Mixed Use Land Uses
Several areas in Burlingame provide opportunities for a mixture of residential and commercial development to create vibrant activity nodes, dynamic commercial corridors, and housing opportunities for all income levels. Each mixed-use designation meets the needs of the specific area in which it is located. Districts close to transit are suitable for higher-density housing combined with commercial uses and services that enable residents to minimize auto use. Mixed-use designations in established commercial areas provide opportunities for medium-density residential development that enhances the vibrancy of the commercial corridor while maintaining the scale of surrounding neighborhoods. The term “mixed use” applies to a compatible array of varied uses in a single building or comprehensive development, as well as a mix of uses within a district.
