1095 Rollins Road

150-unit, 6-story apartment building

Current Status:
The project was completed in September 2023.

Project Overview

The City of Burlingame has approved an application for the construction of a new 150-unit apartment development at 1095 Rollins Road, Burlingame. The project site is composed of two parcels that currently contain a restaurant and elevated tennis courts, with parking below. The proposal includes merging the two parcels to create a 46,827 square-foot site, demolishing the existing structures and constructing a new 6-story, 150-unit apartment building.  This project is currently under construction.

The project includes a subterranean garage containing surface, tandem, and stacked parking for 195 off-street parking spaces, with approximately 175 of the spaces provided in stackers. The units would include studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units, with 10% (15 units) designated affordable for moderate income households, and therefore the project includes a request to use the State Density Bonus, including waivers and incentives.

The project site is currently zoned C-1 and the General Plan designation is Shopping and Commercial. The applicant requested a rezoning and General Plan Amendment to R-4, high density residential (51 units/acre and up).
