Redevelopment of Burlingame’s Historic Post Office Property Well Underway


Construction of the new 220 Park development in downtown Burlingame is nearing completion. The project returns and integrates the historic Burlingame Post Office building to its original location.

The 1,010-ton 1940s-era Burlingame Post Office, temporarily relocated 120 feet away to facilitate construction on a two-level underground garage, has now been seamlessly restored and integrated into the new building structure. This restoration prepares the historic building to be transformed into an iconic restaurant space at the base of the six-story 220 Park development, a joint venture between Dostart Development Company (DDC) and Sares Regis Group of Northern California (SRGNC).

Designed by KSH Architects, the 185k sf, Class A office and retail space at 220 Park will be ready for occupancy by the spring of 2024. This landmark project boasts impeccable design, expansive terraces with unrivaled mountain views, and a transit-oriented location in the center of the one of the Peninsula’s most sought-after communities.

Beyond the workplace transformation, the 220 Park project has also made a significant contribution to the development of Burlingame Town Square, the "signature open space" envisioned in the Downtown Specific Plan. The project's support, along with additional funding from the State of California, has enabled the realization of this vibrant public space. The Town Square will serve as a dynamic hub for outdoor dining, socializing, and cultural events, and the restored and repurposed Post Office will play an integral role in this new downtown focal point.

The task of safely relocating the historic structure was undertaken by San Jose-based Garden City Construction, a company with more than 30 years of experience rejuvenating and rehabilitating historic properties.

Architect Ruth Todd, FAIA, principal of Page & Turnbull, and the project’s preservation leader noted, “This complex restoration will result in a beautiful re-interpretation of this historic post office, featured in a one-of-a-kind project. We believe the preservation and redevelopment is successful in connecting Burlingame’s past with its bright future.”
