineering and construction techniques being used to preserve this community asset are a wonder to watch,” says Councilmember Donna Colson. According to Colson, the project will culminate in a dynamic new downtown plaza, more evening and weekend parking options, and a beautiful interpretation of a historic post office that will once again serve as a gathering space and center of commerce.

In the summer of 2023, the post office building, built in the 1940s, will be moved back to its original location and integrated into the new office and retail building, designed by KSH Architects, as an anchor for the ground-floor retail space.

Once finished, the repurposed post office will open onto the new adjacent Burlingame Town Square, which is scheduled to begin construction immediately following the completion of the office/retail building. City leaders envision the future Town Square to be a gathering place for outdoor dining and socializing, with flexibility to host live concerts, performances, and other cultural events. The 220 Park building will front this new active downtown space.
