Salvatore Caruso Design remains the project architect. The project will loom over West San Carlos with a detailed collage-style exterior, while the rear of the structure flows with terraces cascading down to three floors overlooking a private driveway. Facade materials will include painted plaster, bamboo-style finishes and marble tiles.
The 85-foot-tall structure will produce approximately 227,620 square feet of which 125,260 square feet will be for a senior care facility, 78,070 square feet for housing, 6,000 square feet for four retail spaces, and 18,280 square feet for parking. Parking for 113 cars in a space-saving stacker and 75 bicycles will be included.
The project operates as two buildings with shared facilities centered around a courtyard. The two uses would share two L-shaped halves each with an O-shaped floor plan. The plan would create 61 residential units and 246 senior units, with the space divided between 109 memory care apartments and 137 assisted living beds. Each floor will have a nurse’s station and activity room. Residential unit sizes vary from studio, 16 one-bedroom, and 44 one-bedroom.
The focus of the design is the landscape architect. The surrounding sidewalk will be decorated with trees and planters. The POPOS pocket plaza will be located at the corner of West San Carlos and Brooklyn Street. The apartment lobbies can be accessed from both streets leading to a furnished courtyard. The upper lounge is accessed from a port on a private back passage. The facility is connected to a lounge, library, dining room and rest space.
The 1.23-acre parcel is located along Retail Road, just a few blocks from the Lincoln High School campus. Westfield Mall and Santana Row are just 1 mile away.
BKF Engineers is providing civil engineering consultations for the project. The estimated cost and construction schedule have not yet been determined.
