Mountain View, CA
Castro is a mixed-use project located on the corner of Castro Street and El Camino Real, the “gateway” of Mountain View. Castro purports to address many concerns facing the city of Mountain View and its residendents today. Upon completion of this development project, Castro will provide 140 new condominiums, including units earmarked for affordable housing, in an area that currently has limited residential options. There are also plans to replace a nearby small park with a larger public park for the neighboring communities, so that all residents may enjoy the development’s contributions. The project is environmentally conscious at its core, offering sustainable design, and public parking with EV charging stations, among other benefits. The proposed square footage for this project is 160,000 square feet of residential and 20,000 square feet of commercial space. Centralized in the Silicon Valley, Castro provides convenient and walkable access to various amenities, retail and restaurants, and short commutes to some of the world’s largest companies such as Google, Apple, and eBay. With its prime location and pedestrian appeal, Castro connects to a wide variety of services without the burden of increased parking and traffic, delivering an additional benefit of reduced carbon emissions.
