We have spent two years listening to the community and learning what the residents and city officials of Menlo Park envision for the future of this site. When the community objected to the designs originally submitted for review, Stanford restarted the process to better match its proposal with a design that is supported by the community and better aligned with the character of Menlo Park.
WHAT WE HEARD
Residents are deeply invested in the future of Menlo Park, and they support a transformation of the site at 500 El Camino Real that’s thoughtfully done and community oriented. Input focused on the project supporting:
Outdoor seating that’s accessible and easy to spend time in with friends and family
Landscape that’s peaceful and promotes more time outdoors
Activities and events that are fun and dynamic
Great restaurants or other retail options that are accessible during the week or on the weekends
