Bayfront Commercial

The Bayfront Commercial (BFC) designation provides opportunities for both local and tourist commercial uses. Permitted uses include entertainment establishments, restaurants, hotels and motels, retail, and higher-intensity office uses. Development in this area should prioritize public access to the waterfront; thus, the designation allows public open space and includes open space easements to implement local and regional trail plans, recreation, and habitat preservation objectives. The Bayfront Commercial designation provides a mix of uses, creating a welcoming environment for Burlingame residents and tourists alike to visit, shop, eat, bike and walk, and enjoy nature.

Development Standard: Maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR) of 3.0
